One of my favorite easy dinners that the whole family likes are pork chops. I like to buy the thin pork chops so they cook fast and stay moist with a yummy crust on the outside. I grew up with two kinds of pork chops, shake and bake and smothered in cream of mushroom soup. We used to eat that so often that I can't even think of eating it that way now. My husband likes food simple and tangy so this is a dish he asks me to make often.
5 thin pork chops
2 tbs fresh cilantro or basil chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
juice of a lemon
salt and pepper
Salt and pepper each side of the pork chop. Add olive oil to large piping hot saute pan. Once it is very hot add the chops. Don't touch them and cook for about 2 minutes. The best part is the crust so it is very necessary to get it very hot and not move the pork. Flip the each chop and add lemon juice, garlic, and herbs. Cook for another 2 minutes and then done. I usually serve with rice and salad. This is a meal that is cheap easy, takes very little prep time and always devoured each time I make it. Try it and let me know what you think.
