Brussel sprouts and apricots make a great pair

>> Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Brussel sprouts get a bad wrap but I happen to think they are pretty great -- especially when paired with apricots. For dinner tonight I prepared pork chops with a side of brussel sprouts with apricots. A simple, but delicious dish that can be whipped up in about 20 minutes.

What you will need:

Pork chops
Brussel sprouts, thinly sliced
Dried apricots, chopped
Slivered almonds
Cracked pepper
Olive oil

Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet and place pork chops in to cook. Salt, pepper and cover. Let cook over medium heat, turning over every few minutes, for about 12 minutes.

While the pork chops are cooking, heat another tablespoon in a medium skillet. Add brussel sprouts, apricots and a sprinkling of almonds, then salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until soft.

Remove pork chops from the heat and let rest for a couple of minutes prior to cutting. Serve up your plate and enjoy!
