Asian Baked Pork Chops

Monday, August 23, 2010

Let me start off by saying not everyone in my family is a fan of pork chops. These pork chops will be made again! Everyone (including daddy) loved them! I looked up and they had cleared their plates. These were so incredibly easy to make. If you are looking for something a little different to do with your pork chops, I highly recommend this recipe.

1/8 cup soy sauce

1 garlic clove, minced

  1. Brown the pork chops on both sides.
  2. Place in a greased casserole dish. (or use cooking spray)
  3. Combine all the ingredients and pour over the pork chops.
  4. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 60 minutes. Turn the chops over after about 30 minutes into the cooking cycle.


Butter and Garlic Potatoes

This is a really good and easy side dish. One of the ways everyone in our house will eat potatoes too.  You can use any kind of potato that you like. Tonight I used new potatoes because they are in season and so good.

Garlic and Butter Potatoes 

5 or 6 medium potatoes, boiled
Garlic powder

  1. Drain the boiled potatoes and place in a serving bowl. Using a knife cut them into bite sized pieces. 
  2. In a small bowl add butter (about 1/4 cup is what I use) a little bit of garlic powder, parsley and salt. Melt in microwave for about 1 minute, or until butter is melted. Stir well and pour over potatoes
  3. Mix the potatoes gently with a large spoon, taking care not to break them.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Today I took the kids for some back to school shopping.  We bought 1 backpack and 2 lunch bags...$75.00! When did going back to school become so expensive? I'm dreading going to buy the sneakers and clothes. Hold me? lol   Since the kids can't take peanut butter to their schools, I generally don't do much cooking with peanut butter during the school year. Today it was cool so I figured if I was going to bake peanut butter cookies it was a great day to do it.  Here is the recipe I used and they are delicious! Very reminiscent of the recipe I used to love about 15 years ago and lost.

Peanut Butter Cookies
Makes 4 dozen

½ cup butter, softened
1 cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Combine butter, peanut butter, sugar vanilla and egg, beating until light and fluffy. Stir together dry ingredients and add to butter mixture, blending thoroughly.
  2. Shape into 1 inch balls and place about 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Flatten with fork tines in a criss cross pattern.
  3. Bake at 350 °F. for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
