Erin invited me over on the 5th for a special new recipe she found. We had a couple of our close friends over, and then we feasted on her fine cooking. As I walked into her apartment, I could smell this aroma of brown sugar and basil with the savory scent of pork. Erin was busy in her kitchen finishing up the last touches and having me try a couple of roasted potatoes in the oven to see if they were done.
“What is that you are making that smells like a love affair soon to be in my mouth?”
I moved in to get a closer look. She told me they were Basil Pork Chops, and she found the recipe on allrecipes.com. She served roasted red potatoes with them and some peas.
I tried to make a quick pumpkin loaf cake with ream cheese frosting, but I rushed it. No big… her meal was the star, and I had to share this Basil Pork recipe with you all.
“These tender, glazed chops sent in by Lisa Gilliland of Fort Collins, Colorado, get great flavor from a little brown sugar, chili powder and dried basil. The fast-cooking entree is sure to make a regular appearance at your dinner table.”
