Hendo’s Hong Kong Pork Chop

If you have been inspired by Chinese New Year, today’s recipe is so called as it combines Chinese food with the magic Sheffield ingredient, Henderson’s relish! Eat Great Meat are based in Sheffield, so we love to make the most of our own local delicacies! Our pork also comes from a local farm, which is how we guarantee its freshness and delicious flavour. This is a simple recipe and you will have most of the ingredients in your cupboard. J Black Rice Vinegar can be bought at most Asian supermarkets or white rice vinegar can be bought at most supermarkets.
