I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

One Pan Pork Chops and Potatoes

Here are your ingredients:

9 boneless pork loin chops, 3/4 inch thick
3 medium onions, sliced
6 medium potatoes
olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper
2/3 cup red wine (broth or water)

Heat olive oil in frying pan.  I needed to use two pans so it's not really a one-pan meal, but you get what I mean : )

Sprinkle thyme, salt and pepper on pork and brown on each side.  Remove to a plate.

Slice the potatoes 1/4 inch thick and set aside.

Next add a little olive oil to pan and lightly brown the onion and garlic, making sure not to burn the garlic.  Remove this to a plate.

Again a little more olive oil to the pan on medium, add the pork chops, onions and top it off with the potatoes.  Give it all a liberal sprinkling of rosemary, salt and pepper.

Add 2/3 cup red wine (broth or water) to the bottom of the pan, cover and cook on low/medium 30 minutes.

Halfway through the cooking time spoon some of the juices over the meat and vegetables. Turn the meat over as well.  If you find the pan a little dry add a small amount of liquid, but not too much as you don't want your potatoes to get mushy.

I even have enough leftovers for another meal (if someone doesn't have a late night snack with it before!)
