It's one of the reasons I like this blog, (Never) Too Many Cooks, so much. I aim to try at least one new recipe per week. And because I post once a week, I aim to try an additional something new at home too.
This week, however, coming off the holidays and all manner of colds and viruses running through the house, I resorted to an old familiar for dinner.
These oven pork chops are a tried and true recipe that comes from a family friend. It is naturally free of gluten and casein. And ridiculously simple.
Oven Pork Chops
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
1/4 cup diced onion
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 cup maple syrup
Brown pork chops in skillet.
Place in baking dish and pour the mixture over the pork chops.
Bake for 45 minutes, covered.
Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes uncovered.
Usually I like to serve this with mashed potatoes, but the few potatoes in my cupboard had started to go soft. So we went with our standard (gluten-free) pasta and a side of peas.
For those of you who don't eat pork, I can't see why this wouldn't work just as well with chicken.
