Tonight’s Goode & Gooseberry Project Recipe is The Best Pork Chops…
Perfect name for ’em…just sayin’
Just so happens I cooked this little gem back when I was out of town a few weeks ago… regular readers might remember that jewel of a “stocked” kitchen… well she’s baaaaccckkkk!
This time I came prepared…mmmwwhhhaahaahaa– I showed that butter-knife-wanna-be-steak-knife who was boss… Ya see like any good ole boy, my Goode Ole Boy had a serious boy knife and I decided to give it a try… after a GOODe scrubbin’…just sayin’ 😉
I summoned my inner Paula Deen and melted 1/4 cup of butter in my skillet…
I then added 2 onions… sliced quite nicely with my GOODe Ole Boy knife 😉
I then put a lid on things to golden them up.
Now if you want the quick version of this recipe grab up some boneless thin sliced chops vs. the thick bone in chops.
I needed something quick, so I got these and cut about an hour off of the recipe.
If you get a larger cut of meat, you will want to cook the full time or they won’t be tender/flavorful… don’t ask me or my guests for dinner last weekend how I know.
Once your onions are glossy, add your chops and season with salt and pepper.
Brown on both sides and then go grab some chicken broth and…. you guessed it, my favorite cooking ingredient… Sherry (substituted for white wine).
Add a cup of each to the skillet… mmmm…sherry!
Now cover and let magic happen… cook for 1 1/2 for bigger cuts or 45 minutes for the thin chops
Now, uncover and you simply must smell all of the deliciousness…
Now add 4-5 quartered red potatoes
And, 1/2 a bag of sliced carrots
Salt and pepper and cover for another 45 minutes (or 1 1/2 hours for larger chops)
Uncover for the most deliciously tender pork chop yumminess…
Here’s my version of the recipe 🙂
