2. Add 1/2 cup (as needed) soy sauce, 1/4 cup rice vinegar, pepper, pinch of salt, and garlic salt in to the container of cubed steak. Mix well.

  1. Put 3 cups of flour, 2 dry yeast packets, 1/4 cup white sugar and add 3/4 cups of water in a baking bowl. Mix until you get clay like dough texture (you have to keep adding water until all powder is mixed, I usually use 1/4 cup at a time). {I mix everything with my hands.}
  2. Add 1/4 cup of olive oil with dough and mix again.
  3. Add another 1/4 cup of olive oil (do not mix) in with dough ball and close with plastic wrap or some sort of cover. IMG_6919
  4. Leave dough to rise btw 45mins-1hr.
  5. While waiting you can chop up block of Mozzarella (if you didn’t buy them cubed). As it gets closer to when the dough is finish rising. Melt the butter and crush the clove of garlic (oregano optional). Mix together.
  6. Once dough rises. Sprinkle some flour into dough and on open surface to kneed the dough. {Use those muscles!}

    Steps 6

  7. Leave large ball of dough in the bowl and just tear piece to make small balls for individual rolls. {How much dough you use determines how many rolls you get in the end.}
  8. Use rolling pin to roll out the small piece of dough ball to make it flat. {I never make a perfect circle, that’s just me}
  9. Place pepperoni and mozzarella in to rolled out dough. {You can put as much pepperoni and cheese as the dough can hold.}

    As instructed on step 9 

     
  10.  Close the dough around the pepperoni and cheese (if there’s a slight tear or opening, thats ok you can leave it or try to patch it up. It doesn’t have to be perfect). {Repeat until all the dough is gone. If you have extra pepperoni and cheese you can eat it or save it for later or use it for something else.}
  11. Preheat oven to 350º. Spread melted butter garlic on each roll. Then place in the oven for 25-20mins.

  12. After time is finished take it out and enjoy!{You can buy marinara sauce, or if you know how to make it yourself that’s great, or do what I do and use pasta sauce (just warm it up)}

Pork Chop Crunch

This recipe I made up, by ‘made up’ I mean I didn’t look up a recipe. I’m sure someone has already made it somewhere out there, its fast and easy. One of the many quick dinner’s I make. I will also show some basic sides to make to go with the meat.

Ingredients:

  1. Thin Cut Pork Chops (honestly can use any cut of pork chops)
  2. Veggies: Green Beans & Broccoli
  3. Starch: Tater tots (frozen)
  4. Panko
  5. Vegetable Oil
  6. Coconut Oil/Olive Oil
  7. Salt & Pepper
  8. Thyme
  9. Rosemary
  10. Parsley
  11. 2 large eggs (for 5 thin cut pork chops, add more if required) 

Prep/Cooking Time: Approximately 30-45mins

  1. Take 2 pans, put vegetable oil in one and coconut oil in the other, (I don’t really use measure to scale when I cook. I use what I believe is enough and add as I go) I would say to cover the whole pan. {You can also substitute the coconut oil with olive oil or even vegetable oil, we are using it for the veggies, so it’s a matter of health and taste.} Heat the oils on the pan as you prep the meal. {At this time, preheat the oven for the tots to whatever the instructions say on the bag}IMG_6643
  2. Rinse the veggies and cut them. Add the veggies with the coconut oil. Mix for consistency. Then set aside to settle.
  3. Rinse the pork chops (I always rinse my meats). Add salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary on the pork (front and back).
  4. Get a 2 separate containers. One for the 2 eggs (mix) lightly add salt & pepper. One to put Panko crumbs in (preferably these containers should fit the size of your pork chops).
  5. {Add the tots in the oven whenever preheat is finished.}

  6. Go back to your veggies and add: salt, pepper, parsley, & thyme. Mix for consistency. Let it settle and cook. {Make sure to always go back and mix to prevent from burning}
  7. Take the mixed eggs dip pork chops in front and back. Then to the next container with the Panko crumbs, dip front and back. Place directly into the hot vegetable oil pan. {Repeat for each pork chop}

    I find it easy to have it as a station to prevent spilling

    8. Cook until Panko’s are brown and meat is cook (145ºF). Veggies until mid texture (not too soft and still has a crunch). {Take tots out when finished}

    You have your dinner, “Pork Chop Crunch meal!”
