Yep. Pork chop for breakfast! Except it will only take you 10 minutes to make because the point of this post is to share what I always do with any great meat left over from the previous nights' dining experience. It's especially great with pork chop or steak, but I'm sure you could do the same with any other grilled meat. You know when you go out to eat and have too few leftovers for a full meal but enough that you're tempted to bring it with you? Well, if you enjoyed the meat, then bring it home and use it for breakfast! This pork chop is from Flora Farm (you must read the post!), but the situation wasn't exactly the same because their pork chops are the size of their plates! But it worked out nicely that way because we all would have fought over who got to eat it for breakfast if there hadn't been so much leftover!

pork chop for breakfast

leftover pork chop from last night's dinner (or any grilled meat!), sliced into thin strips
one tablespoon butter (you could use olive oil instead, but butter makes it sooooo good!)
optional: freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, feta cheese to sprinkle, avocado, red pepper flakes, cilantro leaves, basically whatever else sounds good for a garnish!

This is more like guidelines rather than a recipe, so adapt as you wish! But here's what I did: I melted one tablespoon of butter in a small pan over medium-high heat, added the limes, let them sizzle a bit and release some of their juices, then added the strips of meat. I seared the meat on one side for about 30 seconds, then the other for another 30 seconds. The key here, since you're using leftover meat, is to heat it up and add a bit of color to it, but to avoid cooking it for too long so that it remains tender and doesn't become too dry. Meanwhile, I toasted some bread, made a sunny side up egg, cut up an avocado, and put it all together on a plate! You don't even have to use limes or have the toast & egg- I've made hashbrowns before and eaten it with the seared meat, I think I've even eaten leftover steak on it's own! Whatever works for you! But it's easy and delicious!
