My first pin! I decided that this would be a neat thing to blog…pins I’ve actually finished! This first pin and the next are going to be pretty bare bones since I came up with the idea after the fact, but look forward to more in depth posts about pins I’ve completed.
The first pin I completed was a recipe for Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops. This recipe comes from a blog called Rock Recipes. It all started with me trying to find a recipe on Pinterest for pork because I had some pork chops sitting in the fridge that needed to be used ASAP. So I search for “pork recipes” and a bunch of pins with the name Michael came up…nothing for pork! – no idea what that’s about. So instead I tried googling “pork recipes pinterest” and a bunch of recipes came up!! (So FYI, if you ever search for pins and the only result you get is Michael, trying googling!) This was one of the first recipes, had a ton of pins, and sounded delicious.
This recipe was fairly easy. Mix your spices and flour, mix your egg wash, salt & pepper the pork (I used boneless pork loin chops), dip in flour mixture – dip in egg wash – dip back in flour. Two tips….make sure you don’t put too much oil in your pan (I did) and also use a non-stick pan if possible. I used my stainless pan simply because it was bigger and I wanted to fit them all in at the same time and they of course kept sticking (even though I had too much oil! lol) I cooked the pork chops for 5 minutes on each side – with the heat set at about 4 1/2. They came out nice and juicy! As for the sauce you dip the pork chops in afterwards – I used agave nectar instead of honey, low sodium soy sauce, and a little bit of orange juice.
This is not the healthiest recipe, but it was definitely delicious! Will be great for an every now and again dinner.
