NUESKE'S SMOKED PORK CHOPS
Santa Claus drove a van and wore a brown suit this year. Ms. Goofy knows I have a weakness for all pork products from Nueske's Meats from Wisconsin. They may make some of the best bacon in the nation. My Christmas stocking was filled with apple-wood smoked bacon and pork chops It was time to enjoy this Christmas bounty.
We opened the vacuum packed package of chops and were greeted with a pleasant sweet apple-wood aroma. A quick searing in a skillet and orzo, spices and stock was added. A trip to the oven to finish and we were ready to feast. These chops were fantastic. The sweet cure transformed this meat to a ham like texture. The smoke was slight and intoxicating. Nueske's pork products do not disappoint. Ms. Goofy know's what I like. Yummynoodles!!!!!
