My First Post….

23 Jul

Seems to be a little cliché to have my first title as “My First Post,” but it really is….I have never once before tried to branch out into the literary world, thought about it but never really gained the balls to do it till now.  I am doing this for one reason and one reason only….To earn that fucking paycheck!!!! I’m just kidding!!! The reason that I wanted to start this blog was to try to reach out to as many people as I can and try show them all the amazing aspects of food that they are missing!!  Just bare with me and I promise that when you continuously  read this blog you will soon come to find your new safe haven…

I don’t want to leave the good ole blog blank for the first day so here is what I made for dinner!"Tradeoff"

Parmesan Crusted Pork with a Whitesala Wine Sauce

1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese Grated
1/4 Teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
1 Teaspoon Granulated Garlic
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
Salt to taste
1 Teaspoon Oregano
3 Tablespoons Butter
4 Bone in Pork Chops about an Inch
2 Teaspoons Paprika
2-3 Shallots Sliced
1/3 White Wine
1/3 Cup of Chicken Broth
Splash of Lemon Juice
1 1/2 Teaspoons A-1 Sauce
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

Combine the Panko Bread Crumbs, Parmesan Cheese, and all the spices together in a bowl. After all the ingredients are mixed together transfer them to a plate. Then take your pork chops and dip each side into the Panko to thoroughly cover each side then set aside. Take a large saute pan turn to medium high add 2 tablespoons of the butter and the olive oil. When the butter is melted and begins to slightly bubble, add the pork chops and brown each side approximately 2-3 minutes a side. While this is happening preheat your oven to 400 fahrenheit.

After you have browned all the Pork Chops place them in the oven for 15 minutes for a Medium rare. Take that same pan and add the remaining butter. From there begin to saute your sliced shallots for about 5 minutes, keeping your eye on them because they cook faster them normal onions! After your shallots have carmelized, deglaze your pan with the White Wine, Marsala Wine, and the Splash of Lemon Juice. Reduce that to half and when that has reduced add the chicken broth and the A-1 and simmer for about 10 minutes. Finally serve on top the Pepper Jas Rice and Enjoy!!!!

Pepper Jas Rice

1 Cup of Jasmine Rice
1 1/4 Cups of Water
1/4 Cup of White Wine
2 Tablespoons of Non-Salted Butter
7-8 Pepperoncini’s Sliced
2-3 Medium Sized Shallots Sliced
1 Teaspoon of Dried Basil
1 Teaspoon of Dried Oregano
1 Teaspoon of Celery Salt
Pepper To Taste

Take 1 Tablespoon of the butter and melt on medium heat. Then add your rice make sure to coat every grain of rice with the melted butter while stirring for about a minute and a half. Following that, add the water and all the spices, bring to a bring then cover and simmer for about 20 minutes.

While the rice is cooking take a small saute pan and add the remaining butter. Once the butter has melted add your sliced pepperoncini’s and sliced shallots to the party and saute those bad boys for about 4-5 Minutes or until your liking. Once the sauteing process is done add the veggies to the rice, stir it up and finish the remaining cooking time. Serve beneath the Pork Chops!!!
