The recipe is a little labor intisive, but it was well worth it. Most of the time is in the preperation of the ingredients and the hurry up and wait in the brining.

  • Brined pork chop, stuffed with herb goat cheese, topped with a brandy pear balsamic glaze
  • Garlic mashed potatoes
  • Roasted asparagus with pear balsamic vinegar
  • Cheesey garlic bread
