Porc de Licious (see what I did there)? Don’t mind if I do!
Sounds French right? Yea, it’s really not. Sorry, fellas.
However, this is one of those, “I am so hungry I could eat a cow” recipes. And if it sounds weird, don’t shy away. Just try it!
Potatoes are involved which adds a lot of stomach expanding depth to the meal. But there is always room in the bottomless pit, also known as my stomach. It’s easy, delicious, hence the name, filling and they are damn hard to share. It’s meat!
Let’s get this party started!
Note: Got a date? Let’s just hope that if that is the situation, she’s a vegetarian. In that case, add a bowl of granola to the table spread (always keep some handy in case of emergency), hope for the best and chow down. To play it safe, avoid eye contact until your plate is clean, and hurry!
Prep/Cook Time: 25 min.
2 pork chops (bone in)
Half cup of Tzatziki sauce
2 regular potatoes (sliced into circular medallions)
1 medium sized white onion (cut small or sliced into half circles)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Olive oil (for onions)
Margarine (for potatoes and chops)
Half of a Red Chili Pepper (cut small if desired for a little kick)
Paprika (if desired, but not a must)
-Heat a little butter or margarine in a pan and throw in your potatoes.
-Salt and pepper your potatoes to taste and stir often so they don’t burn but become golden.
-Cook potatoes for about 10-12 minutes (or until desired doneness. Some like them a little crispier than others).
-Heat another pan on medium heat.
-Throw a tablespoon of margarine in and let it melt.
-Put your chops in the pan, salt, pepper and paprika to taste, and cook about 3-4 minutes each side.
-After your potatoes are finished, remove from the pan and sit to the side and start sautéing your onions with a tablespoon of olive oil.
-Add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and your diced red chili pepper (if desired) to your onions half way through. (About 3 minutes) Cook for another 2-3 minutes while stirring often.
-When your onions are just about done, throw the potatoes back in the pan with them and stir it all together.
-Take your Tzatziki sauce and smear it on your plate as a base.
-Plate your cooked pork chops and top with your potatoes and sautéed onions.
Now eat it!!
This is a good hearty, filling meal that will be sure to fill you. The Tzatziki adds a nice creamy texture and compliments the grilled flavoring of the chops when the two fuse together.
And remember… This is Bachelor Pad Recipes where serving size is a suggestion and pretty much doesn’t exist.
