Savory Butter and Olive Oil Pork Chops #SautéExpress #SundaySupper



How many of you need more ideas for fast, tasty weeknight meals? I know we do. With a part-time working mom, more than full-time working dad, and two young girls with a lot of activities we are a family on the go. That means dinners are either drive through or quick prep. I vote for the second. But our family is tired of the same bland meals each week. That is why I am happy to share that Land O Lakes® has created a simple and tasty product to help.

The product is called Sauté Express® Sauté Starter and it takes the work out of the main dish. We used Savory Butter and Olive Oil to make a tasty pork chop meal and had it on the table in 15 minutes.

Sauté Express® Savory Butter and Olive Oil Pork Chops
  • 4 thin cut boneless pork chops
  • 2 cubes Land O Lakes® Savory Butter and Olive Oil
  • 1 cup dry egg noodles
  • 1 cup frozen peas

Heat water for egg noodles on the stove. Place Savory Butter and Olive Oil cubes in a medium skillet to melt. Once melted add pork chops. Cook pork chops 4-6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink in the middle. Once water is boiling add egg noodles and cook for 8-10 minutes until done to your liking. Heat the peas on the stove or in the microwave. Remove pork chop from the skillet and place on a plate to serve. Drain noodles once cooked and then toss in the remaining sauce in the skillet. Serve pork chop whole or cut up for the younger set. Peas can be tossed in or on the side.

Add cubes.

Melt. Add meat.

Pour noodles in boiling water, stir.

Heat peas in microwave.

Yummy, home-cooked meal on the table in minutes.

Mom, I can't get the noodles on my fork. I'll eat pork instead.


This was such a simple meal that Audrey was able to perform most tasks involved. Ballerina outfit not required.

Audrey’s Tasks:
  1. Place cubes in skillet and melt
  2. Place pork in skillet
  3. Add noodles and stir
  4. Toss noodles in sauce
  5. Cook peas

Mom’s Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Turn on the stove
  3. Assist Audrey
  4. Turn pork chops
  5. Drain noodles

This simple product tasks all of the guess work out of what to make for dinner. There are four delicious flavors: Garlic & Herb, Italian Herb, Savory Butter & Olive Oil and Lemon Pepper so there is one that is perfect for your family. Simply melt the cube and add fresh chicken, fish, pork, or shrimp for a fast tasty meal.

We came home from Audrey’s ballet class at 6:30 PM and had to get dinner cooked and the girls in bed by 7:30 PM. The only way we were able to pull that off and still feed the family a health meal was with the Sauté Express® Sauté Starter. Give it a try yourself and see what I am raving about.

Land O Lakes® is giving away coupons for free product so you can try and be as amazed as we are at how simple a tasty meal can be.

  1. What a great easy dinner! Who needs to go through the drive-through... love this recipe but I'm not sure that it would be as tasty without the ballerina cooking it for me!

    1. I have to admit I am getting used to her help. What will happen during the teenage years when she is too busy to cook with me?

  2. Your sous chef is quickly taking over the kitchen! I love it!

    By the way, I always cook in my ballerina outfit! ;-)

    1. It is getting to the point where she can almost do it alone. She does make breakfast by herself when I go out for a race so dad can sleep.

  17. The biggest challenge is to arrange our schedules so that we can actually all sit down together. Whether it is working late, a sports event, or after school activity, sometimes we have to actually schedule our dinners together. carolyemola@hotmail.com
