Oh Pork. Chops. You're so nice and easy. So quick and cheap. So beautiful and delicious. Beautiful with steamed beet greens and the beets they came with. Creamy new potatoes boiled with carrots. Buttered. Salted. Peppered...
In all seriousness though, Mary's recipe for salt and pepper pork chops is amazing. One of my favorites for sure.
And all the produce you see in this picture is from the sample bag of my future CSA packages. How exciting. And delicious.
Salt and Pepper Pork Chops
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
1 tablespoon granulated sugar (I used light borwn sugar cuz it was easier to get to at the time)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 pounds boneless thin-cut pork loin chops
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Mix ingredients together. Marinate for 5 minutes or overnight. Cook for 10-16 minutes depending on thickness.
Steamed Beet Greens
Cut the stems off of beets, steam until wilted, toss with one minced garlic clove, butter, salt and pepper. Make a nice bed for any vegetable to lay on top of.
