I had to muck about with the base recipe a bit (I used pineapple and skipped most of the vegetables, really*), but the basic premise was sound: half-cook pan-fry the pork chops, pull them off the pan, fill it with the coconut milk and pineapple, let that cook down for a minute, then reintroduce the pork chops and braise ’em until they cook. It turned out OK! And it wasn’t too difficult or long to cook, either.
*My wife’s apparently allergic to garlic now. Yes, she wasn’t happy about that, either.
Since we’re all apparently in a cooking conversation sort of mood, anyway. I was going to just do a little bit of an organized salt/pepper/fresh rosemary kind of rub, but I am open to suggestions. We’re going to be eating a lot of pork chops this week — buy one, get two free — so variety would be a good idea on general principles.
Aside from broiling them, or braising them in a mixture of olive/roasted pepper juice. The latter actually doesn’t sound too bad; but I’ve got two sets of boneless pork chops to cook, and obviously only one creative idea.
Suggestions (obviously) welcome. Assume that I have a mundane, but reasonably full, pantry.
It’s not like Yankees fans are bad, or anything. There was no malice in that, and how could you expect one to resist the temptation of a pork chop? On a STICK? It’s just that events like these reinforce the rule of thumb about Yankees fans that you always need to have a qualified Yankee Fan Wrangler within line of sight of one. Yankees fans don’t mind, I’m sure: I expect that it’s a relief for them to know one’s there, really…
PS: Well, yes, I was a Mets fan growing up. What does that have to do with anything?
