Summer has turned out to be hot, hot and more hot.
Most everyone already knows that.
What I love to do on those hot summer nights is to have something that is quick and tasty, but contributes a minimum to heating the kitchen. I have even resorted to using the crock pot on the veranda for summertime cooking.
Pork Loin chops were beautiful today at the grocer. I had to get them and this little recipe turned out so good served with steamed asparagus and Cheese Grits.
@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format
Pork Chops Braised With Cider Vinegar
1 tb canola oil
4 center-cut loin pork chops; 1 inch thick
1 medium red onion; peeled, sliced lengthwise
2 garlic cloves; minced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tb hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon honey
salt and pepper; to taste
Pour oil into a 10- to 12-inch nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat.
When hot, add pork chops and cook, turning once, until browned on both
sides, about 4 minutes total. Transfer to a plate. Add onion and garlic to
pan. Stir frequently until onion is limp, about 5 minutes.
Stir in vinegar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, and honey, and return pork chops
to pan. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer until pork chops are barely pink in
the center (cut to test), 3 to 5 more minutes.
Place each pork chop on a plate and top equally with onion mixture. Add
salt and pepper to taste.
Yield: 4 servings
