CROCK POT HONEY SOY PORK CHOPS

Crock Pot Honey Soy Chops TSLCThis recipe is so easy in the crock pot and is great with the gravy served over mashed potatoes, rice or even noodles.  An easy comfort food meal your family will enjoy.

4 to 6 pork chops (I used bone-in center cut but you could use any chops)

1/2 cup flour

1 tablespoon Montreal Steak Seasoning, Optional

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

4 tablespoons cooking oil

1 green pepper, seeded and sliced

1 medium onion, peeled and sliced in rings

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup honey or 1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup soy sauce

Combine flour, steak seasoning and pepper in a brown bag or shallow pan.  Cover chops with flour.  Brown in oil on top of the stove.  Place pork chops in crock pot with sliced green pepper and onion rings on top.  Combine tomatoes, water, honey and soy sauce and pour over the top.  Cook on low 6 to 7 hours or high 3 to 4 hours.  Makes 4 to 6 servings.  Enjoy!

Note:  I don’t add salt to this recipe because the soy sauce makes it salty enough for us. You can add more salt if you want.

PARMESAN BAKED POTATO WEDGES

My family loves potatoes and they will eat them anyway you “fix” them.  This Parmesan Potato Wedges recipe is a favorite of ours with onion dip and so easy to make.  We like them as a side dish for a meal, too.

Parmesan Baked Potato Wedges

 

4 to 6 potatoes, peeled and cut into wedges (I make 8 wedges per potato)

1 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes

1/2 teaspoon oregano

Pinch cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1 stick butter, melted or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup

Cooking spray

In a bowl whisk together the flour, parsley flakes, oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika, black pepper, salt, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese.  Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.  Dip the potato wedges in the butter and roll in the flour mixture or put flour mixture in a paper bag, add potato wedges and shake to cover. Arrange on sprayed baking sheet.  Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes on each side turning once. (I spray the potatoes with a little cooking spray when I turn them).  Makes 4 to 6 servings.  Enjoy!

First, I would like to thank everyone that has bought our new cookbook, Sweet Things!  We are so happy that so many of you like the cookbook and have left such wonderful comments. I recently had this comment from a gentleman on the blog:  “My cousin in Mississippi told me about your cookbook. I live in North Idaho so I’m ordering one.”  We were so pleased and I will take “word of mouth” as great advertising anytime. Thank you all for helping us to get the word out!   We hope this book will be counted as one of your favorites and one you will reference often.  We still have limited copies available but we are getting low on inventory.   Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and this would make a great gift if you have a special lady that loves cooking.  Click the link for more information on the cookbook and to order:  The Southern Lady Cooks, Sweet Things.

Next, I want to let you know the top five recipes for 2014.  These are the recipes that received the most hits during the entire year and were the most popular.  I am listing in order and if you would like to check out each one just click on the name of the recipe. Four out of the five recipes turned out to be sweets!  We Southerners love our sweets and this is one reason our first cookbook was chocked full of desserts and sweets.
