Center-Cut Pork Chops with Warm Beet, Carrot & Walnut Salad

Center-Cut Pork Chops with Warm Beet, Carrot & Walnut Salad
I tried Blue Apron out after learning about it from Deidre Huff, and YUM!
Pricing isn’t bad, either.

Favorite recipe so far:
Makes: 2 Servings
Calories: About 615 Per Serving
Cooking Time: 30 to 40 minutes
This recipe uses some of our favorite root vegetables to accent the richness of center-cut pork chops, basted with butter, smashed garlic and fresh thyme. You’ll marinate beet and shallot in Champagne vinegar, infusing the earthy, sweet beet with the vinegar’s delicate brightness (and mellowing the bite of the shallot). Then you’ll finish the marinated beet with sautéed carrots and arugula. The result is a wholesome and gourmet way to warm up.

  1. Cilla C , it’s worth a try.  I may not continue, as SuperDave isn’t as crazy about it as I am…but I’m learning to use ingredients that are new to me, so that’s a good thing.
    Needed to stretch my horizons a bit, you know? 🙂

  2. When it comes to about $10 per meal per person, it beats the $22 pizzas SD would eat all by himself, Angie Person .
    But yeah, that’s the draw for me too…the things I wouldn’t normally buy, in an amount that means I won’t waste anything.

  3. I’m trying so hard to eat fresh and more healthily. Adding variety and tastes is right up my alley, but I’m also having to consider quantities that won’t ruin before I’m able to use them. Root vegetables do keep longer, so that’s a plus.

  4. Looks delicious BobbieZen – I too have a spouse that isn’t all that crazy about healthy eating, but, I’m the coojk, like my parents taught me – eat or go hungry – actually the said “eat or else!”

  5. You pretty much need to use these up in a week’s time Cilla C .  And the prep, does take some time..these aren’t necessarily “Quick and easy”…just pre-packaged in the right amounts.
