This is an original recipe that I made for a friend the other night and she loved it. But tonight. I’ve got the meat marinating in the fridge and tonight, I’m going to bake the dish instead of frying – for something different. This is a great dish to make on a cold wintry day.
- 1 package of pork chops – thaw and cut into bite sized bits
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp s of bread crumbs – I use the yummy Japanese style crumbs
- 1 cup of green onions – diced
- 1 cup of fresh mushrooms – cut into small pieces
- 1 cup of fresh spinach – stems removed – completely dried
- Olive oil and spices – salt, pepper, garlic
Marinating the meat:
- Once the meat is thawed and cut into bite sized pieces, place into a mixing bowl.
- Add the breadcrumbs and mix well
- Add the onions, 1 tbsp of olive oil and spices
- Add 1 egg – beaten
- Mix with your fingers until the meat is covered with breadcrumbs.
- Cover the bowl with saran wrap and place bowl in the fridge for 1-2 hours or as desired.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease the bottom of a casserole dish with butter
- Add in the mushrooms, spinach, some more green onions and spices as desired
- Add in the meat mixture and mix well
- Cook for 40-45 minutes or until pork is fully done (the meat should be white – no pink)
This dish is extremely versatile. Double the ingredients for a larger serving. This recipe will serve two people – or for a single person, and you will have left overs for the next day. You can pair up the dish with freshly baked biscuits or potatoes.
PRO TIP: marinating meat before cooking brings out the flavour of the meat and makes it so much more tender. For beef, or thicker meat – let the meat mixture marinate over night.
