We hear all the time that cooking is difficult or that it takes too much time. It’s good to be reminded that simplicity can yield really tasty as well as visually appealing dishes.
We present for you a simple pan seared pork chop. Salt, pepper, and bacon fat saved from previous batches of bacon.
Alongside the chop are some roasted veggies. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and generous amounts of olive oil. If you’re short on time like we usually are, you can pre-steam the veggies by microwaving them covered until they’re steamy but not cooked. Then toss them with the seasoning and olive oil, transfer to an aluminum foil lined pan, and roast at a high temperature (450F-ish) until done to your liking.
Those pretty purple onions are just pickled red onions. We’ll talk about those another time – but suffice it to say that they’re simple to prepare ahead of time and are a nice condiment and aestheticly pleasing garnish.
