Palmer Pork and "Wild" Rice

I had no idea what to call this so kept it simple. I was feeling random and finally have my smell back after what seems like months, maybe it really was... anywho I wanted something savory and this hit the spot. DON'T skip the rice, it is so rich and amazing. It brings out the glutton in me for sure. The amount of this rice I can eat in one sitting is obscene, really, it is.

"Wild" Rice

3/4 cup vegan butter
2 Cups GF Beef Stock
1/2 GF Dry Onion Soup Mix packet
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup white rice

Heat medium sized pot to medium high heat, and melt butter butter. When the butter in melted and starting to bubble, throw in the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic. Saute until soft. Pour in the beef stock and 1/4 cup dry onion soup mix packet, and the rice. Reduce heat to low and cover tightly with a lid. Cook for what it says on the rice, about 20 to 30 minutes.

Pork and Sauce

I am going to say right now, LIGHTY salt if you salt the pork at all, the worsteshire sauce and broth add plenty of salt!

4 Bone-in thick pork chops
2 Tbl vegan butter
3 Tbl olive oil
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup GF Beef Stock
1-2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp worsteshiere sauce
1 Tbl tomato past
1/2 tsp ground thyme
1 Tbl cooking sherry ( real would be better but I don't have it sitting around, maybe I should...)

Heat pan to medium high heat, melt the butter in the oil. When the oil is hot, add the peppered pork chops and quickly brown on each side. Once brown remove from heat and quickly add the onions in and saute. In a small bowl add the stock and the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add too the onions once they are softening and bring back the meat. Turn meat around in sauce to make sure they all get a little bit of happy, cover and reduce to low and simmer for about 20 minutes or until pork is done. When pork is done, remove and raise the heat up to high, once it starts to boil, stir often until the sauce reduces and gets all rich and yummy. Pour this yumminess right on top of the pork. You will be happy you made that last step. You don't have too, but you really should, like, REALLY should!

  1. I'm betting that pork stuff would be good as chicken. I might try that with chicken breast!
