Pork chop, onion and green beans over noodles

After cooking all weekend (and leaving me with a backlog of posts and pictures to share), I still feel the need to cook myself a quickly and easy dinner after work. I headed to Dominicks and was going to buy whatever meat was on sale and go from there. Today, pork chops won and I grabbed about a pound of green beans.

This recipe is really easy to make - about fifteen to twenty minutes start to finish. It does dirty two pots, a pan, a cutting board, and a George Foreman grill. It has a lot of "mean whiles..." so I'll separate them by pot.

Small pot - bring to boil. Rinse your green beans and chop off the ends. Add the green beans and cook until they reach your preferred tenderness. Drain. Set aside to place in your pan.

Larger pot - bring to boil with Kosher salt. Add noodles. Follow the directions, including rinsing gluten-free pasta. Drain. Set aside.

Larger pan - chop one medium sized onion and smash two cloves of garlic. Add olive oil to pan and then onion and garlic. Cook until tender. Remove the garlic. Add the cooked green beans and about one to two tablespoons of soy sauce. Cook for another two minutes on low.

George Foreman - lightly oil the warmed plates by wiping it with olive oil on a paper towel. Add pork chop(s). Cook for a few minutes. Remove from grill and cut into smaller pieces.

Bring all the ingredients together in a perfectly plated bowl! Enjoy! And don't forget to clean your George Foreman once you are done eating! The sooner you clean it, the happier you will be.

I used La Choy Soy Sauce (some people have a gluten reaction from it - I don't) and thin rice noodles from the Asian section of the grocery store.
