Sometimes one loses control and buys meat at big box (big mistake) stores. I did last month and purchased a package of pork chops. Now I am on a mission. Having sub-divided that mammoth package into small family dinner portions, I am trying to find recipes to make each pork chop dinner delightful. Quite a task considering the quality of meat I am dealing with.
What I have discovered, is while the meat itself remains lackluster, I’ve learned about gravies, sauces and cooking methods that are new to me.
So in the end…big box store purchased meat is great for experimenting. Once I have a collection of recipes I like, I will purchase the high end meat from the local butcher and eat like a queen.
