Pondering Pork

I just don't get it. Pork, I mean. I really really don't understand why people buy it, eat it and then cook it. Blech.

The only pork I've ever liked was a roast I tried a long time ago... slow cooked with an entire jar of sauerkraut dumped on it. Yum. Hubby won't touch that with a ten foot fork. In fact, he ran screaming from the house, tearing madly at his hair, the last time I suggested it.

(sigh)

No, my spouse likes Shake 'n Bake on his pork chops. I'm not kidding. Trust me, I wish I was.

So after much surfing (and head shaking), I came up with something simple, involving olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper, that I think he'll eat and I might be able to choke back.

I let you know how it goes...

I LOVE pork! My favorite meat! I like pork chops barbecued - they taste just like ribs. I also like shake 'n bake cause my mom used to do that. Then - I make chops with onions, rice, and a tomato sauce - made like a casserole. Very moist and tender. But my favorite is a roast - lots of onion and garlic .. yum!!!

I guess I just haven't found the right recipe ;-) Shake 'n Bake isn't thaaat bad - I think I'm just tired of it. It's all Hubby will eat. Your casserole with tomato sauce, onions and rice sounds delish, but that'd be a no-go with The Man. (sigh)
