Lemon Butter Pork Chops with Potatoes and Spinach

Joyce Tyo


I love spinach and wanted to create a recipe that would use the spinach without wilting. We are fond of pork chops and I thought I could make an easy recipe that would be yummy and memorable.
We like lots of butter and lemon on this entree. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
