The other day I took a break from my weekly dinner ideas brainstorming session and I did something I usually only do about once per decade – I cleaned out the spice cabinet. Inside, I discovered little bottles of red, brown and yellow powder that I had no recollection of ever using. (I still have no idea what turmeric and marjoram are, but I must have needed them in 2006 for something.)
Long story short: I like cooking with spices, I just don’t like dealing with all those bottles and measuring spoons. That’s also one reason why I’m a big fan of new products like Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. The little cubes of deliciousness (you’ll find them at Walmart in the dairy aisle with the butter) combine butter, olive oil, and a variety of herbs and spices into a convenient square that cooks and flavors chicken, fish or pork in one easy step.
Sauté Express® Sauté Starter are available in five flavors – Savory Butter & Olive Oil, Italian Herb, Garlic & Herb, Teriyaki, and Lemon Pepper. In other words, a little something for every taste and just what you need for an easy chicken recipe or a quick dinner recipe.
I picked up a package of Savory Butter & Olive Oil, which contains six squares of the super simple flavored butter, to use with some pork chops. I’m not usually a big pork chop fan (neither is my husband), but with these Sauté Express® Sauté Starters, I might become a fan pretty quickly! Want to try it for yourself? Grab a coupon!
Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Pork Fried Rice
1 to 1 ½ pounds of pork chops (cubed)
1 or 2 Land O’Lakes Sauté Express® Sauté Starter (Savory Butter & Olive Oil)
1 tbsp Hoison sauce
¼ cups soy sauce
3 cups broccoli florets
1 to 2 cups peas
½ cup shredded carrots
4 cups rice (cooked)
Over medium heat, place one Sauté Express® Sauté Starter cube into pan and allow to melt until bubbling. (Use two cubes for extra buttery flavor!)
Place pork chops, cut into cubes, into pan and cook thoroughly. While pork is sautéing, cook rice.
After pork is cooked, toss broccoli and peas into the pan and stir to combine. Add soy sauce and hoison sauce and continue cooking until vegetables are heated through. Lower heat to low-medium and add cooked rice. Stir to combine all ingredients. Continue cooking on low heat for five minutes.
Immediately before serving, stir in shredded carrots. Enjoy!!
