The fifty-first recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Pork Chops with Pears in Port Wine Sauce, and can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 115. The theme for this week was chosen by Gaye: Get Some Pork on Your Fork.
Ingredient list: pears, pork chops, salt, pepper, chicken broth, port wine, and Dijon mustard.
Mark is our resident pork eater here so he was happy to hear that Gaye had selected a pork recipe for the theme this week, I don't make pork near enough in his opinion. This was all simple, cook the pears, cook the pork chops in a separate pan (so you are in this for two skillets but that's not too bad in the scheme of things), then transfer pork to hold on a plate while you make the sauce to join them all together in a happy way on the plate for serving. This satisfied the pork lover here and I thought it was quite nice myself, the mustard and wine sauce is delicious, easy, fast, and full of a spicy full flavor. Definitely a repeat.
