I had pork chops defrosted that I had planned to cook yesterday and didn’t so today, I had to cook those. I’m not a huge fan of pork chops but Vince bought these when United had a buy one/get one on pork chops before the meat supply went crazy so . . I was looking for an interesting recipe and came across one that, of course, I changed up a bit.
They were delicious! We had okra and Fogo copycat rolls with the pork chops.
Easy Pork Chops
These pork chops are easy and delicious. Add any seasonings you like. I used cajun seasoning (Cajun Redhead).
- 4 Pork Chops with or without bones
- 10 cloves garlic
- 3 T. rosemary, fresh, chopped Remove stems!
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 2 – 3 T olive oil
- cajun seasoning, salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400°.
Season pork chops.
Heat olive oil in skillet. Add pork chops and brown. Remove from pan, leaving pan juices.
Add whole garlic cloves and saute til tender. Remove to a cutting board. Mash with a fork. Add chopped rosemary and softened butter. Stir to make a paste.
Return pork chops to the skillet. Top with the garlic paste. Drizzle lemon juice over the pork chops.
Bake at 400° til done. We like ours at about 145 to 150°.
Remove from oven, let them rest for about 10 minutes before serving.
