After a week of fresh seafood, I really wanted some pork. We traveled back with some leftover oranges that I needed to use up as well. Grabbed the bottle of brandy and figured I could make something work.
After a quick defrost, I grabbed my ingredients. Bottle of brandy, two oranges, some garlic, honey, cumin, and S & P.
I salted and peppered the chops and then generously covered with cumin.
I then poured a quarter cup of brandy, squeezed the juice from the oranges, and added about a tablespoon of honey.
Zested the orange peel a bit and chopped up three cloves of garlic to toss into the brew.
Now, you can do two different things. Toss this on the pork chops and marinade for a few hours before hitting the grill. Or when you don't have the opportunity to grill, toss the chops into the crock pot and pour the mixture over the chops.
I did crock pot today. Out of gas on the grill...story of my life.
Cooked them for about 4 hours on low.
I threw together mashed potatoes, cauliflower and carrots to eat with the chops. Fooled the kids right into eating this slightly more healthy version of mashed taters.
No leftovers means good meal right?
What's on your plate this week? Anything good and meaty?
