Today's meal was inspired by Brad's posting: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=24027
I bought some boneless pork chops at the local meat market that I frequent. I meant to put them in the marinade last night, but we got home late after going to see Kathleen Madigan. So, this morning, I took some fennel seed and put them in a coffee grinder. I mixed it with some EVOO and some pressed garlic. I used the jacccard on the pork chops and then covered them in the mixture. Since I didn't take care of things last night, I used the FoodSaver and vacuum sealed them and put back in the fridge.
As the subject implies, I had one less helper around today. One of our Boxers, the one we adopted about 5 years ago, ended up with lymphoma and his quality of life was suffering. We had him put down today . I do have a helper left and she was there to assist me today.
The chops turned out very well and we're going to have them again. I also cut up some bell peppers and coated them with some EVOO and salt and pepper.
Thanks to Brad for sharing!
