"A porkchop in the kitchen is a porkchop; a porkchop in Proust is Proust."
-William Gaso, Author

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a fabulous dish and so very easy. Mix the ingredients, marinate the pork, sear, deglaze and make the sauce. Simple. Served over Yam Fries or Mashed Yams, this is a nearly perfect meal.

Honey and Allergies

For a long time people have thought that eating local honey would help with allergies.  Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear that this is the case.  

There is a beautifully designed study performed by Dr. T.V. Rajan at the University of Connecticut where participants ate either local non-filtered honey, pasteurized honey or corn syrup with honey flavor.  Ten different allergy symptoms were measured.  There were no differences between the two groups that ate the honey and the group eating the placebo honey.

2 tsp olive oil
1 lime (juiced)
2 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp curry powder
1/4 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)
spray olive oil
2 4 ounce center cut pork chops
1/4 cup low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
2 tsp butter

Mix together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, curry powder, salt and pepper in a stainless steel or glass bowl. Add the pork chops and turn them to coat well with the marinade. Place in the refrigerator and let the pork marinate at least 30 minutes. Turn the pork about every 10 – 15 minutes.

Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat the oven to 375°F.

When the oven is hot, spray the pan lightly with olive oil. Add the pork chops. Reserve the marinade.

Cook the pork chops on the first side for about 7 – 10 minutes and then turn. Cook for another 7 – 10 minutes until the chops’ internal temperature is at 145°F.

Remove the pan and set it on the stove over medium-high heat. Set the pork chops on a cutting board or plate to rest.

Add the remaining marinade and the chicken stock to the pan. Deglaze the pan by scraping the bottom gently with a wooden spatula. Let the liquid come to a slow boil and reduce the sauce until there is about 1/4 cup. Add the butter, and when it is melted, divide the sauce evenly over the pork chops and serve.
