All Good Things
For dinner tonight I cooked Pork Chops with Bacon and Wine. If that sounds like it might be delicious, it’s because it is. I don’t normally cook something so involved after I get home from work, but I really wanted to make this recipe for the end of Bacon Week. Yes it is with a heavy heart and a high cholesterol count that Bacon Week comes to an end. With any luck it will become an annual tradition.
While we waited we took the edge off with the time honored bacon classic – Bacon Wrapped Scallops. These were premade and frozen but that did not stop them from being baconlicious.
Every step of the pork chop recipe was mouth watering. I started by mixing some crumbled bacon and onions with about a cup of wine. While that was soaking I fried the pork chops in butter. After the pork was cooked through I strained off the wine and sauteed the onions and butter in the pan with the pork chops. I added the wine back with a half a cup of heavy cream and simmered for a few minutes. I pulled the chops out and simmered the sauce for a few more minutes. I served with a side of angel hair pasta and a garden salad (tomatoes and carrots from our garden).
