Valentine's Pork Chop

Let me start by saying I did not celebrate Valentine's Day this year...

It has either lost its meaning for me.. or I am still trying to find the meaning of love..

Either way, it did not mean I couldn't have a bit of fun in the kitchen. Thank you Pearl for indirectly pushing me to make something out of a boring day..

And I present to you my 1st attempt at Pork Chop!

Since I've been critical of foods around the country, its time I got a dose of my own medicine.

The main item consisting of the pork loin marinated in Lee Kum Kee BBQ sauce was flavorful but was a bit salty. My inexperience also resulted in the meat being dry.

Side dishes comprised of Spicy Taiwan Sausage, Mashed Potatoes, Mixed Vegetables, and Garlic Bread.

The Taiwan Sausage, bought from the supermarket and marinated with chili powder, black pepper and lemon gives it one hell of a zang taste! My thanks to Pearl for the preparation of the potatoes, vegetables and garlic bread. Light, simple, tasty and healthy! =)

All in all, although I was disappointed in how the pork loin came out, I'm determined to master the art of cooking up the ultimate chops the world has to offer! So watch out, rubinho is on fire!

Happy Valentine's Day to those who got something out of it. And it doesn't matter if you didn't have a date, its how you spent the day that matters.
