We had the In-Laws and my parents over for Mother’s Day this year and had a nice little cook out.
Portilo’s has a very good “Chicken Pecan Salad” that my mother usually gets when at Portilio’s and I thought that I would try to come up with something similar.
Instead of using a Dijon sauce, I went with Raspberry.
Melt the butter and mix with brown sugar, tabasco and Worcestershire sauce.
Spread out the nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for about ten minutes.
All toasty and candied up (I could have ate them all at that point).
A nice slab of ribs and some one inch thick boneless pork chops.
I would have liked to have had the bone in pork chops, but I knew that several of our guests would have not finished a whole chop and did NOT want to have that wasted.
I also seriously over estimated the amount of meat needed. There are four more chops off to the right. The good news is that I had pork chops for my lunch the rest of the week.
And here’s the salad all tossed up.
This was probably the best dish that I have ever made that did not include meat or potato. Next time I will sprinkle BACON on it to take it to “eleven”.
The wife made a loaf of “Dutch Oven Bread”.
