A few herbs and a little wine and olive oil are all you need to take your dinner to another level. Volare's Chef Josh Moore is here to share his recipe for pan-seared pork chops.
Pan Seared Pork Chop with White wine, olive and butter sauce
4 center cut, frenched 10oz Pork Rib Chops Salt & Pepper 2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil ½ cup Mixed Olives (cut in ½'s) 1 tsp. Fresh Chopped Basil 1 tsp. Fresh Chopped Italian Parsley ¼ tsp. Fresh Chopped Oregano ¼ tsp. Fresh Chopped Rosemary 1 cup White Wine 1 cup Chicken Stock 3 Tbsp. Butter Flour
Heat olive oil in a sauté pan until it begins to smoke. Season the pork chop with salt and pepper, place the pork chop in the hot oil. Sear both sides until golden brown and place in a 425¢ª oven until desired temperature is reached (I recommend Medium internal temp of 145¢ª). Remove from oven and return to a burner on high. Deglaze pan with white wine and allow to reduce by ½. Add the olives, herbs, and chicken stock. Roll the butter in the flour to coat well. Drop butter pats into the sauce and reduce until nape. Serve with starch and vegetables, Enjoy!
