I take requests. For recipes, that is.
Want a dinner idea? Need your favorite meal “fixed?”
I’m your girl.
I’ve been doing this anyway for years…it’s SO awesome to share my love (ok, obsession) with all of you now. And those of you who have been asking, my blog and Pinterest page should be ready very soon!
I’m so excited.
Anyway, this 21 Day Fix Italian Pork Chops dinner is a request from a reader who has boneless pork chops, looking for ideas of how to use them.
I love honey on pork, but I’ve used it in several recipes this week. So I wanted to try something different. And also use what I had on hand.
I’m so glad I did. This was delicious and super easy. I LOVE one pan meals – and boneless pork cooks quickly. This looks way more involved than it really is, I promise.
These Italian Pork Chops go great with zoodles, noodles, rice or even just a side salad. I was actually shocked that my husband, who normally HATES tomatoes, ate these right up. And to deepen the flavor, you can drizzle on some balsamic vinegar for the last minute of cook time. So, so good!
Why is it important to sear pork chops?
In addition to making a nice crispy exterior, searing pork locks in the moisture so your pork chops will not dry out!
Can I sub a different kind of cheese for these Italian Pork Chops?
Of course! I love them with Feta Cheese, Goat Cheese, and/or Mozzarella! Switch it up!
What goes well with these Italian Pork Chops?
As I mentioned, these are amazing over zoodles or with spaghetti squash. My kids and husband also love this with brown rice and gluten-free noodles!
This was one of my first recipes for the blog and it’s still a favorite of ours – hope you enjoy!
