RECIPE Preparation
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add butter and flour. Cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Stir in ½ cup water, demi-glace and herb sprigs. Add salt, pepper and paprika to taste and cook for a few moments till thickened, set aside.
  2. Season the chops with salt and pepper then coat in the breadcrumbs.
  3. In a large skillet over high heat, add a bit of oil then sear the chops until browned, about 2 minutes each side. Finish cooking gently for 5 minutes in the sauce: remove the chops for a moment and add the cream into the pan, remove the herb sprigs. Put the chops back in the sauce and serve.
