Mushroom Pork Chops Ingredients

4 pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 pinch garlic salt, or to taste
¼ cup white wine
2 Tbsp oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (do a pound)
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

1. Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and garlic salt to taste.

and keep warm. Add the onion and saute until soft. Deglaze the pan with wine. When
wine has cooked down a bit, add soup and mix Then add mushrooms and return chops
to the pan. Cover skillet, and reduce temperature to medium-low. Simmer 20 to 30
minutes, or until chops are cooked through.
3. Serve over rice or noodles


For a one dish meal, I just put the pork chops in a 9×13 dish, pour in all
the ingredients, add potatoes and cover tightly with foil bake at 350 for
about 40-45 minutes. Big Hit at my house and really easy when you
don’t want to cook…which is pretty much every evening.
Can also make this in the crock pot. Put everything in (can add potato too) –
cook on low for 4 to 6 hours

Hot and Spicy Shrimp and Sausage Kabobs Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups North Country Basting Sauce (find recipe here)

Juice of 1/2 a medium lemon

2 tbsp minced onion

2 tbsp minced jalapeno peppers

1 pound hot Italian sausage

1 pound fresh large shrimp in the the shell


Blend the basting sauce, lemon juice, onion, and jalapeno peppers in a large bowl.  Set aside.

Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot.  Prick the sausage several times with a fork and then boil for 5 mins.  When cool enough to handle, cut into 1/2 inch slices and add to the marinade along with the shrimp.  Stir to coat well.  Cover and set aside for 1 hours; it may be refrigerated for several hours.

Preheat the grill to medium- high.  Thread four or five long skewers alternately with the shrimp and sausage.  Either grill or broil, far enough from the heat to prevent charring, for about 10 minutes total or until the shrimp are pink.  Turn occasionally during cooking and brush with more sauce.  And be sure to tell your guests that the shrimp is in the shell.


Yields about 4 servings.
