$5.00 dinners-Pork Chops, Broccoli Stirfry, And Spicy Home Fries

$5.00 dinners! Wow do you think you could make a meal for your whole family for so cheap? Well guess what, I did! and I got this neat-o idea to post my dinner from $5.00 dinners to show you a great meal that you can make for $5.00 too! So here is my weeks dinner recipe:

$2.00 pork chops - 4 chops about 1.5 to 2 pounds
$2.20 stir fry broccoli - 1lb frozen florets
.44 spy home fries - 2lbs russets small square dice

Total: $4.64 + spices and oil probably comes to $5.00

With the pork chops pat dry and rub with a little sugar (I used Xylitol) sea salt and cracked pepper. Fry in a hot pan (about medium) of oil (about a tablespoon) until golden brown, do the same to the other side and then place on a plate and foil to bring up to temp. to finish cooking , the chops should be taken off a little before done and will finish under the foil-check the temp for doneness!

Chop the potatoes into a small dice and fry in a skillet on medium heat (using bacon drippings) with lid on until soft. Add salt and pepper to taste (but pepper is a must) and then add cayenne to taste.

For the stir fry steam the broccoli for a few minutes in a steamer. Then toss with one T of oil, salt, and pepper and cook in frying pan for a few minutes until bright green and tender but not too tender. Add one clove of garlic minced and stir a bit longer then serve.-If you like your garlic a bit more tender ad it to the pan about 15-30 seconds before you ad the broccoli. Just don't let it brown.

And there you have it, a yummy $5.00 dinner!
