Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 12 ounces of small red potatoes (halved)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 2 boneless pork chops (¾ to 1 inch thick)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. In a large bowl generously season the potatoes with salt and pepper; toss in the olive oil to coat.
  3. Place potatoes cut side down in a rimmed baking sheet covered with aluminum foil – the potatoes should take up about ½ of the pan. Place on center rack of the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until just tender. (baking time could be a little longer depending on the size of the potatoes.)
  4. While potatoes are baking place the bacon on a large plate and weigh the bacon down using another plate – microwave for 3 minutes or until bacon starts to shrivel. (limp but not stiff) place bacon on paper towels to let cool.
  5. Wrap pork chops with 3 strips of bacon with ends down to secure the bacon.
  6. Remove the potatoes from the oven and place the pork chops on the other half of the sheet. Return to oven and bake until pork chops reach an internal temperature of 135F. (about 15 minutes depending on size)
  7. Preheat the broiler and place the pork and potatoes about 6 inches from the broiler element. Broil until bacon is browned and crispy and chops register 145F. Tent with aluminum foil and let rest 5 minute before serving.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425F.
  2. Line a large baking pan with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. (I used a broiler pan and it worked out fine)
  3. In a shallow microwavable dish whisk together the panko bread crumbs and olive oil; salt and pepper to taste. Microwave the crumbs, stirring constantly, until breadcrumbs are nicely browned. (watch this closely because microwave heats seem to very a lot). After crumbs have cooled mix in the Parmesan cheese.

  10. Bake until chops are 145F and squash is golden brown and tender. (about 25 min depending on thickness)

A simple recipe. This Asian Pork Chop recipe has a unique blend of flavors. My first thought when I saw the recipe called for honey-was sweet and sour pork. It is not even close. It has a flavor all its own. It is just delicious and very simple to prepare. Serve with mashed potatoes and use the left over juice to make a great tasting gravy. Your Family or Guests will love it. I hope you enjoy.
