  1. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Brown with Brown. Brown is good! I was going to make a salad to go with but my other half said Pork Chops and Roasted Potatoes were enough, soooo who am I to argue! ~ Pork Chops Sous Vide - one hour at 140F, then grill seared.

  10. Best Fast Food Burger

    We have a Freddy’s Opening Soon, just down the highway. Their food sounds very much like the Steak ‘n Shake my husband and I loved and grew up with in St. Louis.

  12. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Thanks ElsieD! This is one of our long time favorites. I have recently adapted the recipe to the Instant Pot. When I use the Instant Pot, I deglaze the pot with the sauce mix after sautéing the onions and garlic and before returning the pork to the pot. I use Manual, High Pressure for 8 minutes and Natural Release for 20 minutes. Mexican-Style Pork Chops Adapted from recipe in Texas On The Halfshell from Texas Dept. of Agriculture Yield: 2 servings Ingredients: - 2 Bone-in Pork Chops (or Pork Butt Steak) - 1/4 teaspoon salt - 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper - 1/4 cup all-purpose flour - 2 tablespoons vegetable oil - 1 cup onion, sliced - 1 clove garlic, minced - 1/3 cup Heinz chili sauce - 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce - 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar - 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar - 3/4 cups boiling water Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375℉. 2. Trim excess fat from pork. Season with salt and pepper; then dredge in flour, shaking off excess. 3. Heat oil in preheated cast iron or other oven-proof skillet and brown pork. 4. Remove pork from skillet and keep warm. 5. Add onion to skillet; cook about 5 minutes. Then add garlic and cook for about a minute, do not let burn. 6. Return pork and any juices to skillet. Remove skillet from heat. 7. Mix chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and boiling water in 2 cup measure. Add to skillet and cover with foil. 8. Bake pork for 40 minutes. 9. Remove cover and bake another 10 minutes.

    Sous Vide Lamb Loin Chops with Pan Sauce and Green Beans
  16. Chefsteps recipe (https://www.chefsteps.com/activities/tender-juicy-sous-vide-lamb-chops) was my guide for these Bone-in Lamb Loin Chops I did the following: froze the chops for 30 minutes, then seasoned with salt and pepper and preseared, toasting the aromatics (rosemary and garlic), bagged the chops with additional olive oil and the aromatics, used my Anova at 138F for 1 hour and 45 minutes, did a final sear on the chops after patting dry, and served with a pan sauce and green beans.

    Tonkatsu with Roasted Asparagus and Sushi Rice Seasoned with Nanami Togarashi
  20. During the week, my husband doesn’t usually get home from work before 6pm. He usually eats light at breakfast and lunch, so is hungry and ready for his main meal of the day at dinner. I try to have dinner ready at around 7:00. This gives him time to have a drink and relax before we eat. On the weekends, it just depends on what we are doing, sometimes early, sometimes late, sometimes just snacking.
