Not pork chops & applesauce, just pork chops. Some times, you just want a tasty, simple pork chop.

  • Thick cut pork loin chops (3/4″ to 1″ thick)
  • Kosher salt (or coarse sea alt if you want to be fancy about it)
  • olive oil
  • White wine

Brine the chops if you have time; otherwise sprinkle both sides with kosher salt and let rest 15 to 20 minutes.

Heat a skillet with a lid over medium-high heat, then add olive oil. Add chops, and leave them until browned, then turn and reduce heat to medium. When the second side starts to brown, add white wine about half way up the chops and cover the skillet. Braise until done to your liking.

Remove the chops to a cutting board and cover with foil. Raise heat to high, and cook wine to a syrup (add any juices that collect on the cutting board as you cook down the sauce).

Slice the chops and top with sauce.
