I can't take credit for this recipe but I am passing it on whilst giving it high accolades. Gordon Ramsey has delivered another dish that will satisfy your hunger and taste buds quickly and painlessly. In less than half an hour you have a nutritious and healthy dish! It is a meal that I will continue to make for these exact reasons. I strongly believe everyone should have staple recipes like this to go to when you want good food but are lacking energy. I served this with some aromatic rice and it was a perfectly balanced and blissful dinner.
bell peppers (I used orange and red)
1 red onion
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves of garlic
salt and pepper to taste
Heat pan on high and add about two tablespoons of olive oil.
Slice your bell peppers and onions and put them in the hot pan. Season with salt and pepper. Add one tablespoon sugar. Stir to distribute.
Add two tablespoons red wine vinegar and let simmer for 3 minutes, until it begins to caramelize the vegetables.
Add sliced basil and cook for 30 more seconds. Set the vegetables to the side in a bowl.
Season pork chops with salt and fresh ground pepper (lightly press both into the meat).
In the same pan over high heat add olive oil, crushed garlic cloves, and a few sprigs of fresh thyme (you can use dried thyme too).
Place the pork chops into the pan (you should hear it sizzle). Cook the chops for about 4 minutes on each side. *Cooking time will take longer for thicker meat cuts*
Add butter and lightly baste the pork chops.
Take off heat and let chops rest. Meanwhile, place a spoonful of the peppers and onions on a plate. Top with two pork chops. Garnish with more basil if desired. Serve!
