Gail Hunter Pork Chops Recipe

It’s the time of year when we all start craving home-cooked comfort food, isn’t it? If you’re looking for an easy, SUPER-yummy, gluten-free, dairy-free winter recipe, this is it. Seriously. We asked Gail and Sterling Hunter if they’d be willing to share some of their tried-and-true Harvest Ministries recipes on the FAC blog, so here are a few to try. With minimal ingredients (and dishes!), you can easily be sitting down to mouth-watering, savoury pork chops and beautifully roasted winter veggies.
