I’m going back to basics in every aspect of my life.
Today, I start with my recipes: simple, easy, and FOUR ingredients. Ya can’t beat that!
I’ve been thinking lately that I need to reboot my fit journey, appreciate the littler things in life and not think too big and also, make recipes on my blog that are easy, simple and basic.
Spiralized veggies are awesome as is, there’s no need to spruce them up! In that vain, this recipe calls for four ingredients: sweet potatoes, garlic, kale and pork chops (literally, that’s it – aside from olive oil, salt and pepper.)
And if you’re thinking, “what about a sauce?”, don’t fret: the pan juices from the pork chops become the “sauce,” and this dish is packed with savory, rich flavor.
Someone messaged me on Snapchat and said, “I usually don’t cook pork chops because I think, ‘that’ll take two hours.'”
Let me tell you – this pork chop is juicy, and it barely took me 20 minutes to make it. The trick is not overcooking it, so if you can, grab a quick-read kitchen thermometer, it’ll be your best friend when cooking meats.
The slight sweetness of the sweet potatoes, the garlicky kale and the juicy pork chop make for a delicious, easy, quick, weeknight dinner.
