Well, I can rest a lot easier now that my colonoscopy is "behind" me! (Sorry for the pun.) The reason I had it done, was partly due to my age (50) but mainly because of my ulcerative colitis. I have had it now for 9 yrs and was having some mini flare-ups. I didn't know that's what I was having until the doctor saw that my colon had some inflammation. So, she increased my meds and that should solve the problem. She also took some biopsies and will let me know how those look in a few weeks. Other than that, I'm good! Whew!
So, I was relieved to know I could resume my normal diet yesterday. My husband whipped up the best tasting pork chops, so I thought I would share that with you today. It's called pan seared pork chops in a white wine sauce. It was VERY easy and not expensive. I will provide a link to the recipe at the end of this post.
First, you will need these ingredients. (We deviated slightly using a different meat seasoning though and used vegetable oil not olive oil that is shown.)
Begin by seasoning your pork chops.
Then, add them to a pan of melted butter and oil.
Sear them on each side.
After they're seared, remove them from the pan.
Then, add onions and garlic to the pan. (We left out the onions.)
After that is cooked, add white wine and water.
Then, place your meat back into the pan and cover. Cook for about 20 minutes until cooked through.
You can also put this in the oven if you prefer that method.
When it's done, you are ready to eat! We served ours with homemade mashed potatoes with brown gravy and seasoned broccoli. We poured some of the juice from the pan over our meat. It was as good as what you would find in a restaurant!
The complete (printable) recipe can be found HERE.
I hope that you will give this a try!
Thanks for stopping by.
