Casserole-Sauteed Pork Chops

Well? Having had "date night" last night I was looking for something 1 - that I had most of the ingredients on hand and 2 - was easy. I LOVE a challenge but just wasn't up for one today. So my inspiration was the leftover half of pork tenderloin I found in the freezer. Voila! Who says Julia has to be expensive! I went to work with what I had on hand. :)

I have to say, the more I cook of Julia's recipes one truth holds - method. Always method. the simplest of ingredients transformed through method. I felt a bit of a failure for not taking on something more complicated today when I started. By the time I finished? Food is art in it's simplest form. I love it. :)


  1. In its' simplicity, this dish was fantastic.

  2. Looks yummy. It can be challenging to create a dish from only what's on hand! I call it "pantry cooking."

  3. It looks fabulous and I'll bet it tasted as good as it looked.
