GFCF Pork Chops with Maple Syrup Gravy and GFCF Creamy Mashed Potatoes

GFCF Maple Syrup Pork Chops with Casein Free Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Pork Chops
Season with salt and pepper cook in pan on medium heat with a little oil. Cook 3-4 minutes per side depending on thickness.  Remove from pan.

Maple Syrup Gravy
1T Gluten Free Flour
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 cup water
1 T Worcestershire
1 T Apple Cider Vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Add Gluten Free flour to the pan the pork chops were cooked in, add remaining ingredients. Let simmer for  a few minutes , mixing frequently.

Mashed Potatoes
3 Lbs Yukon Gold Potatoes
1/2 cup Vegan Sour Cream
1/2 cup Vegan Cream Cheese
1 stick Soy or Vegan Butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel and boil potatoes in salted water. Do not over cook potatoes as it could make the texture a little gritty. Poke with a knife if the potato falls off they are done or if you see a foam starting in the water they are probably done. Sorry I never time my potatoes! 

Heat all ingredients and add to hot potatoes, my mom told me never to add cold ingredients...seems to work. Combine all, add salt and pepper. Whip until smooth. 

Plate the potatoes, pork chops and let the Maple Syrup Gravy flow!  My boys love this...Got Wes who is not Casein Free to love mashed potatoes with these potatoes. He didn't like the dairy full version.  Enjoy!
