Pork chops are always popular, especially this time of year when you have the grill lit! Pork is now much leaner and is much better for us than it once was in the past. This has enabled pork to be more flavorful and more enjoyable. Some years ago, pork was labeled as "the other white meat".
Pork chops are always a hit, so I'm passing along the ingredients for "Pork Chops Supreme". This is a very easy recipe that can be prepared to serve any number......from two to a large crowd! It's perfect to make for a simple dinner according to the number that you're planning to serve. This is a recipe you will want to have in your files, for you'll likely refer to many times over!
To begin with, you trim any excess fat from the chops and place in a baking dish. Each chop is topped with a thin slice of lemon and onion. Then, the chops are topped with some brown sugar and some ketchup. The dish is covered and is baked for 1 hour. The dish is uncovered and baked for 30 more minutes. That's the recipe! This can be served with rice, along with a green vegetable and a bread and this will take charge of dinner quickly and easily!
When choosing pork chops, I always like to choose the ones that are boneless. These are usually more expensive, but you won't have the extra fat or bone that will end up being thrown out, plus you'll get more meat per serving. Pork chops are put on sale often in the grocery store, so this can be very economical, as well.
I mentioned a green vegetable being good to have with these chops. About two years ago, I shared a recipe for "Three Bean Salad" that can be served hot or cold and it would go well with this dish. To get the recipe, follow this link:
For a fast and easy main dish that goes together fast, remember this recipe:
