Egg Poachers Wanted!


Eggs are such an essential and perfect protein.  Poached is probably one of my favorite prepartions of the egg.  Once broken, it gives such a great “sauce” to whatever you are eating.

Egg Poachers Wanted!

Ingredients

  • 1 center cut boneless pork chop
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 egg

Directions

  1. For this dish, I grilled a center cut pork chop, simply seasoned with salt and pepper.
  2. The spinach is pan-wilted with a touch of bacon grease and minced garlic.
  3. To properly poach an egg, melt a teaspoon of ghee (or coconut oil) on low and then brush the bottom and halfway up the sides of the saucepan.  Fill halfway with water and bring to a boil.  Reduce to a simmer.
  4. Crack your egg in a small bowl or measuring cup.
  5. Slowly slide the egg into the water.  Cook for 4-6 minutes, depending on how done you prefer the yolk.  The egg in this picture was cooked for 5 minutes.
  6. Remove egg from water with a slotted spoon.  If you want the egg to have pretty edges, slide the egg on a plate. Either cut the rough edges off with a knife, or turn a glass upside down and make your circle (like a cookie cutter).
  7. Plate your food.
  8. Enjoy!

  3. Can you not just use vinegar in the water instead of prepping the pan with ghee?
