Sautéed Pork Chops with Lemon-Garlic Sauce
- (4) 1″ thick Pork Chops
- Black Pepper
- 2 teaspoon Olive Oil, divided
- 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
- 1/2 Cup White Wine
- 1/2 Cup Low-Sodium Chicken Broth
- Grated Lemon Zest and 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice from one lemon
- 1 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Parsley
- 1 Teaspoon Chopped Fresh Rosemary
Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook, turning once, until pork is browned and internal temperature reaches 145˚F, about 3-5 minutes on each side. Transfer pork to serving platter and cover to keep warm.Add remaining tsp of oil to skillet. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until garlic is fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add wine and broth. Increase heat to high and cook, stirring to scrape up browned bits from bottom of the skillet, until liquid is reduced by two thirds, about 5 minutes.
Remove skillet from heat and stir in a little salt and pepper, lemon zest and juice, and herbs. Serve pork chops drizzled with sauce.
I served these pork chops with a fresh salad (Click HERE for the recipe) and left over Chardonnay from the recipe. Very sexy!
