Pork Chops with Paprika sauce

I am afraid of cooking red meat. I know it sounds silly but I just don’t eat enough of red meat to be an expert on how to cook it well. I mean I can cook ground meat just fine. It’s the steaks, the chops and the ribs that scare the chef out of me. Will I overcook it? Will I undercook it? Will it taste good? “Chicken please for me!” This time though for the boyfriend who courageously eats all my veggie dishes and “weird things”, I decided to try making pork chops. The simpler, the better is what I do when I have to cook red meat. These pork chops are super easy to make and you can always add an extra spoon of sauce if you need to disguise something.

Ingredients: 4 pork chops, 1/2 cup cream, 1/4 cup red wine, 1 tablespoon of paprika (also have a pinch of extra paprika to rub into the meat), salt and pepper to rub into the meat, vegetable oil for cooking the meat.

Heat a skillet with oil on medium heat

Rub a pinch of salt, paprika and pepper into the meat.When the oil is almost smoking (you can check by pouring a drop of water. If it hisses, the skillet is ready), add the meat. Cook on each side for around 7-10 minutes.

In a pan, on medium heat, add the cream and the wine

Add the paprika.

Let the sauce cook for 5 minutes. Once the meat is cooked, add 1/2 tablespoon of the liquid fat from the bottom of the skillet into the sauce. Whisk together.

Serve the pork chops with the sauce on top or on the side. Enjoy!
