We love pork, and I fix pork chops frequently. But I needed to branch out and find a fancier way to fix them once in a while! I think this awesome cream sauce qualifies as fancy. Hope you enjoy!

3When chops are nicely browned on both sides, cover pan and cook chops until done. Allow to rest for 3 minutes in sauté pan. Remove chops from pan and keep warm.
Add brandy to sauté pan, stirring with wire whisk to deglaze pan and to capture any yumminess left in pan; reduce over high heat until liquid is syrupy and glazed.
