The title says it all. Hearty and straight forward. This was dinner on the first night of Edible Menu's existence so I thought it only fitting to incorporate it into the blog. This dish is amazingly flavorful and can essentially be made with only three ingredients; pork, onion, and tomato; but of course we'll throw in some salt, pepper, mustard, garlic, lemon, and scallions because we can!
Start with a thick, center-cut pork chop. Season with sea salt and crack pepper, then rub with dry mustard. Sprinkling with a touch of lemon juice and letting it sit out for 30 minutes will help add a nice zest as well. Render the fat side first, then sear each side for a few minutes (taking care not to burn the mustard powder).
Sweat about half an onion and a touch of garlic until transluscent and aromatic. Add in your tomatoes and simmer covered for about 12 minutes.
If you know how to peel tomatoes (concasse), it is recommended, but canned stewed tomatoes work just as well for this recipe. If you need to, remove your pork when the desired temperature has been reached and hold warm while continuing to reduce the tomatoes. Spoon the tomatoes over the pork and garnish with fresh cut scallions.
