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.
