Most of the time, I enjoy them plain. But lately,
need something to put on them. (salt free, sugar
free, msg free)

French Onion soup and Garlic. Mix the two together in a cast iron skillet. Put in the chops and cook on medium, turning ever now and again. When the chops are done, use the soup/garlic mix to make gravy for the mashed potatoes. Add some green beans for a veg. And home-made cherry pie for dessert.

Dang, just made myself hungry.

I thaw them out, mix a slug of ketchup, splash of soy sauce & touch of Jabanero Sauce and smear all over them, marinate overnite in a fridge baggie and ready to go! If you're hungry now, cook them now!

...although you guys got me wondering about spoiling them before getting them in my skillet..

Ok it goes,fresh garlic[lots of it if you like it], fresh onions,fresh red bell peppers,[no salt? no sugar? or msg?,makes sense for the last one though]2tbls olive oil,a drop of lemmon and black pepper.Let it rest for some hours.Get it in a skillet,covered. Simmer at a very,very low heat,from the very start,for about two hours,remember,very low heat,the skillet will fill with all the chops tasty juices...hmm..let it cook for two hours.Now...turn the heat to a full hight speed...all the way,watch them,you don't want it to get burned.Get it almost dry to a nice brown color.
Pork Chops cooked this way will be as tender as a babys butt.Of course they will taste even better with a bit of salt:-)

You can save 1/2 a cup of the chops juice to make a gravy for,maybe, mashed 'potatoes',white rice or pasta.Saute 1/4 of an onion in butter,add the remaining juice.Let it simmer for 5minutes.Meanwhile mix 1tsp corn starch in one ounce of water;add it to the simming onions,mixing with a wisk.Turn it off.Keep mixing until you get a nice gravy.

I love the Cesar Salad for this , but also saute vegetables.

Some red wine maybe? Or Beer!!

Try it WallSal, you won't regret it...

Hope you like it

PS:I'm having Lipton Soup right now...

I always marinate them. Little garlic, lea & perrins, white pepper, generous gingera and if your not offended a can of beer. Let them sit over night. You'l love them.

Hmmmmm...I'll try your recipe..    Posted 09-25-2002 at 17:11:03       [Reply]  [Send Email]

I forgot the oil.

I like mine just fried with a little salt and pepper on them. If you want extra tender pork chops try soaking them in milk for a while before you cook them. Another thing that makes good marinade is Italian salid dressing.

Sage accompanies pork well. Just a touch, though. Too much is, well, too much!

I like using Garlic power, onion powder, celery seeds and fresh ground black pepper. Add a little olive oil and fry or grill.

Very good this way:)
