Pork Loin with Mushrooms

January 25, 2011 at 1:40 AM (Nutrition, Recipes)

Tonight’s meal was quite good. I had a thought in mind and it turned out quite well.

Ingredients:

4 medium boneless pork loin chops, lean

1 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Oil

1/4 cup warm water

2 8-oz packages sliced mushrooms

6 oz white onion, thinly sliced

3 cloves garlic, finely minced or chopped

2 tbsp your choice meat rub

1 tsp Olive oil

1/3 cup organic brown rice flour

1 tbsp ground flax

First, rub down the chops with the olive oil, then sprinkle the meat rub. For tonight’s recipe I used a mesquite garlic rub. Coat each side well then put on a plate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

Heat 1 tbsp Toasted Sesame oil in a skillet, heat  on high for a few seconds. Add in the onions and minced garlic, stir together allowing the onions to soften.  Add the sliced mushrooms and 1/4 cup warm water, cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer until mushrooms and onions are tender. Once they are done, remove from pan, set aside in a bowl.

Take the chops from the fridge. In a shallow dish, mix the rice flour and the ground flax. The flax is optional, but it adds a nutty flavour to the mixture, as well as added fiber.  Coat each chop in the rice flour. There should be enough sesame oil still in the pan, if not add a teaspoon more and heat it up. Add the loin chops and cook on medium, turning each chop every few minutes until each side is nice and brown and the pork is cooked thoroughly. Once they are done, pour the cooked onions and mushrooms over the chops evenly, continue to cook on medium until the mushrooms and onions are nice and hot.

Serve with your choice of veggies on the side.  Tonight we had salads with pine nuts and diced cucumbers and homemade vinaigrette dressing.

    What’s “meat rub”?
    The whole thing does sound very tasty though. :O)

      it’s a powdery seasoning that you rub over the meat, as opposed to sprinkling salt and pepper. There are many flavour choices in the Spices section of the supermarket. The Mesquite I got was from the Garlic Festival booth at Ren Faire last year. 🙂
