Friday Foodday

Happy Friday! And a long weekend at that! Here are my favorite recipes this week!

White Sangria with Peaches & Plums
c/o The Kitchn
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 cup sliced peaches, skins left on
1 cup sliced plums, skins left on
1 cup cherries, stemmed and pitted
1/2 cup peach brandy
1 750-ml bottle dry Riesling, chilled

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water, and heat just until the sugar is dissolved to make a simple sugar syrup. Place the peaches, plums, and cherries in a large pitcher and pour the sugar syrup over top.
Add the peach brandy and stir. Add the cold Riesling and chill until ready to serve, ideally overnight. When ready to serve, fill the rest of the pitcher with ice.
Serve over ice, being sure to serve some of the stone fruit in each glass.

Cuban Mojo Grilled Pork Chops
  • 10 cloves garlic
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups sour orange juice (1 cup orange juice + 1/2 cup lime juice)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin, toasted and ground
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 pound pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced

  1. Puree the garlic, onion, sour orange juice, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper in a food processor or blender, place 1/2 of the mixture into a large sealable bag with the pork chops and marinate in the fridge overnight.
  2. Heat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high heat, add the pork chops and cook until lightly golden brown on one side, about 3-5 minutes, flip them and cook until the pork chops are done, about 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add the onions and cook until just tender, about 5 minutes, add the remaining mojo sauce, bring to a simmer and remove from heat.
  4. Serve the grilled pork chops covered in the mojo and onion sauce and enjoy!
