Have you ever tried rushing to prepare dinner and still ended up with a delicious meal? Yup, that is possible! All you need are the right ingredients and cooking tools. Not to toot my own horn but my baking pan and rack sets are very convenient for emergency meals. This easy pork chops recipe is one of my emergency dinners that saved the day.
How to Make Quick and Easy Pork Chops Recipe
Now this is how the baking pan and rack set proved their worth. The set definitely made cooking easier for me and I hope it does for you, too.
The original recipe required me to just cook the pork chops in a cast-iron skillet. However, I decided to roast the chops in the oven for a juicier and healthier meal. Another trick is in mashing the potatoes. After boiling the potatoes with the skin on, I let them cool a bit, sliced them in half, and then pressed them against the cooling rack. Viola! Easy diced potatoes without peeling! Now it will be easier to mash them.
The tangy sweetness of apples added a unique taste to this recipe. I don’t normally use apples in cooking, except for apple pies, so this is definitely a first.
Dinner is Almost Ready!
What I love about making this recipe is that I can tidy up while the pork chops roast in the oven. Also, I didn’t need to spend too much time mashing the potatoes since the cooling rack already did a good job of dicing them.
