Easy Marinade for Pork
I used this marinade tonight with some lean pork chops and it was tasty enough for me to share.
Rub Chops or Tenderloin with several cloves of garlic or a couple of tablespoons of chopped jarred garlic.
Pour over the pork:
2 cups of Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar
Marinade for 30 minutes +
Bake or broil the pork as normal.
Last night I made Pork Curry
8 ounces pork chop-265
1/2 cup dry rice-300
5 oz broccoli-50
7.5 oz mushrooms-50
2 tbls corn oil (for wok lubricant)-240 (I should have measured that better)
So that comes to a total of-453 calories per serving!
Not bad, even with the oil. I need to try to find a way to cut back on that. But the wok is touchy and hard to cook with if you don't use oil. I may try PAM again and see how it works... I'd use olive oil but for woks you need to use an oil that can handle high heat...so yeah makes it a little tougher!
So if you'd like to make it....
Cut up your stuff...(get your rice in the rice cooker or going on the stove) Then chop up your veggies and meat. Heat pan, add oil and sear the veggies one at a time. Take them out before searing the others because the wok will cool off too much if you overload it.
Remove all veggies and add more oil to lube up the pan and sear the pork. Add curry powder, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and pepper flakes. Once the pork is cooked add your veggies..stir (Taste test it in case you want to add something)
Serve on top of steamed rice! Yum!
