Breaded Pork Chops with Green Bean and Mushroom Quinoa

Pork Chops:

1 Pork Chop per serving
Salt & Pepper
garlic powder
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 egg
1 cup bread crumbs

Season chops with salt and pepper (both sides), in 3 plates arrange the flour with garlic powder, egg wash (1 egg mixed with a tb of water), and seasoned bread crumbs. Dip each pork chop in the flour, followed by the egg wash & finally into the breading. Once all chops are breaded, heat up (medium high) a large skillet with olive oil & 1 tb of butter. Sear each chop about 8-10 per side, depending on the thickness. Drain on paper towels before serving.

a side of Quinoa:

1 cup cooked quinoa
1 cup halved green beans
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 clove minced garlic

I love to flavor my quinoa by sauteing a minced garlic in a it of olive olive, I then add 2 cups of water, 1 tsp of salt & bring to a boil, add your washed quinoa and cook for 25 mins. Uncover cooked quinoa. Wash and slice your mushrooms, cup green beans in half & mince a clove of garlic. Heat up a large saute pan, add 2 Tb of olive oil, saute garlic for 20 secs. Next add mushrooms, mix a bit and leave them alone, resist the temptations to stir  or they will release all their yummy juices and won't brown. After about 3 mins, stir and cook another 2 mins, take them out on a bowl. Add your green beans and saute for 5 mins, I like my greens beans to maintain their crispiness. Incorporate mushrooms once again & mix in the quinoa. Turn heat off!

How pretty is this dish??????
