Some Kind of Concoction

31 Oct

Sometimes the best things to come out of your kitchen had nothing to do with a recipe book, but rather come from the random mix of things you had in your pantry. On this particular evening, we had no idea what we were about to throw together, and frankly didn’t even know if it was going to be any good. Thank goodness this one didn’t suck.

Thrown into the mix:

4 pork chops (bone in or out)

Soy sauce


Cabernet sauvignon

Quarter of a medium-sized onion (chopped)

One green pepper (chopped)

One stalk of green onion/scallions (thin slices)

Two fat cloves of garlic (smash-chopped)

Salt and pepper

One orange (half juiced, half sliced)

One lime (half juiced, half sliced)

Sesame oil

Mix it all up:

Season the chops with salt and pepper, and then marinate the chops in a combination of all the ingredients in a bowl, except for the oil). You need enough of all the liquid ingredients to cover the chops in the pan…I didn’t measure, but I have faith that you can feel it out.

In a large pan, heat the sesame oil on medium, and then dump the marinating chops with all the contents into the pan. Season the mixture with salt and pepper as needed and cover with a lid.

Flip ‘em once and then munch munch munch.
