Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: GINGER CIDER PORK CHOPS & CARROTS #Recipe from Karen’s Kitchen

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is GINGER CIDER PORK CHOPS & CARROTS !

When I went searching through my binders, I came across this old recipe that I haven’t made in forever. I have to fix that, just as soon as the current kitchen renovation is finished. This is a wonderful, savory way to make pork chops. It makes a great dish anytime, but I especially like it in the fall when I’m thinking of fresh produce and apple cider. I WILL be making this long before fall though, now that I’ve been reminded of the recipe.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

  1. Good afternoon Karen, your recipe sounds delicious, Thank you so much for sharing it. Have a great weekend and take care.

  2. This does sound delicious. I miss being able to get fresh cider from the press. It is so much better than the processed version you have to buy now. This recipe combines some favorite ingredients. Will be trying it soon.
