Pork Chops Simmered in Sauce Served with Beets with Feta
Well anyway my son made this dish (which shocked me, I did not think he would even eat a beet). It was so delicious that I took everything back up when I visited so he would make them again!! The sweetness of the roasted beets with the salty Feta cheese, oh my. This is tasty! Here is how he made them.
3-4 fresh beets peeled, trimmed, and diced into 1/2" chunks
1-2 T. olive oil
1 t. salt
3-4 sliced green onions
3-4 T. crumbled Feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Toss the beets and olive oil together and season with salt and pepper.
Spread evenly across a baking sheet and roast until tender, 30-35 minutes. Check and stir once half way through the roasting time. Transfer into a bowl and toss with green onion and lemon juice. Top with Feta and serve. This is a departure from anything I had ever eaten and I really thought it delicious.
