Another one for the make-again file

Overall, I have to say I haven't been all that impressed with Everyday Food. It all looks good, but most the recipes are just OK. Nothing spectacular. Up until last night, all I liked from the magazine was the Giant Sugar Cookies.

But I found another I liked. Glazed pork with mango salsa. All it is is a bone-in pork chop with about a tablespoon of adobo sauce spread on it and sprinkled with about 1 tsp of brown sugar. Then you broil until the thickest part of the chop is 155°, about 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, you dice a mango, 1/2 a small red onion, mince a jalapeno (taking out the seeds and ribs first!) and then mix that together with some lime juice and s&p. The mango salsa isn't shown by the way.

I served it with baby arugula and cucumbers tossed with a dressing made of evoo, red wine vinegar, s&p, honey and cardamom. It was from the same issue as the pork chops. All in all, it's pretty good!

Looks good. Another real simple coating for pork chops to brush them with mustard while grilling/broiling then finish them by sprinkling them with a little brown sugar right at the end.
