I love being first for anything. Except perhaps bungy jumping, getting a tooth pulled or skiing off the edge of climax at Mammoth Mountain. Anything else goes! That is why I decided to post what I had for dinner tonight, so I could be first on the Saturday Stirrings post at www.fiddledeedee.net.
PORK CHOPS AND ORZO
4 pork chops
1 T olive oil
1 cup orange marmalade
2 T soy sauce
1/2 c beef broth (you can use chicken)\
4 scallions chopped
1 cup orzo
1 quart water
In a skillet, heat oil. Salt/Pepper pork chops and cook on both sides until golden (about 2 min). In a small bowl combine the rest of ingredients and pour over pork chops. Heat through for 5 minutes.
Bring water to boil in sauce pan. Add salt and orzo. Stir and let it cook in gently boiling water for 8 - 10 minutes. Drain.
Serve orzo on plate, topped with pork chop. Ladle sauce over both and top with scallions!
