If you love Italian sausage, this pork chop recipe is for you! It’s packed with the flavor of sweet Italian sausage without all the fat. This recipe is inspired by a Frugal Gourmet recipe; I used to watch his PBS show when my older kids were toddlers.
Italian Pork Chops
Makes 4 servings
4 boneless pork chops (about 1 pound total)
1 TBL fennel seed
1/2 TBL dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
2 TBL olive oil
1/2 cup red wine
Dry pork chops with paper towel and place on a sheet of waxed paper. Sprinkle half the spices over pork chops. Cover with a second sheet of waxed paper, flip, and season the other side. Use a heavy-bottomed glass to press the spices into the pork chops.
Heat olive oil in a heavy skillet. Add pork chops to hot oil and brown on medium heat, 3 minutes per side. Do not overcook!
Pour wine over the top of the chops, cover the skillet, and simmer 5 minutes more.
