Classy, Sassy & a Bit Smartassy

The other night, J and I were both craving comfort food. We weren't feeling very well and just wanted to veg. I called my mom and asked her for a "homey" recipe. Here is what she gave me:

What You Will Need
-bone-in pork chops
-2 table spoons of olive oil
-1 small onion (1/3 cup finely diced the rest thinly sliced)
-2 cloves of garlic (one finely diced the rest thinly sliced)
-rosemary finely chopped
-1 cup white wine
-1/4 cup of orange juice
-paprika to taste
-sea salt to taste
-red pepper flakes to taste
-1/4 cup of butter

What You Will Do
1. preheat oven to 375*
2. place the butter in a large skillet on a medium to high heat and let melt. stir periodically until it starts to brown not burn! add diced onions
3. once onions have cooked down, place the butter/onion mixture, diced garlic, rosemary, orange juice, paprika, salt, and red pepper flakes into a food processor and blend well into a paste. 
4. rub the pork chops with paprika and salt then place in the same skillet you used for the onions on a medium high heat and get a nice sear on each side. 
5. place chops in an oven safe dish, pour the spice paste on top then add white wine to cover the bottom
6. add the thinly sliced onions and garlic over top then garnish with a sprig of rosemary and orange slices. 
7. pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes depending on thickness
8. let rest for 5 minutes and enjoy! 


we served ours with stuffing and grilled zucchini! 

mama always knows best with these homey recipes.

    1. *I'd be subbing in chicken for the pork chops in case that didn't make sense :-P

  6. My husband would love this! He likes cooking pork chops and finding new things to marinate them in. I bet this would be good with chicken too.

  7. We make pork chops quite often. I like using pesto to season them up but I'll have to try your version. Looks so good!
