Tender Roasted Pork Chops and Broccoli With Mushroom Tarragon Sauce
I found this recipe on Real Simple magazine's website. The tarragon sauce looked intriguing, but the dish seemed to lack some substance. I didn't want to use the heavy cream, I'm just not a fan of frisee, and I wanted some veggies to go with that wonderful sounding sauce.
To the rescue comes broccoli florets and crimini mushrooms! They added so much more color and flavor to the meal, but was I happy yet? Not quite.
I don't know about you, but it always seems that the recipes I try never have enough pan sauce, so I skipped the cream and used lowfat milk and chicken broth. Added my favorite Wondra (just a tinch), now I had enough sauce to cover the veggies too, without adding a ton of calories and fat to the dish.
Colorful, with lots of healthy ingredients and plenty of sauce, now that's a meal.
