what are you doing for father's day?

hey everyone! I love watching cooking shows. I have always love reading cookbooks. I have been a collector of cookbooks. One of my fav cooking shows is Paula Dean! I was watching her the other day and she was making Lowcountry Smothered Pork Chops. boy did they sound yummy. well, I have made them twice and both times Bruce just about licked his plate. So that is what I am fixing for father's day next sunday. I am sure the boys and my father will love them too! so here you go:

Lowcountry Smothered Pork Chops or as I will call them: Plate Lickin' Chops

4 pork chops
salt and freshly ground pepper
ground cayenne pepper (use very sparingly if you don't want it hot and spicy)
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all purpose flower, spread on a plate
2 medium green bell peppers, stemmed, cored and membranes removed, cut into strips
2 yellow onions, trimmed, cut lengthwise
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth
2 to 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce

trim the excess fat from the chops and season will with salt, pepper, and cyenne. melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Lightly roll the chops in flour, shake off excess, and slip them into the pan. Brown well, about 3 minutes per side, and remove them to a plate.

add the bell peppers andnonions, to the skillet, and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about half a minute longer. push the vegetables to the side of the skillet. add chops to pan and place vegetables on top of pork chops. pour in the broth and sprinkle with Worcestshire sauce. cover pan with foil - I just used the lid - and allow to simmer for 45 minutes or until chops are tender.

I promise your man will love this!!! enjoy....
