Cast Iron Skillet Naan

Although I have never been to an Indian restaurant, I do know about Naan bread. Cast Iron Skillet Naan is my nod to Naan.

Cast Iron Naan Bread

Naan has a light flavor and soft texture that makes this a popular choice as a vessel for scooping up the remains of our chosen dish. Not being familiar with Indian food I understand it is served with many an Indian meal.

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

Most days the last thing many of you want to do is worry about dinner, or worry about how you can get dinner on the table quickly. Thin cut meat is the answer to those who are short on time. They cook in virtually minutes no matter the application.

Having a crispy coating on meat or fish is a must in my book. To get that crispy exterior usually means a dipping station…..flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Who has time for all that, and the mess….ugh!

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

On a whim, I tried spreading mustard on some thin cut chops and then dipped them in seasoned panko breadcrumbs. They fried up perfectly. And in record time. It took all of 6 minutes. The side dishes took longer!

Quick Crispy Dijon Pork Chops

The beauty of this dish is it can be used on chicken or fish also. Be sure to use very thin cut meats or the panko will burn before the meat is done.

Quick Crispy Dijon Prok Chops are your new go-to dinner when you are short on time, but still, want a scrumptious meal that your whole family will love.
