Oven Roasted Pork Chops and Grilled Veggies
So I haven't had a chance to place any postings as I have been rather busy with work. Equally cumbersome is the fact that I still deal with my tooth extractions. This has been very hard trying to cook while still in a little pain.
Well, I have continued to cook some stuff that is rather healthy. The following recipe is healthy, yet has plenty of good flavor that anyone could enjoy. With that, you can always have a simple sauce/gravy to go with the meat. Two types of sauces that I like to use are the Red Eye Gravy or a Simple Brown Gravy.
6 pork chops
1/2 cup red wine
1 tbsp Worcestershire
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
1 onion, diced
Start with marinating the meat. Place the pork chops into a bowl and add the balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, garlic, paprika, pepper and salt.
Notice that the veggies are slightly tender. You don't necessarily want all the veggies to be too tender (unless that is your goal). If you want, you can cover the veggies as you grill. They will continue to cook under the cover (foil preferably). This can make the veggies a little more tender.
I opted to use the leftover White Rice with Basil and Onions. This was a great meal as it was light and it was really tasty! What is equally tasty is having this with some Red Eye Gravy or a Simple Brown Gravy! Enjoy!
