Apologies for the blog absence. I spent my Christmas in Arkansas, then visited my sister in Texas. Now I’ll be heading to Virginia for work. I hope to keep up with my blog, but it will be a challenge to find the right balance and schedule. I love cooking and am excited to work on my photography with my new camera!
This recipe is a super simple, quick meal with classic vibrant Puerto Rican flavors–no sofrito needed! If you’re new to the blog, see my post on Puerto Rican Beans as to why I cook Puerto Rican food. 🙂
Pork chops are simmered until fork tender in a savory tomato broth. If you prefer, you can substitute chicken fillets. Serve over rice with a green side salad for a complete meal (recipe for Puerto Rican Rice
coming soon is now on the blog!). Happy New Year all!
