Smothered Pork Chops, Summer Squash w/ Rosemary Gremolata

I got my first basket of organic Carnation grown fruit and veggies from Full Circle and could not wait to create something delicious and healthy for dinner!   So I decided to go for Smothered Pork Chops with Full Circle Summer Squash with a Rosemary and Garlic Gremolata.  Here's how I did it. 

First, look at this beautiful summer squash from Full Circle!  They can deliever this right to your door step on a weekly basis.  And if you order 4 weeks NOW, you get one week free!   Use the special promo code word "WOLF" to get your FREE produce! 



I sliced the gorgeous summer squash length wise removing the ends.  Now for the gremolata.  You need garlic, salt, rosemary, lemon zest.  Chop the garlic, rosemary, and lemon zest together, then add the salt and begin to make a paste of sorts out of the mixture.



Now, coat a little olive oil and pepper on the summer squash, then add the gremolata mixture to it.  Then bake at 425 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes.  You want the squash to retain some of it's texture.  You don't want it to cook until it gets soggy. 



While the summer squash is baking, I prepare the Smothered Pork Chops by patting them dry.  Then coating them with salt, pepper, and olive oil.  I add olive oil to a large pan, and brown the chops on medium heat for 4 - 5 minutes per side.  Remove the chops, then add 2 tablespoons of flour.   Stir until it is incorporated.  Then add 1 cup of chicken stock and fresh lemon juice, and let the mixture reduce.  Place chops back in the pan, and let them heat through.  Get ready for a yummy dinner!  I added roasted brocolli, and we had a tasty organic dinner with help from my friends at Full Cirlce!  Order your first basket today!  Click on this link ... do it for your family and for your health!
