Meals that take you home...
A brainy meal is always about 20 minutes away. Tonight, try tender Iowa pork chops (preferably boneless) in pan fried in honey sesame oil marinated in a sweet and savory fig infused balsamic vinegar. Suggested sides: baked/boiled potato, green salad or other vegetable; top with a squeeze of fresh lemon/lime along with a couple of mint leaves and serve with a glass of Pinot Grigio.
To begin: marinate the chops in the fig balsamic vinegar for no more than 8 min. then saute the chops in 1 tbs of coconut oil (organic) and of 3 tbs honey flavored sesame oil (you can make your own using sesame oil infused with honey) in a large uncovered skillet on med-high heat, browning on both sides up to 10 min. To that, sprinkle in some red pepper flakes, garlic powder (organic), sea salt and dried herbs: rosemary, mint and oregano (fresh dried).
