Roasted boneless center cut pork chops with red wine– a super easy and delicious recipe to make when you have no inspiration on what to cook for dinner.
I don’t know about you, but I associate the roasted pork aromas with holidays, cold seasons and comforting foods. Pork is a relatively cheap meat to buy and I cook with it quite a bit.
Born in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Romania, I grew up eating pork. Pork is a popular item in the Romanian cuisine, therefore there are plenty of recipes to choose from.
This is a super easy and delicious recipe to make when you have absolutely no inspiration on what to cook for dinner. OR, it is the middle of the week and you have to come up with a fast dinner for your family.
You don’t need a lot of ingredients, it is easy to make, healthy and also very delicious. Serve it with a green salad and you are here for a feast. Leftovers are great too.
I make this recipe quite often and use different pork cuts. This time I made it with boneless center cut pork chops, but you can use anything you have available.
Also, I had a bottle of red wine sitting in the kitchen so I decided to use it up. I cook with wine quite a bit. I love the taste of roasted meat in the oven with a sauce made out of garlic, spices and red wine.
You can make this recipe for a special occasion or just for a regular dinner. It looks good and it is also delicious.
Serve the roasted meat with roasted or mashed potatoes, French fries, new potatoes with dill and butter, salad, steamed vegetables or anything you like. We had them with roasted vegetables and a red cabbage salad.
