NEFF RECIPES: OVEN BAKED KOREAN PORK CHOPS

Serves 2.

These Korean pork chops have a cooking time of just 15-20 minutes. Dinner is five minutes from being ready when you receive a phone call to say that someone is running late. But dinner doesn’t have to be ruined. With the help of Neff Home Connect app, you can ask the oven to reduce the heat and turn on the steam to stop dinner drying out – without setting foot in the kitchen.

TO DELAY YOUR MEAL:
If you need to delay the time dinner is ready when the chops are already cooking in the oven, simply cook for 10 minutes, then ask the oven to turn down to 90°C with low added steam. They can stay in the oven in this way for a further 15-20 minutes. Alternatively, if the chops are cooked, turn off the oven and open the door for 5 minutes to release the heat. Close the door, then approx. 15 minutes before required, ask the oven to heat to CircoTherm® 190°C with medium added steam for 10-12 minutes.

Note: don’t leave the pork chops in the oven in this way for more than 30 minutes. If it’s likely to be longer, then firstly remove the chops from the oven when cooked. Secondly cool, cover and refrigerate (for up to a day). Finally place back in the oven, uncovered, at CircoTherm® 190°C with medium added steam for 10-12 minutes until piping hot throughout.
