Have you ever read ‘Kitchen confidential’ by Anthony Bourdain? If not, you should, its a good read!
On Netflix, you can now watch his TV shows. ‘A cooks tour’ is great and i have been watching ‘The Layover’ over the past few weeks.
When he was in Chicago, one thing jumped out at me. Either before or after you watch a baseball game you go and get a pork chop sandwich. I compare it to a pie when watching Bath play rugby.
I have made similar things at home with pork steaks. It can be a bit chewy but ultimately a great comfort food. This takes it a whole step further because the bone is left in. I had to make it, so i did!
You will need
A pork chop
I wouldn’t call this a recipe. I roasted my pork chop and served it in some focaccia and some caper mayonnaise, but you can do whatever you like best. A good brioche roll and some mustard would be most traditional to the Chicago original!
