One Skillet Chops

One Skillet Pork

Pork chops are a lot like chicken in the way that they’re extremely versatile. Really, you can do just about anything you want with them. And if you use thin, boneless chops, such as in this recipe, you can also be putting a dish on the table in mere minutes. Of course, you could also use pork tenderloin – another cut of pork that is very versatile – and just slice it thinly (I’d make them about an inch thick.)

4 boneless pork chops $5.72
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided $0.09
1 onion, diced $0.47
1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced $0.71
1 cup frozen green beans $0.66
1 cup frozen corn $0.66
2 tablespoons garlic powder $0.78
2 tablespoons dried sage $1.62
2 tablespoons tomato paste $0.89
1/4 cup capers, plus two teaspoons of the brine $2.49
1 cup beef broth $0.50
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped $0.25
Salt $0.01
Pepper $0.01

Total cost $14.86
Cost per serving $3.71

1.) Preheat the broiler and season the chops with salt and pepper.

2.) Place two tablespoons of the olive oil into a skillet set over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and sear on both sides for about two to three minutes per side, just until the meat has really carmalized and formed a nice crispy crust. Remove chops from the skillet to a plate and set aside.

3.) Lower the heat to medium under the skillet and add the remaining olive oil if you find the skillet is getting a bit dry. Add the onion, bell pepper, green beans, capers with the brine, and corn. Season with salt and pepper and cook for a few minutes until vegetables begin to soften and they’re all warmed through. Move all vegetables over to one side of the skillet.

4.) To the empty side of the skillet add the tomato paste, sage, and garlic powder and stir just to mix and start to cook. Then, pour the beef broth over top and stir to combine. Once these ingredients have been incorporated, move vegetables back over to fill up the entire skillet and mix to combine them with the sauce. Taste, and season with salt and pepper if needed.

5.) Arrange the pork chops over top of the vegetables, ensuring that they’re evenly spaced, and place in the oven under the broiler. Broil, for five to seven minutes, just until the chops are fully cooked through. Remove and sprinkle entire dish with chopped parsley

6.) Serve and enjoy!
