Easy and Yummy Pork Chop with Onion Gravy and Green Beans
My girls loves eating steak, and as much as I want to give them what they want, I have to admit that buying a good quality of beef perfect for steak is rather EXPENSIVE! So my cheat-sheet when steak is requested for dinner is to whip-up this pan seared pork instead. Not as expensive, but definitely still yummy, juicy and easy to make.
By the way, once you perfect this dish, forget about ordering from a restaurant. This recipe will surely be an instant fave in your kitchen. Here’s a recipe to serve 4.
4 pcs. Pork Chop with Skin (1 inch thick)
Ground Black Pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
½ cup whole milk
1 medium size onion (sliced)
Butter 3 tablespoon
2 tablespoon flour + ¼ cup water (mixed thoroughly)
¼ String beans
1 tablespoon butter
Salt to taste
1. Make sure the meat is at room temperature. I’m using an inch thick meat for this recipe. Pat it dry then cut the skin part so the meat doesn’t curl when cooked.
2. Sprinkle rock salts and freshly crushed black pepers on each side.
Using a pan/iron skillet, turn to high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the extra virgin olive oil, then pork chop.
3. Cook the meat for 3 minutes or til brown and flip the other side. Then add the garlic, butter and baste the meat with the oil to keep it moist.
4. Remove the meat from the pan, and remove the used oil and garlic.
5. Saute the onion, peel off the used garlic then toss it back to the pan. Continue to sauté until the onion is translucent.
6. Add 1 cup of water and beef stock cubes. Continue to stir until the stock cube is thoroughly dissolved.
7. Then place the pork meat again, continue to cook for 5 minutes (2.5 minutes on each side). Then remove the pork and set aside.
8. Add ½ cup of water, then crush the garlic to smaller pieces for that maximum garlicky flavor. Add the milk, stir. Then add the butter to give it that silky smoothness. Once fully mixed, add the flour and water mixture. Stir ‘til thick.
9. Serve and enjoy.
Buttered Green Beans:
1. Boil 1/2 liter of water. Once boiling, toss in the beans.
2. Cook for 2 minutes over medium heat. Remove water and add 2 tablespoon of butter. Mix until the beans are fully coated. Serve!
