Pork chops were on sale and I was looking for a nice way to present them to my family.
You will need 1 pork chop per person, about 1”thick
2 large garlic bundles (peel the garlic but leave them whole)
Assorted Vegetables, I used squash and broccoli
1 can cream of mushroom soup with garlic (Any Cream of Soup would do)
A rub for the meat or salt and pepper to taste.
1 large sweet onion
2 pats of butter
Several small potatoes chopped
Salt and pepper
Green onion to garnish the plate with
Take the rub and slather all over the Pork chops, I used left over rub from the Ribs I made previously. Set them aside.
Take an oven safe bowl and add the garlic and oil; bake at 400 degrees until the garlic is soft (about 15 minutes)
chop the onion up into large pieces and cook in butter until caramelized.
Add the vegetables to the mixture and sauté until soft but still slightly firm.
Make your demi glaze
Start cooking the meat when the vegetables are soft. I cooked my pork chops on the George Foreman Grill. Easy quick and can be cooked at the end of the preparation.
Add italian dressing about a quarter cup to the vegetable mixture and simmer.
Add the soup to the vegetable mix and stir until covered.
I put the potatoes in a steamer bag with some oil and salt and pepper and steamed them. About ten minutes in the microwave on high.
Remove the garlic from the oil and add to the glaze
Reserve the oil now flavored with garlic and save for later use or make the following;
I had a baguette that was getting hard, so I cut it up, added the garlic oil to the bread and some cheese and baked at 350 for ten minutes (ovens vary watch they don’t burn)
There you have it, Serve the Pork with the demi glaze and make your family happy!
