Anyone out there in this big, old world want to try a DELICIOUS, QUICK, and EASY recipe for Seared Pork Chops in a Lemon, Wine & Herb Sauce? If you’re interested, then have I got a recipe for YOU! These pork chops are a perfect choice when you don’t have a long time to fix dinner, but want something really tasty, and packed with flavor!
I found the recipe on Pinterest, and made it for my husband and myself a couple of nights ago…Wow! Both of us LOVED it, and it was so incredibly simple to make! We even loved the leftovers the following night (score one for me for not having to cook again! Yippee!)
Seriously – these pork chops are so good, and the sauce is what sends them over the top! How can you go wrong with lemon, white wine, garlic, rosemary, etc in the sauce? YUM.
How To Make These Pan Seared Pork Chops
Season each of the boneless pork chops lightly with salt and pepper.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high until very hot. Add the pork chops, seasoning side down, to the hot skillet. Let them cook (without disturbing) for 4-5 minutes (pork will be browned).
After 4-5 minutes, when bottom of chop has a good brown “sear” on it, carefully flip the pork chops over and continue cooking 4-5 minutes, until second side is cooked.
Remove Pork Chops And Keep Warm
The pan seared pork chops should be cooked through. Remove the pork chops from the skillet onto a large plate.
Cover and keep the pork chops warm. I covered them with foil, and placed the plate in a 200 degree oven to keep warm, while I finished the sauce.
Make The Lemon, Wine & Herb Sauce In Same Skillet
Do not wipe or clean out the skillet. Add additional olive oil, and heat it until very hot (but not smoking) on medium heat. Now add the minced garlic to the hot oil and cook for 30 seconds, stirring constantly to prevent burning.
Add white wine and chicken broth to the skillet. Turn the heat up to high, and cook, making sure you get all the brown bits stuck onto the skillet bottom scraped up. There’s a lot of flavor in them.
Continue cooking the sauce until the liquid has reduced in volume by about 50 percent (this will take 5-6 minutes).
Once liquid has been reduced, remove the pan from the heat and stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, additional salt and pepper, and the fresh chopped rosemary and parsley. Stir to combine.
Time To Serve The Seared Pork Chops!
Once the sauce is finished cooking, it is time to serve these delicious seared pork chops! Place the chops onto a serving platter, and spoon all of the skillet sauce over the top. Serve immediately.
I served our seared pork chops with a side of rice and some green beans from our garden. Absolutely delicious!
Hope you enjoy these delicious seared pork chops in a lemon, wine and herb sauce! I know WE SURE DID! Have a great day.
