Some days you cook the awesome. Some days you don’t.
However, one of my last meals was the awesome (at least to me).
So far, and I emphasize “so far”, we’ve found Michelle’s recipes the yummiest and easiest in our paleo alternate reality.
But on to the recipe, you say.
How does this meal sound? Skillet fried pork chops smothered in chopped bacon bits and onion and apple slices?
Yumtacular (at least to me).
The verdict from oompa and loompa?
Good, not great. The pork chops themselves were not a hit, but the sauce, oh the sauce. If you look at the recipe you will see that the sauce calls for drippings from bacon bits, bone both or chicken stock, fish sauce, and arrowroot powder.
But that’s not all. Oh no, that’s not all.
Into the sauce you throw the seared pork chops and onion and apple sauces. The concoction then simmers for half an hour.
At the end, when you taste the gravy, unseen Angels will weep on your shoulders at their inability to be part of your personal heaven.
Our only revision is to try chicken instead of pork. I loved the pork and pork fat. Munched it up. But the pork was not as popular with the rest of the crew.
What’s your biggest cooking success?
