"Everyone who has this loves it! It's surprisingly simple and quick. Garlic, rosemary, and white wine flavor the pork. The aroma is wonderful. Try steaming fresh broccoli, then frying it in the pan juices for a perfect side dish."

(1 inch thick) pork chops
dry white wine
fresh ground black pepper
crushed dried rosemary
A pretty darned accurate and authentic style of traditional Italian cooking! (See, we DO eat more than pasta and pizza, although this IS good with pasta, or roasted potatoes too!) Use olive oil and, if you can, fresh rosemary. And be sure not to overcook your chops or they'll be tough and dry. Growing up we always prepared chicken this way too--particularly good with a cut up fryer rather than boneless chicken breasts as you want to cook this long enough to infuse all these wonderful flavors into the meat. Simple yet delicious.
I thought this was sort of bland, but my husband liked it. I don't know if I would make it again. Only if he asks for it. I hate giving less than glowing reports as I know how hard people work on their recipes to make them just right. This one just wasn't for me. Thanks anyway.
I made these for the first time a year and a half ago. It is a great recipe. I do cut the salt to 1/2 teaspoon and actually increase the wine to almost a full cup. This allows a nice amount of sauce. For those who experience "tough" chops, the key to this recipe is thickness. The thicker the chop (get as close to 1-inch as you can) the better. Breakfast-cut or traditional pork chops will not work. They are too thin and will dry during the browning stage. Use the thicker center cuts and they will turn out great! Like other reviewers, I slice fresh yellow onion and mushroom and add them in the last few minutes of simmering. If you're looking for a new spin on comfort foods, this is the recipe for you to try! Goes perfectly with mashed potatoes and green beans sauteed in soy sauce and minced garlic.
Very good recipe for pork chops. I used olive oil instead of butter to brown the chops, since I didn't have any wine on hand I used apple juice (the light apple flavor was great with the pork), and I just cooked and turned them until they were done. Came out great! Delicious and pretty tender. Great mix of flavors.
AWESOME!!! But, 20 minutes is not long enough to cook. I also do this with a pork loin and cook in the crock pot, and everyone who tries it LOVES it! And it smells ssoooo good while it cooks. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!!!
the recipe works great, but try using fresh rosemary and it gets much better. also, with chops, do a 1 hour brine with salt and brown sugar to keep the meat moist and add flavor-it works great.
WOW! This is a fantastic recipe. Very easy and VERY delicious! I always use a fresh rosemary (you'll want to use about 3 tsp.)
This was very good. I made this twice. The second time I added some finely chopped onion and portabella mushroom when I added the sauce and it was even better.
