Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Chops


Prosciutto -- air-dried Italian ham -- has a sweet, salty taste and a pleasant aroma. Because it is so flavorful, a little goes a long way. Try serving these pork chops with Lemony Lima Beans with Parmesan.

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (5 to 6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 4 slices prosciutto (about 2 ounces total)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Lemon wedges, for serving (optional)


  1. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Sprinkle thyme leaves over each, pressing, to help them adhere to the meat. Wrap 1 prosciutto slice around middle of each chop, like a belt; press ends to seal.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Cook chops until golden brown and cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes per side. (Cook in two batches, if necessary, to avoid crowding.) Serve chops with lemon wedges, if desired.

    So delicious and so easy! I didn't have fresh thyme on hand, but dried worked fine.
