Sexy Pork Chops are smothered in a wonderful zesty sauce made of white wine, chicken broth, and garlic then finished off with lemon and fresh herbs. They’re perfect for a quick easy meal that will impress just about anyone. Here’s how I made them:
4 1-inch thick pork chops
Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil divided
2 cloves garlic minced
⅓ cup white wine
½ cup chicken broth
zest + 1 tablespoon lemon juice of one lemon
1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, turning once, until pork is browned and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes on each side. Transfer pork to serving platter and cover to keep warm.
Add remaining tablespoon of oil to skillet and heat. Add garlic to the oil. Cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds (do not burn). Add wine and broth. Increase heat to high. Cook, stirring to scrape up browned bits from bottom of the pan, until liquid is reduced by two-thirds, about 5 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in a little more salt and pepper, lemon zest and juice, and herbs.
Serve pork chops drizzled with sauce.
