Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #Pork: WINTER PORK CHOPS 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 WINTER PORK CHOPS!!

These are called “winter” pork chops, but it’s because it includes apple cider and cinnamon, flavors which come front and center in the fall, and is basically a stew. However, this recipe can be made year round. It’s too delicious to be relegated to one season. Add some hot bread or buttered new potatoes and you’ve got a satisfying meal for the family!

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

    1. Honestly, I don’t know how I develop recipes. I pull out a meat and start throwing things together. I sometimes see recipes I fiddle with according to what I have in my fridge. I have a huge spice cabinet, too, and I experiment a lot. Don’t often get “fails”, although it’s been known to happen occasionally.This wasn’t one of them. LOL
