Another great local dinner! The pork chops are from one of my favorite farms, Fickle Creek.  This time I made a quick spicy rub for the pork chops.

1/2  teaspoon  garlic powder

1/2  teaspoon  sugar

1/2  teaspoon  paprika

1/2  teaspoon  chili powder

1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper

1/4  teaspoon  salt

Just rub this all over the pork chops before you cook them in a large skillet.
The greens were braised with garlic and red pepper flakes.  A few splashes of red wine vinegar just before serving rounds out the flavor of the collards and chard.

This was another one of those nights where things just didn’t quite go as planned. The recipe was Roasted Pork Loin with Parsley-Shallot Sauce from the always wonderful cookbook, The Food You Crave by Ellie Krieger. I had made this recipe before and it is really yummy. When I was getting ready to make dinner I realized I didn’t have any parsley or shallots, so there goes the sauce.  I decided to cut the pork loin into pork chops, and sorta followed the recipe from there. Here is what I did…..

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp olive oil

2 tsp finely chopped fresh sage

2 tsp finely chopped fresh rosemary

2 tsp finely chopped fresh thyme

1/8 tsp black pepper

2 boneless pork chops

Mash the garlic and salt together to form a paste, transfer to a small bowl and combine with the olive oil, herbs and pepper. Rub the paste all over the pork chops.

Transfer the pork chops to a roasting pan and roast until 155F (about 20 minutes, depending on how thick the chops are). 

The pork was still really yummy even without the parsley shallot sauce. I served this with some kale sautéed with garlic, some roasted sweet potatoes and roasted butternut squash.
