Pork Chops For Dinner Tonight.
0

19 posts in this topic

I have pork chops but I don't know what to do with them. I ususally do the shake-n-bake thing - yeah I know it's not that great but it's easy. Now I am gluten-free and dairy free I don't know what to do with pork chops. I searched the message board and found one recipe but I need some others. Any help?

We do chops a lot. One of my favorite ways is to simply salt and grill them. You'd be surprised at how much flavor they have. Another is to use Tone's Canadian Steak seasoning on them and grill, fry, or broil them. The seasoning is both dairy and gluten free. Garlic salt works nice too. If you pan fry them, add some water to the pan after they're done and deglaze it. Add some cornstarch slurry to thicken it and you've got some awesome gravy to go with mashed potatoes. And for those you can use olive oil, garlic salt, italian seasonings, and soy milk, rice milk or chicken broth. I'm getting hungry!

I love our version, very easy. Place a ring of an onion slice on each chop. Throw a dash of salt and pepper on, and a few drops of lemon juice. Put one tbls of brown sugar in each onion ring. Cover the brown sugar w/ ketchup - keeping it all in the onion ring. Bake covered about half the length (depending on how think your chops are) then uncovered for the remaining time.

my MIL taught me this for pork chops

lay in pan, drizzle olive oil over pork chops, sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and italian seasonings then squirt some lemon juice all over them... bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, flip the chops, season again (omit oil this time) and cook til done (usually 20-25 more minutes) very easy and delish.

I just thought of another one we jused to do all the time.

slice a few potatoes thinly on the bottom of a casserole dish. Salt and pepper them. Place thinkly sliced onions on top of that. Lay chops on top, salt and pepper again. Pour a can of Progresso cream of mushroom soup on top ( or other gluten free com soup). Bake for about 45 mins or until done. Really good.

I just discovered these recipes from the VH site:

http://www.vhsauces.com/index.php?cPath=21&language=en

I e-mailed ConAgra Foods Canada Inc. yesturday, and they said that all of their VH sauces are gluten free except the teriyaki. They also said that they will clearly indicate wheat in their ingredient lists and to always check for changes in their ingredients. Here are some pork chop recipes that I found:

I'll preface this by saying I hate porkchops, but made this way it was ok.

My mom always crushed cornflakes and seasoned them with garlic salt and lemon pepper and then baked them. Almost as easy as shake n bake and just as good, if not better. Just use gluten-free cornflakes!

Put McCormick Broiled Steak Seasoning on both sides of chops, then pan fry in a touch of oil, flip over and fry other side.

My hubby LOVES pork chops. Last time I made them, sprinkled them with olive oil, salt and pepper and then made a glaze (just mix) of honey and chipotle pepper. Threw in oven at 350 for 20 or so minutes- spicy sweet and juicy. I even like them!

Man, thanks for all of the responses. I didn't make them tonight b/c I was too lazy but I will give them a try later this week. Some of them sounded really good.

Our favorite way is to place the chops in a baking dish, pour a large can of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed over them, place apple slices over them and bake 30-35 minutes.

I know this is an old post but I just now saw it. When I have made them, I did them the way my mom used to before she discovered Shake N'Bake. I didn't like that stuff at all. Anyway... I just put salt and pepper on them and put them in a pan with a little oil. 20 minutes on each side. Serve with applesauce and some kind of starch like potatoes or rice. Everyone seems to like them this way.

Put chops in an oven-safe pot or casserole, dump on a can or two of sauerkraut, put lid on, bake at 400 F for 1 hour. Serve with mashed potatoes. Can also do this in the crockpot and use other cuts of pork.

This is an old post but definitely worth revisiting!

I marinate them for about 1 hour in Lea & Perrins worcheshire sauce ( gluten-free in US), minced garlic & black pepper. Grill.

I love to brine chops first - it makes them extremely succulent. My favourite brine includes vanilla beans and juniper berries. Then I like to sear and finish off in the oven and make a pan sauce or mushroom duxelles or finish with a pomegranate, blueberry, red currant or fig glaze. I also make about 30 kinds of rubs (wet and dry). Stuffing double chops with reconstituted apricots in Port or sherry, toasted walnuts, herbs, etc. is lovely as well. I also make a mean roasted applesauce to serve with chops. In the summer we normally grill (after brining) and finish with a reduction, glaze or gastrique (i.e. sour cherry or lemongrass).

Grinding porcini (or other) mushrooms in my spice grinder along with cacao nibs and toasted dried chile peppers makes a wonderful rub as well.

Oh, and don't even get me started on all the marinades I make (probably 50 kinds)...

What to do with pork chops:

1. If you have chops that are thin to medium thin [1/2 to 3/4 inches thick] you'll want to get as much of the silverskin off as possible. Silverskin is the layer of fat around the outside of the chop. Leave a very thin layer for flavor and make perpendicular cuts through the remaining fat down to the actual meat, repeating about every 2 inches around the perimeter of the chop. This will reduce the cupping effect that happens when the fat layer shrinks during cooking. This is especially important if you are cooking boneless chops.

2. A simple sear is the easiest way to cook them. Start with a little oil in a skillet and get it to just below the smoke point. Season the chops as desired and lay them about an inch or so apart in the heated oil. Flip them after about 5 minutes. Cook until the juices run just clear when pierced, or to 160 on a cooking thermometer. [N.b.-- the USDA has recently reduced the recommended temp from 160 to 145, but that still seems a little underdone to me]. You can also find numerous recipes online for various methods of glazing the chops at the end. One favorite of mine is a raspberry jam/hoisin sauce combo, and another is to mix a little honey and mustard together, which also works really well with chicken breasts.

3. The best way to get gravy is to braise them-- brown them lightly on both sides, toss a chopped onion over the top, add about 1 to 1 1/2 cups of stock to the pan, bring to a light boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for about 15 minutes. Remove the meat, add about 2 tbs butter to the braising liquid, and then stir in about 2-3 tbs corn starch [VERY IMPORTANT: premix the corn starch in a little COLD water first] and simmer until thickened as desired, stirring frequently.

4. There are myriad other ways of dealing with chops:

a. slice them thinly and stir fry with an onion and other veggies of your choice [though spring onions are rather de riguer with pork]

b. Slow cook them with tomato sauce and bechamel [approximately equivalent to a can of tomato soup] and an undrained can of mushrooms. Works better with bone-in, thick chops.

c. Carnitas: Slow cook them with a little stock and some taco or fajita seasoning [i make my own instead of chancing the packets you get from the store]. Cook them about 10-11 hours on low. When they're done, pull them apart into chunks and serve on corn tortillas. You can add some chopped chiles to this, too.

d. Tossed in an oven bag with slice apples. Bake according to the chart that comes with the bags.

e. Thick ones can be stuffed and baked [apples, walnuts, and feta?]

f. Grilled-- basically searing on a grill instead of a skillet.

g. Leftover chops can be cubed and used as a base for fried rice.

h. Thin chops are good with eggs for breakfast. I've also used cubed, leftover chops with cubed potato and diced onion as the base for a fritatta.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!

      How long did this last ? 😳

      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
