Pork Chops in Creamy Garlic Spinach Sauce

Most of the times I am so organized that I have a shopping list based on the menu I will be serving at home for a week’s period, this ensures that I don’t buy anything that I would not really use. Sometimes that is not the case specially when I am so busy or lazy which ends up in a “pick whatever you want” in the supermarket aisle, not a good practice as you tend to pay more than what you usually do, plus you will have random things you never know how to prepare together.

It was one of those days where I randomly picked some produce because they look fresh, nice or cheap and that gave me this thick cut shoulder chops which was nicely marbled, some medium sized spinach and a cheap bottle of white wine.

Now it’s just a matter of preparing them in one dish and make something delicious out of it, which brings me to this menu we have today. A simple pan fry of pork shoulder chops served in a sauce made with white wine, cream, garlic and wilted spinach.

    Pork chops and creamy sauces are ideal together. Love the idea of spinach — a bit different, and really tasty. Thanks!
