When I was growing up we lived with my maternal grandparents.Grandma lived to the ripe old age of 89 and would tell me cute little stories about the people in the neighborhood.Farther up the road lived a widow named Sadie.
She had a parrot that would constantly ask,"Pork chops for supper, Sadie"? Well tonight it's... pork chops for supper,Suzy... and here's one of my favorite recipes.
Salt and pepper center cut boneless pork chops.Add a bit of chopped garlic to the top of the chops.I like the chopped garlic in a jar.
Sprinkle with paprika to add color.Heat a frying pan until it's very hot.Do not use any oil unless the chops are very lean.Sear chops over very high heat until lightly browned on each side.Pour 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup water over chops.Cover and reduce heat to low and simmer for about 25 minutes until tender...That's it!
..I usually serve this with roasted yams.Here's how I make them:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon thyme (fresh is best)
salt and ground pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
halve yams,place cut side up in a shallow baking dish,just large enough to hold a single layer.Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with thyme.Season with salt and pepper.
Bake until golden brown and very tender,35 to 45 minutes.Onions can be added for extra flavor.
