GREEK-STYLE PORK CHOPS

Now I know a lot of people like to go the super easy route and buy quick fry boneless pork chops at the supermarket. That's all fine but I tend to find that the pork chops, no matter how it's cooked, it turns out to taste like rubber (in some form). The hubby and I decided that enough was enough, and we decided the bone-in option was the way to go! I marinaded these chops in a simple Greek-style marinade with oregano, lemon zest and juice, garlic etc. These turned out to be one of the juiciest and most flavourful chops I had in a longgg time. If you're looking for an easy but tasty pork chop recipe for your family or yourself, here is a recipe that is sure to please!

Ingredients:
  • 2 one-inch thick pork chops, bone-in French cut
  • coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tsp mixed steak seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • zest and juice of one lemon
  • 4 garlic cloves, grated fine
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of low-sodium chicken stock

1. Take the two pork chops and trim some of the fat around the meat. Get a small bowl, and add in the a pinch of coarse salt, freshly cracked black pepper. steak seasoning, dried oregano, zest and juice of a lemon, grated garlic and olive oil. Stir to combine the ingredients.

2. Take the pork chop marinade and really rub it into the meat, on all sides. Place the chops onto a plate and let it marinade, covered, for a good 20-30 minutes. Make sure to take the meat out about 10 minutes before cooking to help relax the meat, so it's not so cold.

3. Preheat a medium sized heavy bottom skillet, on medium high heat. Sear the meat for a good 4-5 minutes per side to crisp the outside, then pour in the chicken stock. Turn the heat down to medium. Cook with lid on for about 18-20 minutes, so the chops can be juicy and tender. Serve immediately along side salad or penne pasta in tomato sauce. Enjoy!
