Pork Chop recipes are so versatile. I love that you can cook up the pork chops and top with a fantastic sauce and you have a delicious meal for any night of the week. This recipe is made fast by pan searing the pork chops, but you could also grill them and then pour the sauce over once plated. Either way you are guaranteed a delicious meal!
The simplicity of this meal is masked by it’s beautiful presentation and delicious blend of flavours. While we used pork chops you could easily substitute chicken breasts or pork tenderloin. The recipe is easy enough to make any night of the week and delicious enough you could serve it at a dinner party.
