Comfort food after a long day.
Carpets are shampooed. Grocery shopping is done. Halloween costume #1 is cut out and about half way done. Have I mentioned how much I don't like Halloween? Laundry is done. More resumes sent out. House is vacuumed and cleaned. Since it was Wednesday and Christopher wouldn't be home I decided to have dinner early and get the kitchen cleaned up. I fed the girls at 5:00p and by 5:30p I was cleaning off the table. Then Christopher walks in the door. He's confused because we didn't wait for him for diner and I'm confused because I wasn't expecting him home. That's when I realized it was actually Tuesday. Duh!
The pork chops were good but way too salty for me. I don't normally cook or bake with salt and this recipe called for one teaspoon. I was going to cut it in half but at the last moment decided to stick with the original amount. Wrong call.
2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried sage
1 tsp ground black pepper
6 center cut bone-in pork chops
2 tbsp butter
1 cup beef broth
Combine the salt, sage and black pepper in a small bowl and rub on both sides of the chops. Melt the butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat and saute the chops for 5 minutes per side, or until well browned. Add beef broth to the chops, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer chops for 45 minutes.
