Tasty Tuesday & Delectable Tuesday!

Hey Y'all! Sorry I didn't write more last night I ran to Hastings and bought me When in Rome and Knight and Day. If you love used movie deals they have buy one used get next used for $1. I was pretty happy. Then I stopped by Hobby Lobby! Awful idea I think I could get lost and spend all my money in that store. Therefore I have decided I need a job that I make lots of money so I can spend it all at Hobby Lobby and Michael's! I will take a picture of what all I got but it is for Valentine's Day! All of their Valentine's Day stuff is 30% off! So go while you can! I got a cookie pan for Valentine shaped cookies, heart box and heard stuffing to send my grandparents some cookies, and cupcake Valentine box carriers for under $20! I could have spent so much more but I had to make myself leave! Then I went home and made Adam some more green chili stew and cornbread! 

Anyway I decided to join Tasty Tuesday! blog hop and the Delectable Tuesday! blog hop! You guys should check them out! I will post a button for them after my recipe!

Pork Chops & Green Beans & Mushroom Soup
Pork Chops
Soy Sauce
Onion Flakes
Frozen Green Beans
1 Can Mushroom Soup

1. I personally like the really thin pork chops but it is up to you what one you chose. Anyway I usually have them in the freezer so I put them in a big Ziplock Freezer bag and I fill the sink with hot water. 
Then I pour enough soy sauce in the bag to cover them when they are laying in the water and then I pour in some garlic powder. Now how much on both you use is up to you I always say the more the better.
2. After the pork chops have thawed, line a baking pan with aluminum foil. Now I cook mine on 375 but it seems to vary on different pork chop recipe's so up to you! 
3. Put the pork chops on the baking pan and throw away the extra juice. I like to make sure mine has some juice on them when I pull them out of the bag. 
4. Sprinkle pepper, garlic and onion flakes on top of the pork chops. Once again up to you how much I think it taste really good with a lot of garlic :-). But then again I LOVE garlic.
5. I usually cook mine about 30-45 minutes. My oven cooks super fast so I just go by how they look I usually know they are done when the excess juice has turned brown around them, but once again depends on how well done you like your pork chops. 
6. While these are cooking I have a skillet heating with a small amount of oil in it. Then I grabbed abuot three or four handfuls (depending on how much you want to eat and if you want left overs
I think they are great leftovers for lunch at work!) then I let them cook on a little under medium heat for 7 minutes, or until all the white from them being frozen is gone, but 7 minutes is perfect time.
7. Then I pour about 1/4 cup of water into the skillet and immediately cover with the lid and let it cook on low for 15 minutes. 
8. After the 15 minutes is up I remove the lid and pour in soy sauce and garlic (again as much as you want to) I usually pour in quite a bit so it coats them nice. 
9. Then turn up the heat to somewhere between medium heat and high heat, I usually lean to the higher
heat side so that I can get the juice to cook better. By this I mean you will usually 
cook the green beans until almost all of the soy sauce and remaining water has evaporated so that the green beans are coated in a nice soy sauce garlic mixture, I always leave a little 
extra juice.
10. While the pork chops and green beans are cooking I have a can of mushroom soup cooking on the stove while it is going on. I use Campbell's and I pour the can in the pot and then fill the empty can up with milk and pour that in with it. I cook it on medium heat until it boils, but be very careful it overflows 
extremely easy, I let it happen before! So don't turn your back on it! Once it boils I turn it down to very low so it stays warm and make sure to continuously stir or it will stick. 

Here is how your pork chops should look :-) 

11. Then when they are all done you can either pour the mushroom soup over your pork chops or eat it on the side, I tend to do both.
12. Eat and enjoy :-).
