Cooking With C.H.O.I.C.E.S Kids Class Week 6
Guess what day it is? It’s time for our Tuesday Recipe Spotlight. Our class on last week was a bit different. The kids and parents all met at the local Walmart close to the facility where they were assigned the task of purchasing a meal under $12. The kids actually had to find a recipe or create one that would allow them to feed the entire family for under their allocated amount. The evening began with the entire class gathered inside the front of the store where Kris Favers, Marketing Account Manager with Amerigroup RealSolutions in healthcare spoke with the kids.
Mario decided to sit this class out because he wanted to watch Flash (Go Figure) so Billy and I went shopping without him (hence him missing from the pictures).
Billy found a recipe online (www.bhg.com) that he wanted to recreate but the issue that we found was that the Brussel sprouts there were disgusting looking so he opted to change the recipe a little to use fresh broccoli instead which worked out perfectly. So BJ set off to grab his ingredients while vowing to stay under his $12 budget. The families all set out on their ways to shop for the necessary ingredients to create their meals.
Billy decided to prepare Pork Cutlets with Broccoli. Honestly I was a bit skeptical about how it would taste since he was doing it alone with minimum help from me but I also excited to see what he would actually create. I mean would it look presentable to eat or what? LOL
4 1/2 inch boneless pork cutlets
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons paprika or smokes paprika
1 pound fresh broccoli
2 tablespoons butter
1 8oz carton light sour cream
2 tablespoons milk or half-and-half
1 teaspoon packed brown sugar
- In a shallow dish combine flour, half the paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Coat pork cutlets in flour mixture; set aside.
- In large skillet steam broccoli over medium heat for 10 minutes. Remove from the skillet.Cover and keep warm.
- In the same skillet add butter. Cook pork chops 4 to 4 minutes, turning once, until golden outside and slightly pink in the center. Remove from skillet. Cover; keep warm.
- For the sauce, combine sour cream, milk, and brown sugar. Whisk into skillet. Heat through (do not boil). Serve sauce, sprinkled with remaining paprika, over pork and broccoli. Makes 4 servings
Can you say Amazing! This dish was the BOMB.COM! Needless to say that their was absolutely no complaints and plates were clean! Way to go BJ!! So what I am thinking is that every Tuesday the kids should do all of the cooking. Moms do you agree?
