Strawberry Buttercream Frosting, quick and easy recipe #ButterCream #Frosting #Strawberry

Strawberry Buttercream Frosting Recipe:
Summer is the time for strawberries. We like strawberries on everything, and that includes our cupcakes and honey biscuits. To be honest, I have even been known to mix a small dollop of this strawberry frosting into my vanilla bean ice cream. Gone are the days of using store bought strawberry icing. Once you taste this strawberry frosting recipe, you will be hooked!
Here’s what you need:
3 cups 10x powdered sugar
1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla
3-4 strawberries (use a food chopper or puree them)
1/8 teaspoon of salt

How you make it:
1. In a mixing bowl beat butter with a mixer until creamy.
2. Add vanilla to your creamed butter.
3. Slowly add powdered sugar and salt and mix until you have a nice fluffy frosting.
4. Add your chopped strawberries (or puree) and continue mixing until the entire mixture is a pretty light pink.

Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, brown the pork chops on  each side for about 1 minute.   TIP ~ I normally scrap off the onions while I brown the pork chops.. them add them back on top before I bake them in the oven.

Take off the stove top and finish cooking on the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Till pork is at least 145 degrees in the middle. I love my meat thermometer  for cooking pork, helps me know I cooked it enough before it get to over cooked and though.
