Day 18 - Pan Fried Glazed Pork

Cookbook - Jamie's Food Revolution

Today is Tuesday, if you didn't notice, and I believe we made the most super yummy delicious thing ever. Let the record show that this is only the second time in my memory that I've had pork, aside from sausage and bacon. Pork tenderloins and pork chops are not part of our usual diet.

It was very, very fast and easy to make. You just get some pork chops, put them in a bowl with some olive oil and salt and mix it up. And then you cook it in a pan. After it's cooked you put some maple syrup or honey or apple sauce (or chutney, which we did not have available because it is also not part of our usual diet). We used honey for some and maple syrup for other. Then we squeezed lemon juice on them.

Lovely dark reddy-golden color

Jamie says in his cookbook, and I quote, "Have the confidence to cook them until almost a dark reddy-golden color." First I took it off too early and it didn't have the color or the glaze. So I put it back on and cooked it a little more.
Lovely presentation, right?

The verdict is a lot of thumbs up by me, my brother Alex, Sophie... by everyone. Sophie says, "It was supercalifragalisticexpeialidocious."
A little blurry, but still lovely, right?

We had it with white rice, which was good. 2 THUMBS UP

Until next time...



  1. YUMMY! We have pork at least once a week. We especially love to make ribs. Does Jamie have a recipe for ribs??
