Back to Cooking

Good Morning!  I am trying to get my butt back on the ban wagon and start cooking dinner more.  We have got into a horrible rut of going out for dinner.  I took the bull by the horns and made a weekly meal plan for this coming week -- including all NEW recipes!  Very excited to try them and share them with all of you.

First up ~ dinner from Sunday ~ Portobello Pork Chops (found on The Recipe Review blog via the Pork Board).  This was VERY easy to make.  A very small handful of ingredients.  It made the house smell wonderful while being cooked and I was hoping it would live up to the smell.  One bite later, my wonderful finace decleared this recipe was a keeper! 

Portobello Pork Chops
4 bone-in pork rib or loin chops, 3/4 inch
1-1/2 cups mild chunky salsa
1 cup chopped Portobello mushrooms
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Trim fat from chops.  Spoon salsa into a retangular baking dish.  Arrange chops on top of salsa.  Combine Portobello mushrooms, cheddar cheese and maple syrup om a medium bowl.  Spoon over chops.  Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 25 minutes.  Sprinkle with parsley.  Serve chops with salsa mixture.
