Those are pork chops. Really beautiful ones. In my ed letter last month, I wrote about the rise of whole-animal, craft butchers. In NYC alone, we're lucky enough to have joints like @fleishers
. What I love most about them, and their generation, is the pork they sell--rich, flavorful, slicked with fat and, yes, humanely raised. I got these rib chops yesterday from @8handsfarm
, seasoned them with salt and grilled them over a medium-hot fire till crispy and med/med-rare. I then sliced the chops and spooned over them a great-on-everything riff on nuoc cham (fish sauce, lime juice, bit of sugar, garlic, ginger and minced cilantro stems). So good.
