  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage or 1/4 teaspoon dried
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine


  1. Season pork generously with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over medium; add pork. Cook until browned and opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate, and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm.

  2. Make sauce: Add shallot to skillet; cook over medium, stirring until softened, 1 to 2 minutes. Add sage, thyme, and wine. Simmer until sauce is reduced to about 1/3 cup, 2 to 3 minutes; stir in any accumulated juices from plate with meat. Transfer chops to plates, drizzle with sauce, and serve with Parmesan Rice.

    This meal needs more flavor. I will double the amount of sage in the future to make it taste better.

    I really liked this recipe only its 10 to 12 minutes per side. Also, I used broth and ?Ǭ? teaspoons for sage/thyme.

    a 6oz pork chop is slightly thin, not thick.

    There is no way you can cook a pork chop that thick all the way through to "opaque" in 3-4 minutes per side...
