Pork Loin Chop Recipe Ingredients:
PORK LOIN CHOP
2 Tbsp OLIVE OIL
1 lg ONION (sliced)
6-8 cloves GARLIC (rough chopped)
SALT and PEPPER, to taste
Season both sides of chop before cooking--and don't be timid with the seasoning--it'll make all the difference! I often use just salt and pepper (black pepper AND cayenne), but experiment with your favorite seasonings, too--every now and then I'll season up chops with ground ginger and saute them with onion and sliced, fresh ginger--it's pretty damn good.
Heat olive oil in a skillet (skillet should be suitable for stovetop and oven)--not smoking hot, but pretty damn hot--we want to sear the pork and seal in the flavor.
Place chops in the skillet; they should sizzle when they hit the pan. Add fresh rosemary sprigs. Cook chops 3-4 minutes on one side and then turn. This is for chops approx. 1" thick--adjust cooking times according to the size of the chop you use. Move chops in pan to mix with oil and rosemary. Add sliced onion and garlic. Cook chop 3-4 minutes on second side, then remove skillet from stovetop and slide skillet into oven preheated to 350 degrees F. Cook another 4-5 minutes and return to stovetop. Remove chops from skillet and set aside to rest.
Continue cooking onion and garlic with rosemary on medium/low heat to desired doneness.
Top chops with onion and garlic and serve.
That's it...super easy and super flavorful--it's a great way to cook up a juicy chop without drying it out, so give this recipe a go and let me know what you think, and bob appetit!
