Easy Thin Boneless Pork Chop Recipe

Easy Thin Boneless Pork Chop Recipe - Found this recipe after finding thick cut pork chops. My husband is super picky when it comes to this cut of meat, and was very reluctant when I suggested it as a meal. I found this way of cooking them and thought, what the hey, it's Ree Drummond and all her food always looks delicious.
I'm soooo glad I followed this very simple, quick recipe!!! The chops came out so flavorful and moist! I did most of the cooking in the sauté pan and finished in the oven! I can't wait to do these again. And my husband was looking for seconds!! Very successful and delicious recipe!!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound tomatillos, husks removed
  • ½ cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 1 fresh jalapeno or serrano chile pepper, halved and seeded*
  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1/3 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 tablespoons pepitas, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces boneless pork loin chops
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup crumbled queso fresco (1 ounce)

Directions

  1. In a covered large saucepan cook tomatillos, onion, jalapeno, and garlic in a large amount of boiling water about 8 minutes or until tomatillos turn light green. Drain.
  2. In a blender combine the tomatillo mixture, cilantro, pepitas, honey, and the 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cover and blend until smooth.
  3. Trim excess fat from pork chops. Sprinkle chops with additional salt and pepper. In a large skillet cook chops in hot oil over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until browned, turning once.
  4. Add 1 1/2 cups of the tomatillo mixture to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until chops are slightly pink in the centers (145 degrees F).
  5. Let stand for 3 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with queso fresco to serve.
Tip: Because Chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with Chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
