Cooking With LSP


So how do you cook with LSP? I hear you ask, in that incredulous way. Well, I'll tell you. Get a couple of thick pork chops with plenty of fat on them; rub salt, pepper and olive oil onto the chops, and let them sit while you preheat an oven to 400 degrees. Enjoy a glass of wine while you're at it, why not? 

Then heat up an iron skillet with some oil in it until the thing's smoking hot, and put the chops in the skillet. It'll smoke. Don't freak out, it's supposed to. Watch those chops fry, a minute a side, and enjoy the aroma of cooking pork as you test out the wine. Frying done, put the chops in the oven, in the skillet. I like to add a good slice of butter on them at this point, but that's just me.

Let the meat cook for 4 minutes max, 2 minutes a side, then remove the skillet from the oven. Place the chops aside, under tinfoil, and get that skillet on a hot burner. Add chicken broth, some crushed garlic, and a bit of rosemary to the pork drippings. Maybe tip some wine in, just for kicks, and thicken with flour as you whisk away like a PR spin. Cut the sauce with lemon juice, if you like, to taste.

Put the chops on a plate. Add mashed potatoes and some other vegetable, like yellow squash, or carrots, and pour the gravy. Behold the glory of the chops, say grace, and eat your food like a champion.

And that's cooking, with...

LSP.

The chops were VERY tasty, LL. Made a change from posting about golems...

I'm all for a lovely wrench photo... but it doesn't quite live up to the meal you just described.
I hereby request a re-do with a picture of the final product -- veggies, gravy, and all! (Don't suffer too much in the making.)

What about frickaseed golums? How do they taste? Are they better parboiled? These are all legitimate questions.
