Check out this delicious dinner of smoked pork chops, veggies, and homemade macaroni and cheese. Can you believe this took me less than 30 minutes including the time to cook the smoked pork chops and make the mac and cheese from scratch? With a few shortcuts a balanced family dinner is only half an hour away.
Smoked Pork Chops– Pork can be difficult to cook since eating undercooked pork can be dangerous, but overcooking drys it out. These smoked pork chops are precooked, so all you need to do is warm them up in a skillet or better yet, on the grill for about 5 minutes on each side. Can’t get much easier than that. If you can’t find them in your grocery store or just want to share the gift of delicious smoked meat, these smoked pork chops ship nationwide from Wisconsinmade.com.
Vegetables– Wondering what to serve with smoked pork chops? I am a big fan of frozen vegetables, in fact, I prefer them over fresh. Usually when it comes to food fresh is best, but frozen vegetables are picked at their peak and frozen right away to lock in freshness. Fresh grocery store vegetables have probably taken a long journey and lost some of their nutrients and tastiness. Stick with frozen and you’ll be surprised how tasty and easy adding a side of vegetables can be.
Mac and Cheese– You could always make this from the blue box, but I suggest trying this Stove Top Mac and Cheese recipe. It only takes a tiny bit more effort than the boxed stuff, but the results are amazing! Besides, if you are from Wisconsin, don’t you feel a little guilty using that mystery powder when you have so much real Wisconsin cheese available?
