Notice the “Drunken” theme lately? My birthday was early last month and I received LOTS of alcohol in all different forms for my birthday. So, wine in The Drunken Noodles (click for link to post) the other night and beer in the Drunken Pork Chops last night. I don’t drink much so expect to see lots of cooking with alcohol over the next few months!
Pork chops were the sale of the week so I bought 20 pounds of pork chops. They have the bone in them but they were a nice thick cut for $1.69 a pound. It is summer time and we are doing LOTS of traveling so I am trying to keep the food budget down. This month alone we are traveling every weekend to dance competitions, blogging conferences, or a concert. Lots of great stuff but we need to keep the budget in line to be able to do all these things.
My family really liked this dish. I was a bit skeptical but they all devoured the pork chops. Even my pork hating spouse said that these were really good because the pork was well cooked but not dry and had a good taste. Win for me!
I served this with mashed potatoes and a green salad to complete the meal.
