Italian Pork Chops
12 oz Pork Chops (or 12 oz pork tenderloin cut in two halves)
1 can Diced Tomatoes (with juice, or about 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 C)
1 oz Onion (small, sweet)
1 t Italian Seasoning (1 condiment)
1⁄4 t Red Pepper (flakes) (1/2 condiment)
salt (thicker grain is better, like sea salt or kosher salt)
A small salad would be appropriate with this meal.
Spray pan with Pam. Heat searing pan or deeper saute pan on medium heat.
Salt and pepper the pork chops on both sides. Then, while heat is still
medium, sear the chops until brown on the outside and/or a meat therm.
reads about 160 degrees. (About 3-4 min a side, longer for thicker
chops) Remove chops from pan and place on plate with a foil tent.
Slice onion into thin strips, add to pan you cooked the pork in.
Allow onion to absorb pork juice and get crispy/tender, and kind of
Add the tomatoes with juices, Italian seasoning and red pepper
flakes. Simmer 8-10 min covered, stirring occasionally, until flavors
have combined and sauce starts to thicken. Add the chops back to the
dish for a min or two to warm and absorb some sauce. Put one chop on a
plate and cover with about 3/4 C of sauce, and Presto! The beginning of a
great L&G!! (you end up with a little tomato/onion sauce left
over... but I just experiment with that the next day!
If you use the loin, cook the same way, just adjust your meat searing
time... if the meat therm. reflects 160 you are good to go. I like to
use loin instead of chops, because it is more tender/juicy and is harder
Shredded Pork: Cook pork in boiling water from frozen. Add salt, tomato, garlic and an onion to the broth. Cook for 3 hours on medium or until the meat breaks apart. If you used a lean cut reserve broth at is. If not sort meat from fat and cook broth. Skim fat off the top of cooked broth and reserve to serve with soup.
