Pan-Seared Pork Chops with Thyme

IMG_8095

This was a tasty, lean, and quick main dish that I served with Asparagus Mimosa and roasted gold potatoes on the side. This recipe was adapted from Martha Stewart Living. I modified the proportions in the sauce and used red wine instead or Marsala wine.

Yield: 6 servings

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 6 boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 /2 cup Chicken Stock
  • 1/2 cup red or Marsala wine
  1. Combine the salt and pepper and dried thyme and rub on the pork chops. Press a sprig of thyme into each chop.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and add the pork chops, thyme-side down. Sear 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until just browned and the interior is no longer bright pink. Transfer to a warm plate.
  3. Pour off the fat from the skillet, return to the heat, add the stock and wine, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops and serve.
