It feels good to be back after February break and be writing a blog post! It’s even better that I am continuing on my ed. tech. journey while enhancing my cooking skills. You may be wondering why my title is so random- well I will be telling you about cooking pork-chops and showing videos so there you have it! Feel free to give me feedback on anything!
Watch below for an introduction to what I prepared in the kitchen today. I am trying to incorporate more videos into my posts sharing things with you!
Today was definitely my biggest challenge in the kitchen so far. I chose to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and prepare something that was a little more challenging to get right. Today’s task was to prepare pork-chops and scalloped potatoes! To view the recipe click here. I retrieved this recipe from The Midnight Baker. I encourage you to check out their site! This recipe drew my attention because you could put everything together in one pan to bake- again less dishes!
Now I am going to take you through what I did to prepare and cook the pork-chops and scalloped potatoes because at times it may have been a little bit different than what the recipe asked.
Step 1: Cut up vegetables. I chopped the potatoes and onions into thin slices to go on the bottom of the pans, underneath the pork-chops.
Step 2: Watch the video below to see what I did next after cutting up the vegetables. The one thing I forgot to mention in the video is to cook the dish for 1 hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
What is said in the video:
- Season potatoes and onions with salt, pepper, seasoning salt, garlic salt, paprika, and chili powder. Then mix together.
- Add potato mixture to pans.
- Brown pork-chops separately in frying pan on stove.
- When pork-chops are done browning put them on top of potatoes in pan.
- Pour sauce (mushroom soup and milk) over pork-chops and potatoes and then bake in oven.
I hope the video above helped in understanding what I did! I want to provide more “how to” videos seeing as some prefer that over just text and pictures.
Below is the finished product and us “digging in” to our meals.
Stay tuned this week to see some reviews on the tech. tools and resources I have been using so far for my learning project!
I want to end off with 2 questions for you for now:
What video editing tools do you use?
What strategies do you use to choose blog post titles? (I think my titles could use some help)
