Pork chops with rosemary and garlic sauce


Pork chops with rosemary and garlic sauce will be another very easy and tasty recipe for people who don’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen preparing the dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 4 pork chops
  • spices at your choice (I used: garlic powder, Piri-Piri and salmon spice)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped 
  • 4 oz. red wine
  • 1/2 oz. vinegar
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • Chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp. flour
  • 4 tbsp. oil
  • 3 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
  • 4 oz. chicken or pork broth
  • 1/2 apple, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Dust the pork chops with the flour and spices. BBQ the pork chops to the wanted doneness or just pan fry them with some oil.  In another fry pan heat 2 tablespoons of oil and sauté the garlic and onion for 3 minutes. Add the apple, wine, broth, red pepper, rosemary, vinegar, salt, and pepper for 5 minutes. Add the pork chops and cook for approx. 5 minutes longer. Serve hot, sprinkle with chopped parsley.

Rainbow trout with artichoke and asiago dip


This is a very easy to do recipe with spectacular results. All you need is 4 rainbow trout filets, one artichoke and Asiago dip and as per Romanian tradition, any fish must be eaten with garlic sauce and polenta. Being in Canada, we added some steamed asparagus on the traditional Romanian fish-eating habit.

Ingredients:

  • 4 rainbow trout filets
  • artichoke and Asiago dip
  • salmon spice
  • garlic powder
  • cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Wash and pat dry trout filets and put them on a cutting board. Use 1/4 of the dip for each filet spreading on the entire surface. Carefully roll them and in the end stick 2-3 tooth picks inside to hold them together while cooking. Put them in a glass dish and spread salt, pepper and salmon spices on top of them and add approx. 1/2 glass of water or fish soup.

You can eat them with anything you like: rice, steamed vegetables, potatoes, etc but the best side dish is polenta and garlic sauce.
