Chef Chuck's Lemon Pork Chops

Arrosto di Maiale al Limone

The aromas from the lemon pork chops was intoxicating. The potatoes were so lemony and the pork chops were tender and moist. A great combination of flavors for a lovely dinner.

Lemon Pork Chops
2 pork chops
zest of 1 lemon, juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
2 large potatoes, thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
a sprig of rosemary, chopped
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper
1/2 cup vegetable broth

Wash and pat dry the chops, flour both sides. Heat oil in a large pan and brown both sides. Add potatoes, garlic, rosemary, bay leaf, zest of one lemon and the juice, garlic, salt and pepper and broth. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until internal temperature is 160 degrees. Let rest for 10 minutes before cutting. Serves 2
