Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Wine Sauce
Calories 332 per serving
1/2 cup Marsala wine (I used the rose geranium wine)
2 t. cornstarch
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 thin boneless pork loin chops, trimmed
1/4 t. kosher salt
1/4 t. freshly ground pepper
2 t. (we used more 2 T. at least) extra virgin olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
(1 clove garlic, minced)
3 t. chopped fresh oregano or 1 t. dried
3 t. chopped fresh chives, divided
1 cup low-fat milk
(Omitted 4 slices thin prosciutto, chopped)
1. Mix 2 T.wine and cornstarch in a small bowl; set aside.
2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper (and I used some granulated garlic), then dredge in the flour.
3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the pork chops. Cook until well browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add prosciutto to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until browned, about 1 minute. (I did not use the prosciutto) Add onion (and garlic) and cook stirring often, until it starts to soften and brown 2 to 3 minutes. Add the remaining 6 tablespoons wine, oregano and 1-1/2 t. chives and bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Add milk and the reserved cornstarch mixture to the pan; adjust the heat to maintain a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened and reduced slightly, 4 to 6 minutes.
4. Return the pork chops and any accumulated juice to the pan and simmer, turning to coat, until heated through 1 to 2 minutes. (I cooked them for about 10 additional minutes.)
Serve the chops topped with the sauce and garnished with the remaining 1-1/2 t. chives.
The Herbal Husband loved them and so did I. The Jets beat the Patriots! One more game in Pittsburgh! Here we go Steelers, here we go! The quote of the day from Mrs. Reppert's TwelveMonth Herbal:
A garden is the mirror of a mind. It is a place of life, a mystery of
green moving to the pulse of the year, and pressing on and pausing
the while to its own inherent rhythms.
-- Henry Beston
