This is the other recipe based from a recipe in Mark Bittman's, "How to Cook Everything" that I use regularly. I've omitted the juice from one lemon and 1/4C parsley as we prefer the taste without it. I've also tweaked the garlic, we're huge fans. A fave in our household.

Also, make sure you use thick chops--I buy a whole tenderloin and have them cut 3/4-1 inch thick.

How to Make Sherry Garlic Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat a skillet that you have a lid for on med-high for 2-3 minutes, add the olive oil. When you see the first bit of smoke put the chops in and turn the heat to high. Brown chops on both sides, no more than 2 min per side. Moving them in the pan helps to brown them better, I was busy making our side and didn't bounce them around enough.
  2. Add garlic and wine, reduce heat to medium. Cook until wine is almost gone, turning once, another few minutes. Add stock, cover, and cook (turning a couple of times )on low for 10-15 minutes.
  3. I cook my chops as he describes--when I cut into them they are slighly pink but turn pale quickly. If you prefer them more done cook to your liking; either way remove chops when done and set aside.
  4. Add sherry, scrape bottom of pan to deglaze, and cook on medium for a minute or so until slightly reduced. Add butter (or oil) and garlic and cook, on med-high, until syrupy. Pour some of the sauce over chops, pour the rest in a gravy boat. My eldest pours the sauce over the potatoes and will sometimes dip her green beans in it as well.
