Their Roasted Garlic

When the folks over at Whisk contacted me about trying their products I immediately said yes because, unbeknownst to them, I already like their products! I hadn’t tried their whole line though, just their salad dressings and some of their salts. I was immediately drawn to and Rosemary Jam because, well, I love roasted garlic, and I love sweet in my savories. After my first taste I immediately knew I wanted to cook with it…something pork, or chicken, and something roasted. I had a big pork cutlet in the freezer and this dish was born.

I originally made this with only one pork cutlet, for my children on an evening when C and I had dinner plans outside. I took a bite before heading out and knew I was going to cook it again for the whole family…and I knew I had to share it with you.

This is such an easy dish to make…criminally easy, hardly any effort at all. Rub, sear, and then finish off the cooking in the oven, and you have a delicious dinner on your table. All thanks to some flavor-packed, shortcut ingredients. Their jam tastes of some wonderful garlic and herb infused sweet/sour/savory sauce. I can imagine using the same treatment as with these chops on, say, chicken thighs baked in the oven.

You can make this with regular pork chops and if you do you won’t need to cook them in the oven. If using regular chops I would sear them for 30 seconds per side, then sear the fat, then smear them all over with the roasted garlic jam and return to the pan just to finish cooking. It’ll be much quicker!

Although a I’ve taken a shortcut here, Whisk’s products are home made themselves, without any chemical preservatives or artificial ingredients, so I consider them just a step away from making it myself! It is certainly a relief to us weary souls just happy to have some help in the kitchen, to have the bonus of this help being all-natural. Whisk actually started with exactly that in mind…to provide better alternatives to commercial products that they could serve to their families. And now we can all benefit from their conscientiousness!

We do the best with what we have. And at the end of the day, if I know I have patched together the best for my family using whatever I have been dealt, whilst maintaining my sanity, and am still able to hug my loved ones and laugh at life’s little curveballs, then I think, in the grand scheme of things, I am doing fine (and you are too!).
