Din-din

Okay… so maybe I will overkill this recipe thing, but I found this site the Healthified Kitchen and SOOO many of the recipes on there look delicious! This recipe we are eating for dinner is one of them. I’ve never been a pork fan, but this year I have really exerted myself to branch out. I still can’t stomach ham, but I have come a LONG way with pork roasts, chops and country style ribs! That’s nice too because it’s the cheapest meat to buy most of the time!!

Anyway, I kinda wish I had waited on this recipe because Stu isn’t going to be home for dinner. I forgot about that. I usually do something way easy… like spaghetti-oh’s when he’s not home. 😉 BUT hopefully there will be some left for him to try because I already took a bite and it’s SO yummy! I didn’t have pork chop medallions do I used what was in the freezer, bone-in pork chops. The meat cooked up so tender, it just fell right off the bones when I stirred in the sour cream. The dog will be happy for the seasoned bones I have no doubt.

So anyway here’s the recipe, you really ought to try this one. It’s hardly any more bother than spaghetti-oh’s, but wow, the flavor!!!! I was planning to serve it over rice because we have a ton to use up, but at the last minute I opted for egg noodles. The lads seem to like noodles, and right now that’s one less battle I want to have to fight. 🙂

P.S. (this is Rachel again) I couldn’t figure out where the rest of the flour went in this recipe, so I just dumped what was left of the “dredging” flour over the chops before putting in the onions and broth. Helps thicken things up. Oh, and I didn’t fry the chops first either, just tossed em in raw. 🙂 One less thing to do, it all ends up cooked anyway! Hee hee!
