The Belgian Pork Chops

What UFO had learned from his fiance Micheline Kahan-Lide, and the often prepared for his friends, to everyone's great delight:

The Belgian Pork Chops

6 pork chops
6 cloves garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon savory
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon rosemary
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt

knead all by hand
coat pork chops (thinly)
heat the pan very high, olive oil
2 min on side, golden brown
                       drain off excess oil
reduce the heat, put in a cup of wine (preferably white)
cover, simmer for 5-10 minutes
                       take pork chops out, place on a hot plate, cover with foil
turn heat to maximum
                       constantly stirring, reduce until no fluid left
use these few tablespoons as the sauce

Belgian French Fries

(always a side to excellent steak, but the recipe requires litters of oil in a special pot, so I skip that)

UFO's Asparagus

canned asparagus
hot cayenne sauce
ground pepper
lots of olive oil
Mix, boil the liquid away (ca. 20 minutes), serve.
