The classic entree created by Seth for the Second Challenge. It tastes (way) better then it looks (and to be fair, when they served it it looked way better than this photo).

Ingredients:

8 thin boneless pork chops (about 1-1/4 lb.)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 Tbs. unsalted butter

1 cup seedless red grapes, cut in half

1/2 cup dry red wine

1 tsp. chopped fresh rosemary

1/2 cup homemade or low-salt canned chicken broth

Do this:

  1. Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 1 Tbs. of the butter in a large (at least 10-inch) heavy skillet on medium-high heat. When the butter has stopped foaming, add four of the pork chops and sear until the edges are browned and the middles are just beginning to brown, 1-1/2 to 2 minutes. Flip the chops and cook until just cooked through, 30 to 60 seconds.
  3. Transfer the pork to a plate and cover with foil. Repeat with the remaining chops and transfer to the plate.
  4. Add the grapes, wine, and rosemary to the skillet and bring the mixture to a boil, scraping the skillet with a wooden spoon to incorporate the browned bits into the sauce. Boil until syrupy, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken broth and any accumulated juices from the pork chops and boil the sauce, stirring occasionally, until reduced by about half, another 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and add the remaining 2 Tbs. butter. Swirl the butter around in the pan until melted. Serve the chops topped with the sauce and enjoy!

Help Fund An Adventure For Good

Well folks, we are on the road! Thanks to over 200 individual and business supporters we have a beautiful bus, some functional production equipment, and enough money to get across the country on ramen, waste vegetable oil, and home-cooked meals whenever they present themselves. We can not appreciate those contributors enough: thanks to everyone who has given so far we are on the adventure of a lifetime and spreading optimism across the nation. We desperately need money for emergency situations (our bus has already broken down once), to contribute to causes across the country (we have a little...we would like a lot), and to make our trip that much healthier (greens are expensive). So check out the site, and contribute if you would like to support three young men on an Adventure for Good.
