I'm not a cook. I'm a baker.
But since my family can't live on cakes and pies (Why, I ask you, why?), occasionally I have to cook. Real food.
So in one of my handy-dandy quick recipe books, I found a new one to try tonight. It's Peppered Pork Chops and Pilaf. (Say that three times fast!)
It starts with pork chops, covered in seasoned pepper, cooked in a skillet.
Remove them from the heat, and add a can of chicken broth, 3 cups of cut veggies (I used broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, and onions),
and 2 cups of uncooked instant rice. Boil it, cover it, reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes. Add the pork chops back in and heat until warmed through. Garnish with roasted red peppers strips.
Dinner is served!
This was pretty tasty. My hubby loved it, and my "I'm-almost-a-vegetarian" middle child ate like he hadn't seen food in a week!
I have to say that my favorite part was the roasted red peppers. YUM-MY!! I didn't notice that they were roasted right away. But, since I play by the rules, I had to roast them. Thank the good Lord for the internet - I learned how to roast them! (And you can too - see this.)
OK, so maybe that doesn't look too appealing. But trust me when I say it was delicious!!
That's what Works for Me today!
