Grilled Pork Chops

Grilled Pork Chops

Not only that, you are going to love these flavorful grilled pork chops, but I can promise you will make them all the time.


Grilled Pork Chops

 

Now, you will need any kind of grill to make them, of course. However, you can use your air fryer as well; 400F for 25-30 minutes depending on your preferences.

 

I love my pork chops well done. Also, I like bits of burned pieces around the bone and meat in the middle tender. I think that’s my family preference as well. We eat this all summer long.

 

Sometimes I make extra so we could have it during the week. They are just amazing to mix with rice. I usually eat it cauliflower rice since I am most of the time eating low-carb.

Grilled Pork Chops

 

I just cannot believe that I’ve never posted this recipe before. With ten years of blogging, sometimes we ignore the simplest recipes. This one does not require too much work or to have culinary school, but it is delicious, and I am sure you will enjoy it also.

 

Grilling is my jam. I just love grilled food and could eat it every single day. What is your favorite food from the grill? I have so many, but definitely, burgers and ribs are at the top two, but I also love, love grilled fish.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish is easy, simple, and satisfies all the craving for fish and chips.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

 

You could defiantly make thicker French fries or steak fries, which reminds me the most of the British chips. My kids are mad about these air-fryer potatoes. These potatoes look as they should, rusting and homemade. You cannot even compare homemade to store-bought french fries.

 

Anyways, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make this fantastic classic dish, just a bit of patience, a few tools, great ingredients, and tasty fish.

 

My family loves and enjoyed fish recipes, so I was surprised to see leftovers, but I was so happy to have several pieces.

 

My youngest one and I had a fantastic brunch the next day. We make tasty sandwiches, which was extremely satisfying.

Classic Beer Battered Fried Fish

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes

An easy and simple recipe for Fish & Chips.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 thick cod fillets
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 egg whites, whipped
  • 1.5 cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder (for the color)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 170ml dark beer (6oz)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep fryer
  • Lemon wedges and tartar sauce

Instructions

  1. Prep fish first. If the fillets are long and seem larger then slice into smaller fillets. Lay the fish fillets on a couple of kitchen towel sheets and pat dry very well. Season fish fillets with sea salt. Just a good pinch for each fillet.
  2. Add cornstarch to the plate and dip each filet on both sites into cornstarch, shake off any excess. Set aside.
  3. At this point turn the oil to heat. It should be at the oil temperature is still 350 degrees.
  4. Mix 2 egg whites with your electric mixer until you see peaks; set aside.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, a good pinch of salt, turmeric. Mix it well to combine dry ingredients.
  6. Add beer to the flour mixture and continue mixing until you have a thick, smooth batter.
  7. Fold egg whites into the batter. Beaten egg whites give this batter its leavening strength as well as its structural quality. It forms fluffy, tender pouches around the fish.
  8. Carefully, drop each fillet into the hot oil. Fry for approximately 10 minutes, or until the batter is crisp and golden, turning the fillets from time to time with a large slotted spoon.
  9. Once cooked, remove the fillets from the hot oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  10. Transfer fish to a large baking pan, then place it into 350 degrees preheated oven. This will finish the fish and keep the beer batter crispy. This is also how you will reheat your fish. 350F for 10 to 15 minutes.
  11. Once ready, sprinkle fish of sea salt and serve with lemon slices and tartar sauce.


For the Chips:

2 pounds of potatoes

1 quart/1 liter vegetable oil (or use air fryer)

POTATOES

AIR FRIER METHOD:

  1. Cut the potatoes a bit thicker. they should look more like steak fries.
  2. Place the chips into a colander and rinse under cold running water.
  3. Pat dry potato slices and add to the air fryer basket.
  4. Cook at the pre-setting or like me at 375F for 17-20 minutes depending on potatoes, as well as air-fryer.

*You can fry them your skillet, in batches with 1/2 cup of oil, or deep fryer with 30+ oz of oil or like me, you could use your air-fryer. Note that it is not the same as deep frying but it does the job if you wish to avoid fried potatoes.

Notes

Your Questions:

Can I air fryer for the last step instead of my oven?

YES! You can certainly use your air fryer.

I don't use beer, what else I could use as a substitute?

You may use nonalcoholic beer or seltzer water.

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs is a comfort soup at its best. Perfect for cold days, but we love it all year round.

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

This meal definitely feeds mia famiglia very well and on the budget, if I might add.

It’s rich, comforting, satisfying, a pinch spicy and a whole lot tasty. So, I have a question for you, what’s not to like?

You got cheese pasta aka tortellini, spicy meatballs, and magical broth with spinach. Not only that you will like the taste but the fact that it is super easy to prepare.

I do not think you will need more than 30 minutes even if you are going slower to make it.

Also, you can keep it in the fridge for up to 3 days without losing the taste.

However, in that case, I would add a splash of water if needed because it might get thicker.

Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

I have made this one so many times and my family really likes it just the way it is.

Sometimes I would just saute Italian sausage ground meat or if I am feeling extra good I roll meatballs. I explained that part in the recipe below.

Now, if you do not eat meat you could replace it with mushrooms for extra umami. Perhaps a few different kinds just to have options.

In my recipes, there is always an alternative. Not all of us like or eat everything so I understand it very well.

Mushrooms will always be an excellent meat replacement as well as beans so just experiment.

Delicious and easy recipe for Tortellini Soup with Italian Sausage Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground Italian sausage,
  • 1/2 cup diced onion about 1/2 medium-sized onion
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 28 ounces canned tomatoes (crushed or use tomato sauce)
  • 32 ounces chicken broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 pack frozen spinach (I use cream of spinach sometimes) or 2 cups of fresh
  • 9 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

Instructions

  1. I like making smaller meatballs from Italian sausage meat, but you do not have to at all. Also, you can get one in a casing like links, just peel it off. Whatever is easier for you.
  2. Brown all the meatballs (or Italian sausage meat) then take them out on the pot. you can brown them in batches or use wide enough pot to fit all.
  3. In the same pot, add onion, celery, garlic and cook for 4-5 minutes at medium-high temperature.
  4. Add tomato (crushed or sauce), chicken broth and season it to taste. Add herbs and spinach.
  5. Cook until boils then add Italian sausage meatballs back in the soup.
  6. Add frozen tortellini and cook until the cheese tortellini are cooked. They will start to float.
  7. Add heavy cream, but it's not necessary. It tastes just as good without it. Taste and see if you need more seasoning.
