Lovely Local Devon Loin Chops
Devon Porkers are amazing when made with Devon pork, but please do source locally to wherever you live. The UK has some amazing produce and we should buy local as often as we can.
We locally call these Devon Porkers, a twist on how to cook your favourite pork loin chop. These are easily transferred to the bbq when entertaining in the hot Summer months, slipping down with a crisp Devon cider!
