A Quick Supper

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.

Yum! It looks great! I had loin pork chops last night and wish I had waited until this evening, after seeing this. It's 100 degrees now and it will be BELT's tonight for dinner. BLT's with a fried egg. We are not used to this weather day after day up here; it's weather for down your way! Good idea with the crock pot, I've never thought of using that in the summer. Thanks for the chop recipe! I like the mix of ingredients!

Your pork chops sound very tasty with the apple cider vinegar and hoisin sauce. For me, everything is better with a few cheese grits.

Have a great week Mr. Bill.

Those look and sound incredibly delicious! Most people associate crockpots with winter but they do come in handy at this time of the year.
