Simple Pork Chops, Potatoes and Zucchini


I prefer lamb chops, next would be veal chops but a good 'ole bone-in pork chop will do the trick just as well! 

Bone-in is always better! You just get more flavor. And, c'mon, who doesn't want to gnaw on the bone? !!!!

I picked up 3 nice size chops today. 


Salt and pepper them generously. Use about a 1/2 cup of flour seasoned with salt and pepper and then dredge each side of the chops in the flour mixture. Set aside. 



Heat about a 1/4 cup of canola or vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add a hunk of butter and wait till it's all hot and bothered then cook the chops about 4 minutes on each side or until no pink juices remain. Remove to a plate and let rest. 

And I'm an idiot forgetting to take a pic of the chops on the stove! 

I served with potatoes and grilled zucchini ribbons. 

And here was how easy that was! Get a bag of steamable fingerling potatoes. Nuke for the 9 minutes it says on the bag. When cooled off a bit, rough chop them and then rough chop an onion. Throw it all in the pan you just cooked the chops in. Season well with salt & pepper. OMG, so good! 



The zucchini was a snap as well. I used a mandolin to slice up the zucchini so they were all the same thickness. I nuked a little butter mixed with lemon juice and parsley and brushed it on the zucchini as I grilled it on my indoor grill. 

Boom! Bam! Done! 




Aren't they beautiful? 

Enjoy!!!!
