pan roasted bok choy with crunchy garlic

I pan roasted bok choy in a 425° oven with avocado oil, crunchy garlic (in chili oil). It’s not overly spicy, it tastes great if you want more spice add some crushed red pepper. Add some kosher salt and enjoy. This is a great dish to serve with Fried Rice, Chicken Lo Mein, and Brown Sugar Soy Chicken.

Serve up these deliciously grilled pork chops with your favorite side dishes:

I served the pork with rice, bok choy sauteed in crunchy chili oil, carrots, and snow peas, drizzled with Bachans Japanese BBQ Sauce, which is also a great option for using for the marinade if you don’t want to make/mix your own marinade.

Make a second batch of sauce to top meat with, drizzle with soy sauce, add some sriracha.

grilled pork MEAL PREP with rice and vegetables

I meal prep and make between 12 and 20 meals at at time. We eat some that day, or out of the fridge and then I freeze them to eat at a later time if needed. It saves a ton of time and money each week. I sure wish I would have done more of this when my kids were younger. 

Everyone loves a hot fresh homemade meal, without additives and preservatives. This is a great way to have delicious food on hand!

Be sure to use a meat thermometer so the pork chops will be cooked without becoming dry. Boneless pork chops have very little fat, so cook them until the internal temperature of the pork is 145°. I love this thermometer, it’s instant read, so you don’t have to worry about burning your hands holding a thermometer over an open flame longer than needed.
