It’s still cold out there and we want some hearty food to enjoy indoors. You can still grill some beautiful cuts of meat and that’s how the restaurants do it anyway, right? Pork chops can sometimes be overlooked but they already have so much flavour, you don’t need many extra ingredients. Let’s show you how to make the best butter-basted pork chops with butter, garlic, lemon and rosemary which is already in your pantry.
Make sure that your skillet is on very high heat and cut through some of the fat cap so they don’t curl up. Give them the best sear on one side and when turning, add the butter, garlic and rosemary. Tip it to one side and baste as it cooks. If you have a particularly thick-cut chop, you can add it into the oven for 5-8 minutes to finish cooking before resting for another 5 minutes. Serve with your choice of vegetables, baked potato and smother the chops in the remaining garlic butter.
The time is perfect to cook like a restaurant chef. Butter-basted pork chops are juicy, full of flavour and a great meal to enjoy this winter.
