Juicy Pork Chops with Sweet and Sour Peppers

Once again we forgot al about time and suddenly it was dinnertime. We are not that good at eating at the same time every night, and most often we use several hours in the kitchen, experimenting and having fun cooking.

Today has been nothing like that. Chris has been working late followed by an hour or two on his other hobby (designing and producing furnitures in metal and old wood), while I (Ann) has been in bed due to neck pains from an old whiplash.

As we had forgotten al about time, we decided to make something easy and quick but still delicious. It took less than 25 minutes (including prepping) and tasted fabulous 🙂

 

Ingredients (4 servings)

Pork chops

4 pork chops

4 cloves garlic, roughly chopped

1 handful thyme stems

1 tbsp. butter

Salt

Pepper

 

Sweet & Sour Peppers

1 tbsp. olive olie

2 red peppers

2 yellow peppers

2 red onions

1 jalapeños

1 cup edamamme beans

1 lime, juice and zest

2 tbsp. sugar

1/2 cup red wine vinegar

Salt

Pepper

 

Begin with prepping the vegetables. Remove the seeds from the peppers and cut them lengthwise. Then cut the onions and the jalapeño into thin slices. We are both chili lovers so we rarely remove the seeds and stems from the chilies, but if you like it more mild, you can remove it (or leave out the jalapeño).

Add olive olie to a frying pan and heat. Then add the peppers, onions, jalapeños and edamamme beans and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add sugar and sir to combine. When the peppers get a glazed surface add the red wine vinegar and juice and zest from the lemon. Season with salt and pepper. Turn down the heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes or until all the fluid had thickened.

While the sweet and sour peppers are simmering you can make the pork chops. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan and add butter, garlic and thyme. When the butter begins get brown and smell like nuts, add the pork chops and fry for about 4 minutes before turning it. Fry 4 minutes on the other side too, while pouring some of butter over the top. This will give the meat a love nutty taste on the surface and prevent it from drying out in the frying process.

Arrange the sweet and sour pepper mix on a plate and top with a delicious and juicy pork chop and serve with bread or rice.

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There
    are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any suggestions? Bless you!

  2. I love that “Grand Theft Auto” and “Saints Row” have the radio function,
    because we all have different styles and tastes. old self again, feeling secure and confident, even if you have never
    felt confident before. The interesting part of this game is that you
    have the option to either play solo or opt for multiple players.
    Many games that involve shooting targets with state of the
    art guns also attract kids in a big way. On the other hand, the ones created for adult entertainment are usually constructed in such a way that the only
    thing they provide to their users is a way to beat boredom.

    After you have obtained the game data, you can always delete the download.
    More realistic would be a game that makes you actually
    hunt for hours on end in a tree stand shivering from the cold.

    The developed of the single games or multiplayer games
    are also popular amongst the gamers because the defense and sport games need more graphics and artificial intelligence in the game.

  3. Carry a few hours as well as visit you are able
    to appear on several other places so that you realize what exactly is readily available.
    Although Olay is known to have made many products,
    including Complete, Professional, Quench (North America),
    White Radiance (Asia) and Olay Vitamins (USA), the Total Effect is
    the only product of Olay which is considered as the first expansion of Olay
    outside the moisturizer cream market. Either
    constant sunshine or an undertank heating pad should be able to
    fulfill this requirement.
