NorthStar Cafe, with three locations, is a favorite Columbus spot. At breakfast, their ham and cheese scone is amazing, as are their sweet potato hash, and their prosciutto and poached eggs on rosemary focaccia. Later in the day, their great salads, peanut slaw or Sweet Basil Burrito might call to me. Customers flock there every Earth Day, when they offer their excellent veggie burger for free.
This is the chop recipe I turn to when I’ve thawed or just bought chops and haven’t given any thought to how I want to cook them till I am in the kitchen saying, “Huh. Time to get cooking.” They’re easy and I always have the ingredients (or close enough). And the pan juices are good enough to spoon up (This is why some of you should be brave and let your foods touch on the plate. . . that’s how I discovered the juices are quite tasty on mashed cauliflower. That recipes follows).
