Recipe in: Pork and Lamb

Pork Amandine

Total time: 30 minutes
     Loaded with celery and almonds, this was a classic dish on the menu of the Chinese restaurant I worked with. I have added a bit more pork and ginger to my version and serve it over brown rice.

Pork Amandine Ingredients:


Brown Rice                              Time: 20 minutes or whatever your package says
  I use 'Uncle Ben's' which is all I can get and it is quick cooking.  It looks like brown Basmati and cooks in 15 minutes. If you can't get a quick cooking brown rice, and don't want to take the 40 minutes to cook the regular, you can substitute Basmati.

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Note:  Pork chops vary greatly in calories; this assumes top loin chops with fat trimmed but not completely removed.  Center cut chops are higher; sirloin cut chops are lower.

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.
