Pork Chops Florentine
The other white meat was the feature for tonight's dinner. I started by making an herb oil with olive oil, torn, fresh sage leaves, chopped fresh rosemary, chopped fresh oregano and a couple of thinly sliced garlic cloves and set this aside.
I tossed some broccolini with olive oil and salt and pepper. A couple of pork chops were seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled about 5 minutes per side. Once done, they were put the in the herbed olive oil for 3 minutes and then flipped over and allowed to rest in the oil for another 3 minutes. The broccolini were also grilled until nice grill marks appeared.
The other part of dinner was savory tomatoes which was a thick slice of a tomato, dipped in the herb oil on both sides. Next a slice of goat cheese was dipped in the herbed olive oil and then dredged in seasoned panko bread crumbs. The tomatoes also went on the grill for about 5 minutes.
Once everything was grilled and rested, each plate got a pork chop, half of the broccolini, a savory tomato slice and everything got a drizzle of the leftover oil.
This entire meal was delicious!
