Expert Tips

  • Substitute use 4 bone-in pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick for the boneless chops. Cook pork chops uncovered about 5 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook about 10 minutes longer or until pork chops are no longer pink in center.
  • Make pork chops and keep warm as directed above. Add 1/4 cup dry sherry to skillet. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly to loosen browned bits from bottom of skillet. Stir in 1/2 cup whipping cream, 1 tablespoon country-style Dijon mustard, 2 teaspoons chopped chives, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper. Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently, 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve sauce over chops.
  • Omit all ingredients except pork chops. Mix 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1 teaspoon chipotle chili pepper powder, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne), 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper in small bowl; rub on both sides of chops. Cook as directed above. (Pork chops will get very dark from the spice coating.)
