I would like to apologize for my broken promise. This week I have been a bit under the weather and haven't posted a recipe yet. I haven't really prepared anything, so I'm going to share with you an all-time favorite of mine. It's really easy.
Basil and Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops
- 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
- 3 or 4 fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick
Coat both sides of pork chops with brown sugar mixture.
Heat remaining oil in skillet over medium heat. Cook pork chops 7-8 minutes on each side, flipping once.
Tip: Make sure you don't over-heat your skillet or the glaze will burn.
These are great to make on one of those nights when you really don't want to cook. The mess is minimal and they're quick. In the summer I serve these tender, juicy pork chops with summer squash and zucchini over caramelized red onions. If you decide to give them a try, let me know how they turn out!
