Pour over the meat and let it sit for 3-4 minutes. Remove the chops from the pan and place on a rack. Place the speculoos crust slices on the meat and press down slightly. Cook in a preheated oven, middle rack for about 10 minutes. Remove and let rest for 2-3 minutes.
  3. For the chanterelles and brussels sprouts, heat the olive oil in a pan and fry the mushrooms. Add half of the diced onion and fry with salt and pepper. Add chopped parsley. Sauté the remaining onion in butter and add the brussels sprouts. Season with salt, pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. Cook creamy with the broth and cream.
  4. Fry the parsley leaves in hot vegetable oil and drain.
  5. Now arrange the chops on a plate, sprinkle with the remaining dried plums. Serve the chanterelles-brussels sprouts as a side dish. Decorate with the fried parsley leaves and serve.
