This is yet another fabulous recipe from Lucinda. Watching her prepare it (and re-watching the video on this site) always helps tremendously. I miss you Lucinda, your simple eloquence and family friendly recipes! This made 2 of my 3 children pork chop lovers. The pork chops taste restaurant-quality (heating the cast iron skillet well and TEMPERING THE MEAT!!). Whenever I use these kinds of tips (sprinkling salt from a distance, etc) I think of Mad Hungry! 5 stars!
I just made this recipe but I did not have raisins or broccoli rabe. I did have dried cranberries and kale which I used in place of the other ingredients. It was delicious! The pork chops were succulent and cooked perfectly, the cranberries added a sweetness that complemented the pork, and the kale absorbed the saltiness of the anchovies. This is a recipe that I will add to my repertoire. I am so glad that I have found Mad Hungry; it is my new favorite cooking show.
