Today’s Menu: Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 004

Wow what a gorgeous day to start off the early Memorial Day Weekend! Sunny, not a cloud in the sky, and a high of 70 degrees. A perfect day! Went to Kroger for a few items for myself and my Mom and back home. Did a little price comparison update between Kroger and Walmart, more on the results later. Took the cart out for a while and went down to the lake. For dinner tonight it was Grilled Pork Chops w/ Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Potatoes.

 

 

 

Grilled Chops, Red Potatoes 001
Fired the grill up for part of the meal. I had bought a package of Kroger Center Cut Pork Chops while at Kroger earlier, beautiful looking Chops! I seasoned the Chops with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, after seasoning I sprayed a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray on both sides of the Chops. I always do this when grilling to help the Meat not to stick on the grill grate. I grilled the Chops till a thermometer read 150 degrees, grilled about 4 1/2 minutes per side. I flipped them one time and after flipping them I brushed on some JB’s Haug Waush BBQ Sauce on them. JB’s is my favorite BBQ Sauce, it’s a flavorful and a nice thick sauce with several different kinds. The Chops came out moist and full of flavor!

 

 

 

Roasted Red Potatoes
Then for sides it was 2 of my favorites, Fresh Roasted Asparagus and Roasted Herb Red Potatoes. For the Red Potatoes, preheat oven to 400 degrees, I needed 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 tablespoon minced fresh or Dried Rosemary, 1 tablespoon Dried Thyme, Rubbed Sage, and 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper. I start by heating up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat and as that’s heating up quartered the Red Potatoes. Combined all ingredients in a large bowl and added the Potatoes. Toss to coat Potatoes and add them to the Skillet. Fry them about 4-5 minutes and transfer the Skillet to the preheated oven. That’s why I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven. I skillet and easy clean up! Bake them for 20 minutes or until their fork tender.

 

 

 
With your oven already at 400 degrees you can make the Roasted Asparagus also. To prepare the Asparagus I just needed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Cloves Garlic (minced), Sea Salt, Freshly grated Black Pepper, Lemon Juice, and Shredded Parmesan Cheese. Rinse clean the asparagus. Break the tough ends off of the asparagus and discard. Lay the asparagus spears out in a single layer in a baking dish or a foil-covered roasting pan. Drizzle olive oil over the spears, roll the asparagus back and forth until they are all covered with a thin layer of olive oil. (Alternatively you can put the asparagus and oil in a plastic bag, and rub the bag so that the oil gets evenly distributed.) Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub over the asparagus so that they are evenly seasoned. Place pan in oven and cook for approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on how thick your asparagus spears are, until lightly browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Drizzle with a little fresh lemon juice and shredded Parm Cheese before serving. Chops, Red Potatoes, and Asparagus, What is not to like! For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
