Still no pictures - when I cook I want to eat, not take pictures.
I made some delicious pork chops last night. I intended to make Tonkatsu, a Japanese pork cutlet pounded thin, dredged in flour, egg & panko bread crumbs and fried. It's served with rice and shredded cabbage & is delicious.
But when I got home I did not want to go through all those steps. Instead, I channeled my sister and made something based on a dish she made for me once. She roasted chicken in the oven and glazed it with honey & mustard. Awesome!
Because it was nearly 90 degrees yesterday I did not want to turn on the oven. Instead, I cooked the chops in a skillet. They were cut very thin and were boneless. All I did was season them with a seasoning blend, sliced an onion thin, sauteed the onion in oil and added the chops. I turned them until they were well browned all over and nearly cooked through.
A plop of grainy, spicy brown mustard went into the pan along with a hefty dribble of honey and a goodly splash of whiskey. I stirred it all together and kept turning the chops until they were coated with the glaze and cooked through.
These would be good with anything - rice, scalloped or mashed potatoes, and any kind of green vegetable. Try them and see if you like them. A quick and easy week-night main dish!
