Foodie Friday - Pork and Potatoes (w/linky)

Foodie Friday

It's funny, last night as I was thinking what recipe to share I started talking food with Mark. His first thought was a Plum Pork I had made years ago. We loved it so much, we had it probably monthly for awhile. Then I must have misplace the recipe when we moved, and had forgotten all about it. Well, it happens it was the exact recipe I  had started thinking about this week too!

So without further ado, I give you
Plum Pork

- Pork chops
- Plum sauce (usually found in the asian aisle at your grocery store)
- 1 Tbs worcestire sauce

Place the pork in a non-stick frying pan, over medium-low heat. Brown on one side, and then flip. Mix the plum sauce with the worcestire sauce. Spread the plum sauce on the cooked side of pork, while the other side cooks. Cook until middle is no longer pink. It really doesn't take too long.
What I love about this is you can adapt it to different cuts of pork. I'm adding it to next weeks menu on some pork ribs. Instead of browning on the stove top, I'll put it under the broiler.

Last week - Fun, Easy Recipes for Kids linked up
Red Potatoes
These are so easy, and should be fun to let my kids help out in the kitchen. Although we're not having Plum Pork tonight, we are having Pork with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce and these potatoes on the side! My mouth is already watering!

We'd love to see what's cooking in your kitchen!
