Honey Soy Porkchops with Light Salad

There is nothing better than cooking a great meal for family and everyone REALLY enjoying it.  Could’ve been that it was a great summer evening as well.  

This meal was simple to put together and great to present.  It was one of the few times I was cooking with the other white meat (pork), but since they have lightened the ban on the cook to temperature on pork, it tastes so much better.  I have always been a fan of medium to medium rare – make it so tender – style meat and pork is no different.  Actually, on steaks, I always lean closer to med-rare/rare…especially topped with a blue cheese crumble …but that’s a whole different meal.

The meal tonight included a nice summer breeze, a simple white wine, a simple citrus salad and the super powerful and sweet pan cooked pork chop.  YUM!!!
