Dream Dinners: Pecan Crusted Chops with Oven Roasted Broccoli

As we get further in to May, I am getting closer to making my May meals and almost finished with the April meals.  I now have to take a few days to catch up on blogging about them.  Our next meal was the Pecan Crusted Chops with Oven Roasted Broccoli.  We’ve made the oven roasted broccoli on several occasions, so I knew that would turn out great.   I also decided to make some rice to add on the side and also because Lola likes to eat the leftover rice.  I preheated the oven while I got the water boiling for the rice.  I put the broccoli on a foil lined pan.   I mixed the pecans into the crumb mixture.  I coated the pork chops in the crumb mixture and placed them on a baking sheet.  I put the broccoli and pork chops in the oven for 20 minutes.  After 10 minutes, I removed the broccoli and mixed in the butter and seasoning.  Everything finished at about the same time.  The broccoli was great, as we’ve experienced in the past.  The pork chops were cooked to perfection, but I would have liked the crust to be a little crispier.  While I liked this meal, I enjoy the pork tenderloins a little bit more.  I think the crumb mixture on a pork tenderloin would have been really tasty and I will definitely include that when I rate my meals.
