Oven Roasted Pork Chops with Veggies and Pan Sauce


Ingredients for Pork Chops:

  • 4 pork chops
  • About a teaspoon of salt 
  • All purpose seasoning (Adobo)*
  • Seasoning (Sazón)*
  • White Vinegar
  • Parsley
  • Seven half stripes of bacon
  • Frozen mixed veggies
  • Thinly chopped 1/4 onion
  • Thinly chopped half pepper 
* You might want to check the Ethnic section of your Supermarket for these two.

Steps:
  1. On a cooking pot with colander, bring the veggies to a boil.
  2. On a frying pan, set the bacon stripes to fry them. Cook until very crispy.
  3. Once the bacon stripes are cooked remove 'em from frying pan but keep the fat.
  4. Then, you obviously need to defrost the pork chops ;)
  5. Pre heat oven at 450°F or 232°C
  6. Coat your baking pan with just a little bit of non-stick cooking spray
  7. Rest all four pork chops on your baking pan 
  8. Season the pork chops: Add salt and then with a fork, flip 'em over to add the Adobo, then flip again to add the Sazón, flip again add white vinegar and flip for the last time to add parsley to taste.
  9. Drain the veggies and lay them on top of your beautifully seasoned pork chops
  10. Cover your baking pan with aluminum foil (the reason to do this is so that your Pork Chops don't dry too much)
  11. Put it in the oven for about 30 minutes.
  12. After those 30 minutes, remove from oven, flip the pork chops and return them to the oven for 30 more minutes.
  13. Voila, turn off the oven but let the baking pan sit there while we get to our Pan Sauce.
Ingredients for Pan Sauce:
  • Bacon fat
  • 1 teaspoon oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup of cooking Whine
  • Pomegranate vinegar
Steps:
  1. Add half of the oregano leaves to the same pan that you fried the bacon
  2. Whisk 
  3. Pour the wine and add some drops of the pomegranate vinegar 
  4. Whisk
  5. Add the rest of the oregano leaves
  6. Whisk everything into perfection
  7. Add the already fried bacon stripes.
  8. Remove from heat.
When serving, add just a little bit of the pan sauce to each pork chops, doesn't need much the taste is amazing. Serve with green salad.


¡Buen Provecho!
