Tanni was the demonstrator in this week’s cooking club at Gilmore Park Church. She made a fabulous Swiss Pork Chop and 2 different types of pancakes.
Regretfully, I did not have my camera with me as Ben brought it to work today. I managed to borrow a point and shoot digital camera from a good friend of mine, Rachel for the cooking class. Unfortunately, being unfamiliar with the camera, most of the photos did not turn out ok. So, I’ll try my best to illustrate today’s recipes with the few photos that I had.
Ingredients for the Swiss Pork Chop
- Centre cut boneless pork chop, butterfly and pound thin with a tenderizer hammer
- Ham slices
- Cheese slices
Instructions for the Swiss Pork Chop
- Marinate the pork chop with salt and pepper for 30 minutes
- Place cheese and ham slice in between the pork
- Coat the pork chop with flour, dip in beaten eggs and coat with bread crumbs
- Deep fry the pork chop in shallow oil for 3 minutes on each side until cooked.
This is a great recipe that kids would love. The melted cheese oozes out from the pork chop and the pork chop tasted really good. We all love this dish.
Ingredients for the Savory Pancake with Ham
- Ham, cut into small pieces
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon sugar
To make the Savory Pancake with Ham, just mix all the ingredients together until you get a smooth batter. Drop by tablespoon into a frying pan with a little oil and fry on low until the bottom of the pancake is golden. Flip the pancake over to fry on the side.
You may substitute the ham with cooked shrimp, green onion, dried shrimp or any other cold cuts you have on hand. This pancake is quick to make and great for after school snacks.
Tanni also make a sweet pancake with oats. The Oats Pancake is great for breakfast.
Ingredients for Oats Pancake
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/4 cup instant oats
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon raisin, optional
Mix all the ingredients and drop by tablespoon into a frying pan with a little oil. Fry on low heat until the bottom of the pancake is golden and flip over to fry on the other side.
The batter of the Oats Pancake is much more thicker than the Savory Pancake with Ham. This is a very healthy pancake. Oat is a good source of fiber and can lower cholesterol.
Tanni, thank you for sharing such great recipes with us. We look forward for your next sharing again.
