Pork Chops in Sour Cream Sauce
Hi everybody :)
I'm a meat lover, once upon a time I thought about becoming a vegetarian because of health issues. I DO love my fruits and vegetables too, but I think everything in moderation will balance itself out in the end. Now I'm making smarter choices about what I eat. Being a food blogger is helping me out with those choices by giving me the chance to create and explore all the different varieties of foods and how it's prepared. I get to try new ideas and share them with you :)
The recipe I'm sharing today is from my collections of cookbooks. I picked this one because the sour cream sauce caught my attention and since I had all the ingredients already on hand, I thought it would be perfect for dinner tonight.

What I Did and/or Think:
Please forgive my late post. I been really busy.
I only cook four pork chops, used Freeze Dried Garlic and Better Than Bouillon Beef Base instead of garlic clove and beef bouillon.
Now for the pork chop, I was very please with this dish. The cream had a nice slightly tangy taste to it, not overpowering the meat. The meat was tender and juicy. This made a GREAT dinner so it will be going into my REPEAT file
ENJOY! Come again....
