Measure Ingredient
1 ounce Butter
2 tablespoons Oil
1 medium Onion; chopped
6 Pork spare-rib or boneless chops
2 Bay leaves
6 Peppercorns
1¼ cup Cider; dry
Sauce:
1 ounce Butter

Cover and cook in the oven Gas Mark 4, 350F, 180C for 45 minutes or until tender. *Remove chops and set aside in a serving dish to keep warm while making sauce.
