Rosemary Pork Chop Dinner

We had pork chops for dinner tonight. Today, I made some rosemary pork chops with baked potato and carrots. It's fairly easy to make, anybody can do it. I started by marinating the pork chops overnight in a Ziploc bag. I added some of Chef Paul's Magic Seasoning, garlic salt, some oil and of course, rosemary. Let it marinade for at least 4-5 hours, overnight would be even better.

Slice up some onions and line a baking dish with it.

Brown both sides of the pork chops in high heat for a few minutes. You do not need to cook it through, this is just to give it a nice brown color.

Place the pork chops on top of the onions.

Cover it with aluminium foil and pop it in a 400F oven for about 45 mins.

Now, we can start working on the baked potatoes. Clean and scrub some Russet potatoes. Make sure it's really clean. Using a knife or fork, poke a few holes all over each potato. This is to prevent it from exploding in the oven.

Put the potato on a piece of aluminium foil. Spray on some vegetable spray. Sprinkle some garlic salt for seasoning.

Wrap up the potatoes and place them on a cookie tray. Pop it in the oven together with the pork chops. The potatoes should be done together with the pork chops.

While the pork chops and potatoes are in the oven, slice up a few carrots. Heat up some butter in a pan and add in the carrots. Stir fry the carrots with the butter for a minute. Sprinkle in some garlic salt, sugar and black pepper. Mix it all up. Pour in some hot water, just barely covering the carrots. Allow it to go to a boil and then turn down the heat to low. Let it simmer until all the water is gone and the carrots are cooked through. It sounds simple but it's really yummy!

After 45 minutes or so, the pork chops and potatoes should be ready. Here it is! Rosemary Pork Chops served with a Baked Potato and Carrots. I have added in a small dollop of butter and some bacon on the baked potatoes.

A really simple dish that is also yummy to eat. An all time dinner favorite here at the Podany Household! :D
