Garlic Ginger Pork Chops
For the last 6 months or so, we’ve been ordering about 80-90% of our meat from Yonderway Farm, located in Brenham, Texas. We pick up our order once a month and fill our freezer with beef, chicken, and pork, all fresh from the farm. “Meat delivery day” is always exciting for me (especially when we can snag some fresh eggs, too!).
When we order a produce share from Rawfully Organic the same week? Well, those Thursday evenings are like Christmas morning for me. Love it!!
The Yonderway Farm pork chops in particular have been delicious lately, and this preparation (created on the fly by me) is definitely a keeper. I baked them this time around (pouring the extra marinade in the pan), but next time we’ll grill them. Everything is better grilled, don’t you think?! As you can see, I served our pork chops with acorn squash and roasted broccoli and red peppers for a colorful, tasty, and healthy dinner.
