Pork Chops & Glazed Carrots

It's Foodie Friday again. I think this meme is the reason I cook as much as I do now. Heaven knows I don't need this much food but it seems more enjoyable taking pictures and sharing it with you all!
You can see all the participants and Michael Lee's beautiful blog at:

Pork Chops and Glazed Carrots

I first put the baby carrots on to cook. Well, that's an exciting start!!

I dipped the pork chops into buttermilk then bread crumbs. Added some herbs like tarragon, thyme and caraway. Personally I HAVE to add caraway to any pork or it gives me a stomach ache in the middle of the night!! That's always been the case! However if I add caraway seeds to it, that doesn't happen. Remember the grandmother's trick of giving a colicky baby caraway water. Well, obviously it works : ))
I baked the pork chops in the oven till done well.

Then I browned them to a dark brown quickly in hot olive oil.

I made a quick and easy sauce with sour cream, thinly sliced green onion to taste and a little milk to make it saucy.

The carrots were just tossed in a brown sugar and butter glaze.

This was quite delicious if I do say so myself : ))
Happy eating.


  1. Such a lovely looking meal! I LOVED seeing your iron skillet...perfect for browning :)


  2. Looks delicious. The guys always love meals like this!

  3. Pork chops are such a comfort food.

  4. Yum, the pork chops look moist and delicious! Never heard that before about caraway. Will add that to my next shopping list.
