Chef Chuck's Pork Chops and Peppers

Braciole di Maiale

Fork tender pork chops, just like Mom used to make. I gave Mom a call this morning to let her know that her recipe was going to be my next post. She was excited and went over the whole recipe again, wow, I'm so lucky to have her! The vinegar flavors released from the peppers complimented the pork chops and the potatoes so well.
Another simple, yet fantastic, Italian dish.

Pork Chops and Peppers
2 organic pork chops, bone in
1 jar, 16 ounce sweet cherry peppers,
drained, remove seeds, cut in half
2 potatoes, thinly sliced
1/2 tablespoon butter

1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Let meat rest till room temperature. Wash and pat dry chops, salt and pepper both sides. In a large frying pan heat butter and olive oil brown pork chops 3 minutes on each side. Add sliced potatoes over top cover with lid and simmer for 30 minutes. Then add vinegar peppers and simmer an additional 15 minutes with lid on.
Buon Appetito

  4. Does your mamma have a trick to cook thick pork chops wothout them becoming leathery? Let's compare theories... Great idea, will try it soon.

  5. Chef Chuck there you go again. Those pork chops look amazing. Actually, the entire plate of food looks amazing.

  6. Yes Lola, The pork chops were 1" thick. They were tender because the potatoes covered them, plus the lid on top helped keep it moist! Grazie, Good Luck! :)

  7. Perfection. That is what the title should be!
