What’s for dinner? Mushroom and Tomato Smothered Pork Chops

What's for dinner? Mushroom and Tomato Smothered Pork Chops | Sarcastic Cooking

This week’s edition of the series that I like to think is single-handedly bringing America back to the dinner table features a rendition of a dish my mom made for us all the time when we were growing up. In our house, they were called Polish pork chops. It says something when a dish successfully feeds a family of five and never gets complaints.

In fact, I tried to make my Mom’s version on the blog way back when. Follow this link if you want to see crappy pictures. Also, my Mom just informed me recently that I messed up the blog version because I used crushed tomatoes instead of canned diced tomatoes. Oops! Despite the first version being a little soupy, it was still good. Not my Mom’s version good, but good none the less. [Read more…]

Hey all! I hope everybody had a wonderful holiday and an uneventful New Year. Yeah, uneventful. Trust me, it is better than any drunken drama or shenanigans. I had a great Christmas and a Happy Netflix New Year. All was right in my world. Except…

As I watch buttloads of snow fall, I have a few choice words for Miss Mother Nature right now. I wanna tell you something! This is too little too late! Where was all this fluffy beautiful snow on Christmas? Don’t you know people have to get back to their lives after New Years? Ugh! Seriously.

Perfect Pulled Pork

You guys, close your ears if you don’t want to hear baby talk. The arrival of our little guy is six weeks, actually five weeks and four days away! Aaaaaaa! I am freaking out a little bit to say the least. I feel like I have so much to do before he gets here. My to-do list is ever-growing.

My dresser is backordered, all the baby clothes need washing, shelves need hanging, blog needs some maintenance, holiday recipes need to be created, carpets need cleaning, hospital bag needs packing, and so on and so on. Yes, all little things, but things nonetheless. [Read more…]

Crock Pot Pork Carnitas

Well, it is that time of year again. Summer, well not really. In my house it is the time of year I love and my husband loathes—cherry tomato season! Every single year, we get into at least one real argument about cherry tomatoes. I am totally serious.

This time of year, I start stocking up on these bite-size treasures. I add them to pastas, salads, sandwiches, tacos, and even snack on them alone. I just love that burst of fresh, seasonal tomato flavor. And that very taste explosion, is what Mike hates. [Read more…]
