Pork, Celeriac and Apple Bake

As the nights get cooler, make sure your family are keeping warm with this one pot pork, celeriac and apple tray bake.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

Servings: 2 people


Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C.

Cut the celeriac in half and place it cut-side down on a chopping board. Use a knife to cut off the peel, then cut in half again and slice the celeriac as thinly as you can – the thinner it is, the quicker it will cook. 

Pour 1 tbsp olive oil on to a baking tray and layer the celeriac all over its base.

Scatter the sliced garlic and lemon zest, sprinkle over salt and pepper and then layer the apple slices on top.

Scrunch up the rosemary sprigs in your hands to release the oils and scatter them around the apples.

Place the pork chops on top of the apples and season again with salt and pepper.

Pour over the rest of the oil. Cook for 25-30 minutes or until the celeriac is soft and the pork is cooked through.
