K so today I just have to share what we are having for dinner. The house is clean (almost) and I actually have time to make something really yummy for dinner tonight! So we are going to have Pork Chops with Cider Sauce, Roasted potatoes, green beans and broccoli(cause Hunter doesn't like green beans). followed by Caramel Apple Cupcakes!!
OK so pork chops:
4 center cut pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 onions thinly sliced
1 tbsp. finely chopped fresh sage
1 1/2 cups apple cider
Season pork chops with salt and pepper. In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, warm olive oil. Add onions and cook, stirring, until softened and golden, about 5 min. Push onions to edges of skillet and add chops. Cook, turning once, until browned, about 6-minutes total.
Sprinkle sage over chops and pour cider into pan. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until chops are cooked through, 8 to 10 mins. Remove chops from pan, raise heat to high, and boil sauce until reduced and thickened, 2-3 min. Pour sauce and onions over chops and serve.
Enough potatoes to serve the number of people you are serving! Any kind of potato you want, although thin skinned potatoes work very well! I used heirloom fingerling potatoes cause they were cute and on sale! Garlic(chopped or powder) salt and pepper to taste, rosemary(fresh chopped). Cut potatoes into bite size pieces and sprinkle with seasonings, drizzle 1/4 cup olive oil(depends on how many potatoes used actually, but enough to coat them all liberally). Bake for 30-40 mins(until done) at 415*f.
If you have fresh veggies, green beans/broccoli throw them on a separate pan, season, and bake for 10-15 mins at 415*!!!!!
