Shop for This Week's Dinner in Minutes
When you're in the market for plums -- one of the main components of tomorrow's recipe -- cookbook author Aliza Green advises buying fruit that is neither too soft nor too hard. Ripen it at room temperature till the skin loses its shine. Ripened plums can be refrigerated for up to 5 days.
Pork and Plums
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 or 4 (1 1/2 pounds) boneless center-cut pork chops, trimmed of excess fat, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inches thick
Freshly ground black pepper
4 medium shallots
6 firm black plums (about 1 3/4 pounds)
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar or sauvignon blanc vinegar
1 or 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar (may substitute raw sugar or 1 tablespoon light brown sugar)
Leaves from 2 sprigs thyme
Leaves from 2 stems flat-leaf parsley, for garnish (optional)
Questions? Bring 'em on.
