Today’s Menu: Herbed Pork Chops w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Thyme, Asparagus, and Whole Grain BreadBaked herb chops 005

 

 

While at our local Meijer the other day I had picked some beautiful Pork Loin Center Cut Chops. So for dinner I prepared Herbed Pork Chops w/ Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Thyme, Asparagus, and Whole Grain Bread.

When making the Herb Chops I like to grill them but with the bad weather we have today I’ll be baking them. To make them I’ll need 1 cup of Kraft Free Italian Dressing and 1 tablespoon each of fresh herbs, chopped Thyme, Basil, Oregano, and Rosemary. Place chops in a resealable plastic bag. Add dressing and herbs; seal and refrigerate 3 to 8 hours. Remove chops from marinade; discard marinade. To prepare them I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. I then placed them on a broiler pan that has a metal grill rack, spraying the rack with Pam Spray before placing the Chops on the rack. I then baked the Chops for minutes, turning once until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. Just love this recipe for Chops! The dressing combined with the herbs gives the Chops an incredible flavor.
For side dishes to go with the Pork Chops I prepared Roasted Red Potatoes with Rosemary and Thyme, Asparagus, along with Aunt Millie’s Whole Grain Bread. For the Red Potatoes I needed 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh or Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon Dried Thyme, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. I baked them at 400 degrees, same as the Pork Chops so I was able to bake them with the Chops at the same time. I combined all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to coat potatoes. Transfer potatoes to a shallow roasting pan. Roasted for about 30 minutes, until tender and golden. The asparagus was a Meijer brand. They come frozen and heated them in a skillet and seasoned with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt. Recipes for the Pork Chops and Red Potatoes are below.
