Recaito Pork Chops With Fried Potatoes and Onions

Recaito Pork Chops


4 boneless pork chops (about 1 1/4 lb)
1 teaspoon Complete seasoning
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
4 fresh garlic cloves
1 cup recaito seasoning sauce
1/2 cup white cooking wine
1 lime (for juice, rinsed)
1 cup tomato trinity mix (fresh tomatoes, onions, bell peppers)
1 tablespoon brown sugar

1. Season both sides of pork chops with Complete seasoning (wash hands).
2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2–3 minutes. Place oil in pan; swirl to coat. Add pork chops (wash hands); cook 2–3 minutes on each side or until browned. Meanwhile, chop garlic finely.
3. Reduce heat to medium; stir in garlic, recaito, and wine. Squeeze juice of lime over pork chops; cook 5–7 minutes, turning once, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F (for medium). Use a meat thermometer to accurately ensure doneness.
4. Remove pork from pan; set aside. Place tomato trinity and brown sugar in pan; cook 2–3 minutes, stirring often, or until sugar dissolves and vegetables are softened. Return pork chops to pan, turning to coat with sauce. Serve sauce over pork chops.

Aprons Advice

Recaito is a mild, cilantro-based Mexican seasoning sauce that also makes a perfect match with chicken or skirt steaks. For added spiciness, add a chopped serrano pepper to the finished sauce.
