Hello Mr. Piggy

One of the things I usually don’t buy is pork, since at least all the pork I’ve seen has as the highest rating just “organic”, and just like several sources have pointed out, that can be a bit misleading (or flat out hiding other problems) I’ve never felt that comfortable buying it. However, every once in a while a change of food in the menu is in order, so I decided to do it this week.

Pork chops are probably not the cheapest cut, but they are quite easy to make. In this case, I rubbed both sides with salt and pepper, and fried them in coconut oil until both sides were seared, and they had started to cook inside.

When cooked (but not done), I removed them from the fire, and in the mixture of grease that was rendered and coconut oil I fried onions and mushrooms.

Then with some sour cream the mushrooms morphed into a creamy thick sauce.

When thick and rich I put the chops back in place. Since they were already salted I didn’t add salt to the sauce, but you can do that while it’s thickening if you think it’s lacking flavor. I let them boil in a low fire until the meat was done.
