Here's what you'll need:
- 4 - 1-inch thick pork chops
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 6 sprigs of fresh sage, chopped (about 4 T)
- 1 T extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 T butter
- 1/2 C dry white wine
Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Season chops with salt and pepper and rub them each with about 1 T of chopped sage, rubbing well into both sides of the chops. Add oil to the pan, melt butter into the oil and add chops to the pan. Cook 10-12 minutes each side, remove to warm platter, and let rest. Add wine to the pan and scrape up the drippings. Spoon over the chops and serve.
The pork chops were very flavorful and juicy. I think cooking them over high heat in butter and olive oil sealed in the flavors and was the key to this recipe. The pork chops go really well when served with rice. Again I'm all about easy and delicious and this recipe hits both requirements for me. Try it out and let me know what you think.
