I originally discovered this recipe by Chef Gerry Garvin last year for pan-seared turkey chops... but I decided to use, "the other white meat" and tried pork chops. This is one of those easy dishes you can make without any trouble, but taste good enough to convince people that you've slaved in the kitchen all day preparing. Soul Food Seasoning is sold in most grocery stores... it's a bit like regular seasoned salt but with just a hint of spiciness to it... and, of course, full of "soul" too! ;-)
Pan-Seared Pork Chops with a White Wine Sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 or 4 medium sized, boneless pork chops
Soul Food Seasoning
1 cup white wine
1 tablespoons butter
1. In a large saute pan heat olive oil over medium heat.
2. Rinse pork chops. Season with Soul Food Seasoning and ground black pepper, making sure to pat seasoning into the meat to seal in flavor.
3. Sear chops in pan for 9-12 minutes per side or until golden brown. Remove chops from pan; lay on a paper towels to soak up excess oil.
4. Add white wine to remaining juices in the pan, stirring to loosen any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring sauces to a slight simmer for 3 to 5 minutes; whisk in butter to finish.
5. Place chops on a serving plate and drizzle sauce over the chops.
