I had a couple of french cut pork chops in the fridge that I bought from Trader Joe’s on Sunday so I knew I had to cook them today. It’s always fun trying to come up with a new a flavorful way to cook. In this recipe I crusted the chop with a California style garlic powder.
Crusted Pork Chop
6 PP per serving
- 2 french cut pork chops (about 7 or 8 oz with the bone)
- 1 shallot, sliced
- Lawry’s garlic powder with parsley
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Season pork chops on both sides with salt. Cover chops with the garlic powder and sprinkle with pepper.
Heat a frying pan to medium high. Add olive oil and shallots. Fry shallots for about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the pork chops and sear on both sides. Lower the heat and slowly add a bit of water to the pan. If the pan starts to smoke remove from heat and continue to add a little more water. Return to heat and simmer on medium for about 12 to 15 minutes.
I served mine with steamed green beans with a squeeze of lemon juice and rice for an additional 5 PP.
I can’t believe this cute and tasty dessert I found at Trader Joe’s. Each cone is 2 PP.
Aren’t they adorable? I think these are great to serve at a dinner get together when everyone says they don’t have room for dessert.
