Foodie Friday - Rancher Pork Chops

Hosted by
Wow guys, so sorry I missed last weeks linky! It looks like plenty was shared over on Diane's blog though, and I'm excited to go through those recipes, and try some out. While I was waiting for the internet to be hooked up here, I found myself cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I've got a lot of fun recipes to share over the next few weeks, but I'll start with my favorite so far!
Rancher Pork Chops
4 boneless Pork Chops
Queso Fresco
Place pork in shallow dish and pour Grapeseed Oil over them.  Rub a couple Tbs of the Rancher Steak Rub on both sides of pork. Let marinate for 30 minutes to an hour (the longer it marinates the more flavor you'll get).
Heat 2 TBS Grapeseed Oil in a frying pan. Add pork chops and cook until no longer pink. Flip over once to get both sides. After you flip the pork chops, add a slice of queso fresco to each chop. Once the pork is done, serve and enjoy!  We enjoyed mashed potatoes and corn on the side, but a fresh green salad would also go very nicely.
Take a look at these inspiring recipes from last week's linky!
Little Kitchen, Big Bites shared this yummy looking Baked Salmon with Chunky Guacamole and Cilantro Lime Rice
Gluten Free Food made a Snap Pea Soup with Mint and Garam Masala.
I've heard of split pea soup, but never Snap pea soup. This looks like a great twist!
My Carolina Kitchen celebrated her birthday with an Heirloom Tomato Tart, made 2 ways! These look quite delicious!
I'm looking forward to some more tasty treats! So link up and go mix some yummy food up after browsing around everyone's recipes!




  1. Thanks for hosting, glad you've got your internet back and running. Have a great weekend!

  2. Tell me again why is grapeseed oil so good to use? Someone recommended on a health site I was on. Is it nice to cook with?

    1. Nutritionally it's the same as Olive Oil. The difference comes in flavor and smoke point. Grapeseed oil has less flavor, so you get more of the foods flavor. This link gives a good run down on the benefits http://www.mywildtree.com/content/GrapeseedOil.aspx

  3. Mmmm make me miss pork chops! I used to love them with a mushroom sauce :)

  4. Wow, I love the posts you chose to feature and that heirloom tomato tart looks incredible! Thanks so much for hosting and I've shared the roasted chickpeas snack. Now I need to visit all this other amazing food...

  5. Thanks for the linky! I've added your site to my linkup parties list.  Please stop by Frugal Food Thursday at Frugal Follies to link up as well!
