Roasted Chops-n-Taters

We've roasted garlic, we've roasted peppers, now it's time to roast some meat...pork that is!

Roasted Chops-N-Taters -
Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Heat 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large oven safe skillet, over medium-high heat.
Season 4 bone-in center but pork chops with Pork Seasoning and a healthy pinch of cayenne pepper.

Place chops in the skillet and cook for 3 minutes on each side. Place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes and serve over pan sauteed potatoes below:

Heat 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large pan or pot. Cook three slices of diced smokey bacon until fat is rendered. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of fat from pan.

Add 1/2 cup chicken broth,
1/3 cup sherry
(Optional - one handful of sliced baby bella mushrooms)
2 scallions, sliced and 4 russett potatoes, thinly sliced. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook until fork tender.

See how quick and easy that was? Now you have time to take a nice evening stroll, practice your yoga or run to the store for some Ben and Jerry's! Go forth and cook!
