Welcome to my blog! As you can see from my little tagline up there, I plan to review recipes that I make, and restaurants that I go to. Don’t worry, I will always either include the full recipe, or a link to the recipe so you can try it out for yourself!
To start with, I made Sherry Apple Pork Chops last night. I got this recipe from Allrecipes.com, so I was able to read some reviews from others who made it, and I am so glad I did. I was able to make some changes to the recipe that I think made it a lot better.
First, I did my mise-en-place (Thank you Worst Cooks). So I peeled and sliced my apples and put them in the pan. I covered the pan with some cling-wrap to help stop the apples from browning while I worked with the pork. I seasoned my pork on both sides with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and then seared it on both sides in the bacon fat. I let the pork rest in the pan while I added my seasonings (brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter) to the apples. I also crumbled the bacon I cooked earlier and added it to the apples.
Then it was just a matter of placing the pork on top of everything and pouring the sherry over everything. I didn’t have a lid for the pan I used, so I just used some aluminum foil (foooiilll) to cover the pan. Baked the whole thing for half an hour at 350F. Turned out freaking delicious. I had meant to pick up some stuffing or make some mashed potatoes to go with it, but I didn’t get to it/forgot. Oh well, I had some leftover soup that I had made the other day so I paired it with that and a nice glass of wine! Dinner was served!
