PREPARATION: Makes 4 to 6 Servings

EQUIPMENT: 1-quart Ultra-Tech II Saucepan, Large Skillet


  • 10-ounce package of Frozen Corn
  • 1.5 pounds of boneless pork chops
  • 1 large onion chopped.
  • 1 tablespoon dried roasted garlic grated.
  • ¼ cup chicken stock or broth
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • Tater Tots or French Fries baked


FROZEN CORN: To cook frozen vegetables using the Ultra-Tech II saucepan, follow these simple steps: Place the corn in the 1-quart saucepan, cover open the vent, and place over medium heat at 275F. When steam escapes and the whistle sounds, adjust the heat to low at 175F. It's important to note that frozen vegetables can cook completely in the Ultra-Tech II saucepan without water, ensuring the retention of minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and flavor.

PORK CHOPS: For perfectly seared pork chops, follow these simple steps: allow the pork chops to come to room temperature before cooking. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat 275ᵒF for 3 to 4 minutes. Test the heat by sprinkling a few drops of water in the pan - if the water droplets dance across the surface, the skillet is hot enough. Place the pork chops in the pan cover and open the vent; they may stick initially but will loosen after about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the pork chops, cover open the vent, and sear the other side for an additional 3 to 4 minutes. Once done, remove from the pan and set aside and keep warm.

ONIONS: To achieve that perfect golden-brown hue and rich flavor, start by placing the onions in a hot skillet and stirring them into the pan juices. Add the grated roasted garlic, stir, cover the skillet, open the vent, and cook over medium heat at 275ᵒF for about 5 minutes until the onions are beautifully caramelized.

Deglaze the skillet by removing the lid and adding chicken stock. Cover the skillet again, open the vent, and let the onions cook until soft, which should take around 5 minutes. This technique will add depth and sweetness to your gravy, making it even more delicious.

GRAVY: To prepare the gravy, start by adding butter to a skillet and stirring until it melts completely. Next, reduce the heat slightly to 225ᵒF and add the flour. Keep whisking until the flour is cooked and starts to emit a cookie-like aroma, forming a paste which should take around 3 to 4 minutes. Gradually add the milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, while continuously whisking to ensure all ingredients are well combined. Keep cooking and whisking until the gravy reaches your desired thickness. This step-by-step process will result in a delicious and perfectly textured gravy to accompany your meal.

To reheat the pork chops properly, it is essential to add them back to the gravy in the skillet. Once added, cover the skillet with an open vent and allow the pork chops to cook for approximately 5 minutes. This method ensures that the pork chops are heated evenly and retain their delicious flavor.

TO SERVE: Simply place the cooked pork chops on a serving plate and generously top them with the flavorful gravy. Pair this dish with corn cooked the waterless way for a healthier twist and bake crispy tater tots to complete the meal.
