Last night, I experimented. No, I didn’t create my own recipe, but I decided to make a new recipe which I found on the Internet last week while I was searching for dinner ideas. It was super simple, and I had everything on hand. It was easy to make, and I really liked it.
What’s the problem? Only 2 out of the 5 people eating dinner considered it edible. Not good… And it makes me wonder about my own taste level. Do I like really weird or disgusting things? I don’t think so, but OF COURSE I won’t think what I like is disgusting.
So I’m sharing this recipe with a warning. I liked it, one of my sons liked it (he ate 3 pork chops!), but my husband and 2 of my sons thought it was inedible. As much as I enjoyed it, I am not likely to make this dish again.
Balsamic Pork Chops
Pork Chops or Pork Loin
Mix together equal parts of Balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Tenderize pork chops, if using. If using pork loin, you can cut up the loin into “chops” or marinade the entire loin. Let marinade for 30 minutes. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the chops, to taste. Cook over medium-high heat until cooked through.
Here’s my photo step-by-step. But, remember, I warned you that this dish is not loved by all.
There you have it. Not quite an epic fail, but the best dinner experience for our family. Oops!
