You know how when you're in a new relationship, everything is so exciting? And you want to do everything with that new other person and you love finding new ways to incorporate them into your life.
I feel that way.
About Laughing Cow Cheese.
Ah yes. I am in a deeply involved relationship with these 1 point, 35 calorie wedges of creamy delicious cheese. I love it on crackers. I love it on celery. And I would love to involve it in a main dish. You know like how you may want to impress a new significant other with a fabulous dish? I want to impress myself with how awesome Laughing Cow can be in a main dish.
And so last week, after a little experimentation: Pork Roulades were born!
They are SO easy. SO delicious. And by my estimation only 4 points a serving.
Let's get started:
6 thin sliced pork chops, trimmed of fat
2 Laughing Cow cheese wedges
1 large bunch Swiss Chard (or whatever wiltable green you fancy)
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbso balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375
Heat oil in large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for 1-2 minutes/until fragrant.
Add the swish chard and cook for about 5-8 minutes until wilted. Just before it's done splash in 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar.
Set aside and take out your trimmed pork chops. Lay them in between sheets of wax paper and pound to 1/4 inch thickness. Salt and pepper and sprinkle with 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar.
When the chard is cool enough to handle, spread an equal amount of the Laughing Cow cheese on each chop
put an equal amount of the wilted chard on top,
and then roll up, securing with toothpicks.
Place the roll ups seam side down on a baking dish and cook for 10-15 minutes until done.
Remove the toothpicks and serve over rice. Serving size is two roll ups! It's SO TASTY and delicous. Swiss chard is tasty in and off itself as is the cheese and both make the pork so moist and flavorful. Delicious.
