Today’s Menu: Herbed Pork Chops w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Glazed ApplesHer crusted grilled chop 004

 

 

First flu – free day in a while and it feels great! Plus it’s a beautiful and sunny day outside, about 50 degrees! I was even able to get out and enjoy that sunshine for a while. For dinner I prepared a Herbed Pork Chop w/ Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Glazed Apples. Classic comfort food alert!

 
About 10 o’clock this morning I made my marinade for the Pork Chop. easy and quick marinade to whip up all you need is; 1/4 cup Kraft Free Italian dressing and 1 tablespoon each of fresh herbs, chopped (any combination – chives, basil, oregano, rosemary). Then I placed the chop in a resealable plastic bag. Added dressing and herbs; seal and refrigerate 8 to 24 hours. Remove the chop from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chop over medium-high heat (or broil 4 inches from heat) for 8 to 9 minutes, turning once until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. You then have one great tasting Chop! The marinade is perfect for Pork. It comes out very tender and the flavor is incredible! I prepared it on a cast iron griddle and was really pleased on how it grilled. I’ll be using this more often. This is about my favorite Pork Chop recipe and I found it at the Pork Be Inspired web site. I left the Chop recipe, which is for 4 Pork Chops, and a link to the web site at the end of the post.
I prepared 3 easy to fix side dishes to go with the Pork Chop; Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, and Glazed Apples. I only had a half a serving of the Bob Evans Glazed Apples. The Mashed potatoes and Glazed Apples were Bob Evans Brand. Both come in a microwavable package and both taste as good homemade. the Apples are always a perfect pairing with Pork. I’ll be using some of the Glazed Apples for dessert tonight also. I also used Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Then for dessert later tonight I’ll be having Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream topped with a tablespoon of the Bob Evans Glazed Apples.
