BRINED PORK CHOPS WITH FENNEL by David Tanis
For me I think fennel is an under appreciated vegetable, it is delicious here with pork chops.
Enjoy! ~ Katie

Time: 30 minutes, plus brining
Yields: 2 to 3 servings

Ingredients:

For the Brine

  • 1/4 cup kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 black peppercorns – lightly crushed
  • 6 allspice berries – lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds – lightly crushed
  • 2 bone-in pork chops (about 12 ounces each)

For the Pork Chops

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion – sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • 3 or 4 trimmed fennel bulbs (about 1 pound) – sliced 1/4-inch thick
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves – minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds – crushed
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped parsley
  • A few tender green fennel fronds
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)

Preparation:

  1. Make the brine: Put salt, sugar, bay leaves, peppercorns, allspice and fennel seeds in a bowl. Whisk in 4 cups water to dissolve salt and sugar.
  2. Put pork chops in one layer in a glass or plastic container. Pour brine over to completely submerge chops. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably longer, up to overnight. Remove chops from brine and pat dry. Discard brine.
  3. Cook the chops: Heat oven to 400 degrees. Set a wide, heavy skillet over high heat and add olive oil. When oil is wavy, add chops in one layer and let brown for about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Remove chops from pan and set aside. Reduce heat to medium-high and add sliced onion and fennel, stirring to coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until beginning to color, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and crushed fennel seeds and turn off heat.
  5. Lay the chops on top of the onion-fennel mixture (alternatively, transfer all of it to a baking dish) and place pan, uncovered, in oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until the internal temperature of chops is 140 degrees.
  6. Remove chops and let rest for about 5 minutes. Transfer onion-fennel mixture to a platter and keep warm. Cut chops into 1/8-inch slices and add to platter. Sprinkle with parsley and garnish with fennel fronds. Serve with lemon wedges.

Third Quarter 2018 Executive Summary – Luxury Market Report (Excerpt)
by Anthony Cutugno (Senior Vice President/Director of Private Brokerage):

Luxury homes sales north of NYC through the third quarter showed mixed results. In Westchester, luxury sales (sales over $2M) were down slightly. Recent reports indicate the housing sales nationwide are slowing because wage growth is not keeping pace with the increase in real estate prices. Our luxury markets do indeed appear to be slowing down, but lack of wage growth is not a factor for luxury buyers. In fact, the ten-year bull market created $18 trillion in wealth since the Standard & Poor’s 500 bottomed on March 9, 2009. Despite these record-setting gains in the stock market and net worth, the luxury buyer north of NYC is defined by a cautious and restrained approach to real estate. They are reminded that real estate can decline in value, and the fear of overpaying is a primary concern. Luxury rentals have increased since last year and offer an easy wait-and-see solution. The pursuit of value drives the purchase decisions of today’s buyer. They want a fair price that can be justified by comparable sales, and confidence in the property’s marketability should the need to sell arise. A surplus of luxury inventory justifies their caution: At the close of the third quarter, there were 467 luxury homes ($2M and higher) for sale in Westchester County and 57 homes in contract. Motivated sellers are paying attention to the importance of pricing and its out sized ability to attract the attention of buyers with a value-driven offering. Sellers who priced their homes ambitiously are reducing or withdrawing them from the market.
