I pan fried a couple of pork chops for my lunches this week. Put a nice sriracha rub on them with a nice, subtle flavor.
The best part of the chop is shown below in the box.
I call it “Meat Candy.”
It has all the best parts, some good fat around it and on the bone.
How great would it be if you could buy a package of just those bits to cook !!
Oh lucky me !!!
The grocery store had Rib Eye steak on sale for $5.99 lb (that’s my price point) and the wife brought home a couple of nice ones.
“Steaks For Grilling”
Well DUH !!!!
And despite my best judgement, there will a non potato vegetable with dinner.
Pre cut in a bag. Really simple.
Onto the fire………….
Mmmmm, Meat !!!
Perfectly cooked to rare/medium rare !!!
The veggies turned out OK.
OK, for you real carnivores out there, you know what this is……………
MEAT CANDY !!!!
Best meat on the cow !!
I used to talk to a coworker about food quite a bit and he always bought his meat without bones. He thought is was a waste of money to pay for the bone-in steak or pork chops. I told he that he needed to try it at least once.
Well, he came to work a few days later and had cooked a couple of bone in pork chops and he was raving for days about how much better the chops tasted with the bone in. Another convert !!!
Well, instead of gnawing on these, I thought that I would make some “Beef Barley Mushroom Soup.”
Boil them up for a beat.
Barley is a close second to my split pea for soup making.
Yep. those are the mushrooms.
Toss in a few carrots and pick the meat off the bone.
A few days of lunches for work.
