Herbed Pork Chops with Garlic Butter


We are looking for very simple dishes as we head back to school in two weeks. I love summer vacation so I am sad to see the days getting shorter but happy that my son will soon have a regular schedule. Though we try to keep one over the summer it is not quite as regimented as he needs. So, a few more weeks and dinners will have to be before 10 pm and bed time before 1 am. Lazy days sleeping in and enjoying the sun are about to end.

This dish is so simple that dinner was on the table in about 25 minutes. I am keeping this in my back pocket for some of those nights that we need a quick dinner because of school meetings, dance or Latin classes, or even the nights I don’t want to cook.

Verdict:

My kids really liked this dish. It was very simple. I made extra of the garlic butter to put over the egg noodles that we had with this dish. They were so good.

Ingredients:

  • 4 – 6 pork chops, bone in, about 1 1/2 lbs.
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1  1/2 teaspoons crushed rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced finely
  • 1 teaspoon crushed rosemary

Directions:

  1. Mix butter, garlic, and 1 teaspoon rosemary in a bowl until well blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Place the pork chops in a shallow dish or mixing bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, 1  1/2 teaspoons rosemary, paprika, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the pork chops and toss to coat well.
  4. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, lightly coated with cooking spray.
  5. Cook the pork chops for 3-5 minutes (depending on thickness), turn over and cook for an additional minute, or until the pork is just cooked through. Top each pork chop with 1 teaspoon of the garlic butter.
  6. Serve extra garlic butter over noodles or bread if desired.
