Pork has gotten so inexpensive lately. I bought a nearly 3-pound pack of sirloin pork chops the other day for $4.50. Name another meat you can get for that price. Go ahead. I'll wait. Beef is about that for 1 pound, more if you're getting better cuts. I can't hardly find chicken breast for less… Continue reading BBQ Pineapple Pork Chops
Oklahoma City is lucky to have the choice of restaurants and cuisines that we have. A lot of people (food magazines, television shows) overlook our food mecca. You'll see nonstop chatter about Austin and Seattle, but nill when it comes to OKC. We've got a very large Korean and Vietnamese population here, and some outstanding… Continue reading Cuban Stuffed Pork Chops

A much needed deep-clean was in store for me. I had six pork chops in there of various varieties. A couple of bone-in… Continue reading Al Pastor Pork Chops
Savory bone-in chops slow cooked to perfection with a tangy tomato & balsamic vinegar sauce. Best served with noodles or potatoes and with a heap of the tomatoes!
