10/26/09 - Boneless Pork w Garlic Green Beans

Since I was in the mood on sunday I got these pork chops (center cut boneless) all marinaded using some of the Cindy's Kitchen Ancho Chipotle Vinaigrette which I love! These were a little thicker than the usual pork chops that I buy and because of that they needed a few extra minutes on the grill pan but the centers were so moist since the outsides were nicely seared.

The green beans are done in an asian style with some soy and garlic to give them a rich taste.

Garlic Green Beans
1 lb green beans - cleaned and ends snapped
1 tbsp reduced sodium soy
2 tbsp sesame seeds
3 cloves garlic - smashed and minced
1 small onion - sliced thin

3) Add beans, stir to coat with oil and let brown slightly - 2 min
4) Add soy sauce and 2 tbsp water - cover and reduce to med
5) Once tender remove from heat and add sesame oil - toss to coat
