Are you as busy as we are right now? I love long summer days. So much more daylight hours to get things done. But sometimes it seems like having those extra hours just creates more things to do, though, doesn’t it?

This week, we’re getting ready for our annual vacation trip with the grandkids which this year is the Grand Canyon, Flagstaff, and Sedona area. Plus this weekend is Father’s Day. And BeeBop’s sister’s wedding. As I said, we’re just a little busy right now.

It’s days like these that I appreciate quick and simple recipes like these savory pork chops. They’re quick to prepare and cook while you get everything else ready for dinner.

How to Make Savory Pork Chops

To get started, trim any extra fat from four nice, large pork chops. Set the fat aside and sprinkle both sides of the chops generously with salt, pepper, and dried Italian seasoning.

Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray and add a small amount of the reserved fat that you trimmed from the pork chops. You only want enough to render about a tablespoon of fat in the pan.

When the fat has rendered, add the pork chops to the pan and brown them well on both sides. Add the chicken broth in with the pork chops and bring it up to a boil.

Cover the pan and reduce the heat to low. Simmer until chops are done throughout. Approximately 20-25 minutes.

Remove the pork chops from the pan and set them aside. Increase the heat to bring the liquid to a boil. Continue cooking until the pan juices are reduced to a thin sauce. Spoon the pan sauce over the chops and serve.

    1. Thanks, Drick! We’re so looking forward to this reunion and, most of all, some time away from work.

  1. Looks sooo tasty, love it. I should definitely try this pork chop.

  2. These pork chops look so easy and very moist (dry pork chops are always a worry). I’d love if you’d consider sharing this on our online Get Grillin’ & summer barbecue event (it’s entree week).
