Bobby Flay's Go-To Summer Dinner For Simple, Fresh Flavors
Celebrity chef Bobby Flay can make any complicated dish he wants to, but he has a go-to dinner for the summer months that is easy to make without sacrificing flavor.
Flay cooks up some smoky spice-rubbed pork chops with a green chile relish, which also features avocados, cilantro, and lime juice, that's piled high on top of the cooked cutlets.
Flay starts the dish by drizzling avocado oil and sprinkling salt on poblano peppers before he pops them into the oven to roast until the skins become charred and blistered.
Once the peppers have blackened, Flay puts them in a bowl covered with plastic wrap so they can steam. This helps loosen the skin so you can easily remove it.
The peppers are then chopped up and used as the base of the relish. Avocados and shallots are added for bursts of taste and texture, along with cilantro, lime, salt, and pepper.
Flay seasons the pork chops with a seven-spice rub and fries them in a cast-iron skillet. He then moves the pork chops to a baking sheet and finishes cooking them in the oven.
When Flay serves the cooked pork chops, he spoons the relish over them and garnishes with more avocado oil and lime juice. He also recommends pairing the dish with a margarita.
