Ginger Pork Chops With Spinach Salad

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  2. 4 thick boneless pork loin chops
  3. Salt and pepper
  4. 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
  5. 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  6. 6 ounces (half of a 12-ounce can) frozen lemonade concentrate
  7. 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  8. One 6-ounce bag baby spinach
  9. 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  10. Balsamic vinegar, for drizzling

Directions

  1. In a heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Rub both sides of each pork chop with salt, pepper, and the fresh ginger. Add to the skillet and cook for 1 minute, then cover, lower the heat to medium, and cook for 10 minutes.
  3. Flip the chops, cover and cook until brown, 10 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Reserve the skillet.
  4. Set aside 1 cup strawberries for the salad.
  5. Add the remaining strawberries, lemonade concentrate, ground ginger, and 3/4 cup water to the skillet and stir to combine.
  6. Bring to a boil over high heat, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook, stirring, and smashing the berries, until the sauce is thick and reduced to about 1 cup, about 5 minutes.
  7. Divide the spinach among 4 plates and top with the goat cheese and reserved strawberries. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Place a pork chop on each plate and top with the strawberry-lemonade sauce.

Serves 4.
