I very rarely cook pork. I love bacon and eggs and manage to do okay making sure the bacon is crisp but really, pork in any form was not something I grew up with or really knew how to cook. One could say I had FOP. It took many hours of scanning food blogs to get me to even try it.
How hard could it be? Everyone says it's a breeze to cook. I tried it - it was - the jury is still out on whether or not it'll become a staple in my diet.
2 pork chops
salt and pepper to season
Mrs. Dash (a collective of spices in one bottle - sodium free)
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup sliced mixed mushroom
1/2 cup chicken broth
scant balsamic vinegar
Bring olive oil to heat in an oven proof skillet. Add pork chops.
Add mushrooms. Cook pork chops approximately 5 minutes per side and then place in 350 F oven to heat through - about 10 more minutes
Pretty darned simple if you ask me.
According to everything I've read - I probably cooked them a little longer than most recipes call for. They were done well for me, moist and tender. I think I've conquered my FOP.
