Ready? Let’s dive in.
Roasted Brussels Let’sts
These little cabbage-like veggies pack a lot of flavors when roasted just right! To get started, all you need is some butter or olive oil, salt & pepper, and possibly some garlic powder, depending on your preference. Place all onto your roasting pan and pop into an oven at 425°F (approximately 218°C ).
Of course, keep an eye out, so it doesn’t burn but give it about 2doesn’tes before turning off the heat – doneness is up to personal taste! Enjoy as a side for your pork chop meal!
Baked Sweet Potatoes
If you want something sweet with your savory pork chops, look no further than baked sweet potatoes! You can use either regular or sweet potatoes – the difference being sweetness, obviously – so it all comes down to your preference.
Prepare by slicing potatoes into cubes (the smaller they are, the faster they cook), then place onto a baking tray drizzled with olive oil + seasonings of your choice before popping them into an oven at 375°F (190°C).
It should take approximately 30-35 minutes depending on the size/amount of potato used – if unsure, poke one cube and check softness inside – done when soft throughout slice/cube! Serve warm + enjoy as part of your beef chop meal!
Fresh Tomato & Cucumber Salad
This is one of my favorite go-to recipes because not only is it easy, but also delicious! Any tomatoes will do – cherry tomatoes are ideal for this but feel free to use small romas or any other type preferred too.
Start by washing tomatoes; cutting them into quarters, then slicing cucumbers; adding both into the same salad bowl; topping off with fresh herbs like basil (dried oregano works too) – dress as desired.
Though, I recommend extra virgin olive oil + red wine vinegar OR just balsamic glaze for sweetness plus a good pinch of sea salt + black pepper – leave aside while prepping other ingredients, then dig in when ready! Yum 😉
Mushrooms add such wonderful flavor & texture experience, which makes them the perfect support ingredient alongside whatever else may be served at dinner time.
Start by washing mushrooms well – remove mushroom ‘stalks if desired’ or clean each fully instead; heat a skillet over medium heat before adding a few tablespoons olive oil; add mushrooms to pan & turn the heat up briefly before reducing back down – frequently stir until mushrooms have turned golden brown/darker color; sprinkle some dried thyme/seasonings if desired; let cool briefly before serving alongside pork chops… yum!!
Lemony Green Beans
Are you doing something special for date night, perhaps? Look no further than these easy yet elegant lemony green beans!
All that’s needed are freshly trimmed beans plus fresh lemon slices. Heat a large saucepan on stove top over medium heat before adding a few tablespoons of butter or extra virgin coconut oil if preferred – once melted, add green beans, then fry until lightly browned around the edges; peel lemon slices+add them into pot finally before seasoning with small dash black papper& pinch sea salt.
Cover pan+let cook a few more minutes until tender yet slightly firm before removing lid+serving warmly alongside the main ingredient… deliciously rewarding, especially for two diners 😉
