Pan-Seared Pork Chops

This updated, slimmed-down version of classic pork chops will chase away the winter chill every time.

  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 pork chops, trimmed of fat (about 1 pound)
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup Chicken Stock to Make 1 1/2 Quarts, or low-sodium canned
  • 1 1/4 cups Marsala wine

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Combine the salt and pepper and dried thyme and rub on the pork chops. Press a sprig of thyme into each chop. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add the pork chops, thyme-side down. Sear 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until just browned and the interior is no longer bright pink. Transfer to a warm plate.

  2. Step 2

    Pour off the fat from the skillet, return to the heat, add the stock and wine, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops and serve.
