Jersey Girl Pork Chops

Total Time:
35 min
20 min
15 min

4 servings

  • 4 center-cut pork chops (about 2 1/2-inches thick)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup hot and sweet cherry peppers, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • Smashed red potatoes, for serving
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Liberally sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat the canola oil in a large ovenproof skillet or grill pan set over high heat. Once the oil is hot, sear the pork chops for about 2 minutes on each side. Stick the pan in the oven to finish cooking the pork, 5 to 6 minutes. This should result in medium to medium-well chops, still slightly pink in the middle. If you prefer a more well-done chop, add a few more minutes to the cooking time in the oven.

  • While the pork is in the oven, heat the olive oil in a large saute pan set over high heat, and add the garlic. Saute until the garlic just begins to brown, and then add the peppers to heat through.

  • Place a pork chop on each plate. Toss the parsley in with the peppers and garlic and saute for another minute, then top each chop with 1/4 cup of the pepper mixture. Serve with smashed red potatoes or your favorite side.
