Meijer Bargain recipe of the week- Savory Pork Chops!

Bargain Meal of the Week

This week Pork Loin is on sale at Meijers. I like to take mine to the in-store butcher and have them cut half of it into pork chops. The other half I use as a roast. This way I get two meals with one meat purchase! Happy Eating Y'all!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand.
