DudeFood Tuesday: Spicy ovenroasted Porkchops

Schouderkarbonade |

Fellow dudes and DudeFood Kitchen buddies from all over the world, please lean a little closer to your computer (or keep your smartphone even more close to your face), cause I want to share a little secret with you.
For today is the 20th DudeFood Tuesday; that means a little anniversary, jay!
And if you think I’m wrong, just start counting the entries an you will end up with? How much? 22 entries? Yes you are right… and I am too.
Because the entry with the beerbuns was from the hand of the Misses, so that one doesn’t count as a real DudeFood entry. And the stuffed jalapenos was smeared over two entries, so actually that was one blog. So you’ll end up with: DudeFood Tuesday entry numero twenty, presto! Anniversary; Party time! Schouderkarbonade |

Well, it should have been a party at least, if not for unforeseen circumstances which threw some spanners in the DudeFood party works.
The thing most you probably already know is that I am still a wage slave for three days a week until the end of January.
This bloke uses the other days of the week in becoming a celebrated market trader of bottled and corked taste.
My boss at wage slave station is in the know and everything was hunky dory, but since last month he found out that I am priceless. So he doesn’t pay my salary anymore.
And what’s a wage slave without wages.. yep, just a slave. And to be honest I think that is a little below my dignity.
But with no money to buy ingredients for a banquet I had to be creative with this recipe.
I ended up with some budget meat: pork chops. This meat is excellent when you let it sweat for a couple of hours in a spicy marinade.
And the porkchops become really juicy when you put them in the oven. Easy recipe and yet some guaranteed impressive flavours.

ps. Ofcourse the Misses had to mind my business, especially when it came to the appearance of my oven roasted cutlets. So I had to bake one cutlet in the frying pan, only for generating a nice photo.
As if somebody wants discuss appearances of pork cutlet… when you just finished two or three pieces of that delicious ovenbaked meat. Anyway: the flavor of the oven cutlets was the best.

  1. Being asked to work for nothing is pretty common for food bloggers. 🙂 Hopefully everyone will learn to say no.

    I love these pork chops but I will admit to a quick scan of the email and thoughts, “OVER roasted pork chops? How is that possible?” Duh..

  2. Lovely spices! The kind of flavors I crave all the time…

    Happy Anniversary and to many more!

    Your boss should be reported. Nobody deserves to work for free!!!



  3. Morning Tom!

    Happy Anniversary. These look so good.

    My brother in the seventies backpacked across Europe.

    He started in Holland, landing on a holiday.

    The hostel was closed, but the lady in charge took pity on him, and took him in and gave him a bed and made him supper.

    She said she would make him a traditional Dutch supper.
    He was surprised when she brought him potatoes, pork chops and apple sauce.

    She asked him how he liked it, and was surprised when he told her ” It taste just like my Mom makes it.”

    They had a good laugh.

    I think I would tell Mr. Tightwad that I wasn’t coming back to work for him.

    Keep the recipes coming. I love this site with you and Simone.

    Have a Joyful Day :~D

  4. Good dude food! Love the green garnish on the photo. 😉 When I roast pork chops in the oven (best way to cook them IMO), I usually sear them first on the stovetop to develop great looks. Then finish them off in the oven. Get the great good looks of searing, and the ease of oven cooking that way. Win win!

  5. Dude, you want me go and rough up that slave driver for you…?
    Janie 😉

  6. Such a great char. I made pork chops in the oven last night. I missed the mark compared to these. GREG
