Simple and cost effective, this dish is also packed full of prosperity and protection magic.
My husband eyed this suspiciously the first time it appeared on his plate. He reacts that way to anything new. But he tried it and now he is hooked. Its definitely not low fat, but it is low carb, cheap, tasty, and filling, and it is super quick and simple to make. I use a cast iron skillet to cook this, while the chops are resting the green beans get tossed in all the left over goodness in the pan and emerge piping hot and tasty in just a few minutes.
- 4 pork chops
- 2 oz. butter, for frying
- 1 lb fresh green beans
- salt and pepper
- 5 oz. butter, at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- ½ tablespoon garlic powder
- salt and pepper
Mix butter, garlic, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Season pork chops with salt and pepper to taste.
Heat a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add butter to the pan and add the chops. Fry for about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and thoroughly cooked through.
Remove the chops from the pan and let them rest.
Add the beans to the pan you just cooked the pork chops in. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium-high heat until the beans are a vibrant green and are still a bit crunchy.
Serve the pork chops and beans together with a dollop of garlic butter melting on top.
