As I was browsing my blog for my good old standard broiled pork chops recipe so I wouldn’t have to retype it for this one I realized it’s not here! How could I have overlooked the old standby? I made it along with some cauliflower I found at the grocery store that was the most gorgeous buttery yellow color and some fresh organic greens and sweet potato from my favorite vendor at the St. Augustine farmers market last weekend.
Broiled Pork Chop
3 organic, humanely raised pork chops
1/2 cup whole wheat breadcrumb
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp skim milk
Tony Chachere’s Cajun Seasoning (or garlic salt and pepper), to taste
Organic canola baking spray
1. Preheat the broiler to high then set your breading station up.
Dish 1: Pork chops, rinsed and patted dry then sprinkled with Cajun seasoning
Dish 2: beat the egg and milk together
Dish 3: pour your bread crumb
Baking Pan (covered in foil and sprayed with cooking spray)
2. Dip first pork chop in dish 1, turn to coat, dish 2, turn to coat, shake excess, place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining two.
3. Spray tops with canola spray and broil 5 to 7 minutes depending on the size of the pork chop. They should be just beginning to brown. Turn once and broil and additional 5 to 7 minutes.
1 large head of yellow (or white) cauliflower, chopped and steamed 20 minutes
4 Tbsp light cream cheese
Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning (or garlic salt and pepper), to taste
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup organic, free range chicken broth (enough to get the consistency you want)
1. Blend everything together in a food processor.
Sweet Potato Chips
1 organic sweet potato
Organic canola cooking spray
Garlic salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
1. Preheat broiler to high.
2. Slice potato as thinly as possible.
3. Lay each piece in a single layer on a baking sheet sprayed with canola oil. Sprinkle potatoes with garlic salt and pepper, then spray canola cooking spray.
4. Broil (along with pork chops) 5 to 7 minutes or until beginning to brown. Turn once and broil an additional 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp.
(I didn’t get many of these because my hubby and daughter stole them all. At least I got two for the photo!)
