Portobello Pork Chops


Mark and I went to Hawaii in 2009 for his brother’s wedding.  Mark ordered this meal, can’t remember what restaurant, but he loved it. He has searched ever since for the recipe and finally succeeded in finding it. It was pretty darn good and it was inexpensive and easy.

4 bone-in pork rib or loin chops, 3/4-inch thick
1 1/2 cups mild chunky salsa
1 cup Portobello mushrooms, chopped (I used 1 and 1/2)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup fresh parsley, snipped

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Trim fat from chops.

Spoon salsa into a 3-quart rectangular baking dish. Arrange chops on top of salsa. Combine Portobello mushrooms, cheddar cheese and maple syrup in a medium bowl. Spoon over chops. Bake, uncovered, for 20 to 30 minutes until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees F followed by a 3 minute rest time. Sprinkle with parsley. Serve chops with salsa mixture.

Substitutions: Diced green onions instead of parsley

    The name of the restaurant was Bibas, located on the first floor of the Hale Koa. This recipe is very damned close to what I ordered there.

    you could probably use some cilantro in exchange for the parsley also.
