Quick and Easy: Lemon Pepper Pork with Scallions and Peas

This is my current favorite recipe.  What my favorites always seem to have in common is that they are cheap, easy, and don't require hours of prep.

  • pork (I like the boneless country-style ribs because they're both affordable and tasty.)
  • lemon pepper (Find a brand without MSG.)
  • scallions
  • frozen peas
  • light olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Place pork, lightly coated in olive oil, in a baking dish.  Cover the top of the pork with lemon pepper.  Bake for 20 minutes per pound.  While the pork is baking, let the frozen peas thaw in a bowl of cold water.  With about 10 minutes cook time left for the pork, cut up the scallions and fry them in a generous amount of olive oil.  Strain the peas and add them to the cooked onions and oil; salt to taste.

Not bad for budget food.  The scallions drown the peas in mild oniony goodness to help endear them to those who might not be huge fans.  Also gluten-free and dairy-free.
