On my last post, I left a teaser for Plated and now I'm ready to show you what I was talking about. I was just ecstatic to receive our first Plated shipment last Wednesday. This food delivery service is different than others I have heard about. It's not prepackaged foods, this is affordable gourmet ingredients shipped fresh to my doorstep along with detailed recipe cards.
1 russet potato
1 gala apple
1 bulb fennel
1.5 cups arugula
1.5 teaspoons dried tarragon
2 pork chops
1/4 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup apple cider
What I needed at home:
2 baking sheets
2 Tablespoons +2 teaspoons olive oil
Once the apple and fennel are roasted and soft, toss with fresh arugula, taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
After the pork is removed and resting, discard contents of pan and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and heat over medium heat. Peel shallot and mince. When oil is shimmering, add minced shallot and cook until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes.
Add vinegar to shallots in pan and scrape up brown bits from bottom.
Plate the pork chop on each plate and drizzle over pan gravy. Serve alongside salad and potatoes.
This was delicious and a recipe that I certainly wanted to blog about so I can make this again. The dish came together quickly and tasted great. It definitely got Jim's stamp of approval. He loves pork chops but I did not have a go-to recipe for them....until now.
If you are interested in building your culinary skills, introducing your family to new foods, or finding an easier way to get dinner on the table, then Plated is for you.
Plated gave me permission to post the recipe, they are not paying me or giving me any compensation in exchange...although free food would be nice. All comments and opinions are 100% my own. I do get credits to my account when others sign up through my specific referral link. After you become a member, you can earn credits too with your own referral link.
If you check out the service and decide this is something you want to try, then please go through my Plated link. Jim's tummy thanks you.
