I can't imagine not liking pork chops! But then I am a carnivore. :D Have you ever brined pork chops before? It takes water, salt and maybe a touch of maple syrup and it makes all the difference (just google for recipes - they are dead easy). I like to throw in a vanilla bean and juniper berries into my brines but you do not have to.

Do you have ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce? If so, you can make an easy sauce using those things as well as a bit of onion powder you mention (fresh onions are better, though). What all do you have in your fridge??

Have you ever made risotto? Another easy thing that is restaurant quality. Have you heard of Hasselback potatoes? They are also very simple but look and taste impressive. I posted a recipe for them on here somewhere. Then all you need to do is heat up some frozen peas and season well.

This is like a puzzle? I would choose...salt, pepper, onion powder and paprika....dust the combined ingredients and fry in the olive oil.

(Olive oil really needs to be fresh - old is nasty :blink:)

Side: Baked potato, rice or any fresh veggie.

Oh, Oh, Oh......we always dip our pork in apple sauce.

Last time I had pork I just fried it up with a little salt and pepper, but I <3 pigs. I fried a sliced apple until lightly golden and turned it into an apple in caramel sauce. Hasselback potatoes are awesome. They are super easy but look fancy and always impress. You might earn yourself a footrub even if he doesn't like the piggie.

I would say all of the above. And butter. But I'm an overachiever. And maybe lay off the pork chop sales from now on...

I bet the hasselback potatoes (minus the bread crumbs) would be really good with sweet potatoes.....

They are good. I just switch some of the ingredients up.

Actually, I almost never user bread crumbs for Hasselbacks. I insert garlic and bay leaves in between slices and cover with cheese and scallions. They are so good!

Do you have a grill or barbecue? Grilled pork chops are so wonderful. Especially after brining!! :D Another idea is roasting seasoned chops (in a cast iron skillet - if you do not have one, it is a must for so much) in the oven with grapes and onions (chopped). They all roast together and become caramelized and sticky. So good with apricots, too.

    • I_would_widen_the_search_to_your_whole_environment.....Carefully_consider_what_else_was_different_when_you_felt_better.
    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
