Ingredients

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

SOUTHERN COOKED GREENS

HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

Directions

  1. Prepare the smoker. Season the oysters with Essence. Cold smoke the oysters for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the edges start to curl. (Cold smoke means that the temperature for the smoker stays between 80 degrees F to 85 degrees F. The oysters are not cooked, just flavored.)
  2. Remove from the smoker and roughly chop. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions, bell peppers, and celery. Saute for about 5 minutes or until the vegetables are wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the garlic. Add the cornbread, stock and reserved oyster liquid and mix well. Season with salt and cayenne. Cook, stirring, for about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the oysters and parsley. Cool the dressing. Make a 1 1/2 to 2-inch slit on the side of the pork chop. Season the entire chop with Essence. Stuff each pork chop with a good amount of the stuffing, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup. The chop will be very full.
  3. In a large saute pan, heat the remaining oil. When the oil is hot, carefully lay the chops in the pan. Sear the chops for about 3 minutes on one side. Flip the chops over and continue to sear for 4 minutes. Remove the chops from the heat and place in the oven. Roast the chops for about 6 to 8 minutes for medium. In a small saute pan, over medium heat, brown the sausage. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside. Remove the chops from pan and allow to rest for a couple of minutes before serving. To serve, spoon the greens in the center of each plate. Place the chops on top of the greens. Fold the sausage into the Hollandaise Sauce. Spoon the sauce over each chop. Garnish with green onions.

SOUTHERN COOKED GREENS

Yield: 8 servings
  1. In a large pot, have the bacon rendered crispy, about 5 minutes. Add the onions and cook for about 6 to 7 minutes or until the onions are wilted. Season the mixture with salt, pepper and pinch of cayenne. Add the shallots and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the beer, vinegar, and molasses. Stir in the greens, a third at a time, pressing the greens down as they start to wilt. Cook the greens, uncovered for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Mound the greens in the center of the platter. Arrange the chops around the greens. Spoon the sauce over the top.

HOLLANDAISE SAUCE

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups
  1. In a stainless steel bowl set over a pot of simmering water over medium heat, whisk the egg yolks with the lemon juice, water, mustard, and parsley, together. Season with salt and cayenne. Whisk the mixture until pale yellow and slightly thick. Be careful not to let the bowl tough the water. Remove the bowl from the pot and whisking vigorously, add the butter, 1 teaspoon at a time, until all is incorporated. Serve warm.
