A note about serious food allergies

“Grits are grits, and cauliflower is cauliflower,” you say to yourself, looking at the title of this meal. “Calling grits cauliflower is like calling up down, the sun blue, and the sky yellow.” We're not saying your reality is bogus… but we totally are. Cauliflower grits are real, and delicious in this meal, combined with cheese and butter for decadence and delight. The grits stand out, but they are not alone; succulent pork and garlic-y spicy tomatoes round out this reality-bending dish. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using NY strip steak, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 9-11 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve.

  • If using chicken breasts, follow same instructions as pork chops in Steps 1 and 3, cooking until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes per side.

  • If using salmon fillets, pat dry and season flesh side with a pinch of salt and pepper. Follow same instructions as pork chops in Step 3, cooking, skin side up first, until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut cauliflower into bite-size pieces. Quarter tomatoes. Mince garlic. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Make the Cauliflower Grits

    Bring a medium pot with cauliflower, 1½ cups water, and seasoning blend to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Stir occasionally until water evaporates completely, 14-16 minutes. Make sure no water is left in the pot; remaining water will make grits runny. Remove from burner and add sour cream, cheese, and butter. Mash until mostly smooth, close to the consistency of grits. Cover and set aside. While cauliflower cooks, cook pork chops.

  3. 3

    Cook the Pork Chops

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pork chops to hot pan. Cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate. Rest, 3 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Cook the Tomatoes

    Return pan used to cook pork chops to medium-high heat. Add garlic to hot pan and stir constantly until aromatic, 30-60 seconds. Add tomatoes and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Stir in red pepper flakes (to taste). Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish
