Lemon Parsley Pork Chops
Slightly adapted from Martha Stewart
·Zest from 1 lemon
·2 tsp dried parsley
·1 tsp minced garlic
·Salt and fresh black pepper, to taste
·1 TBS extra virgin olive oil
·4 boneless pork chops
In a small bowl, combine the lemon zest, parsley, minced garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat extra virgin olive oil over medium heat. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in the skillet until browned, 3-4 minutes per side.
Add 1/2 cup water to the skillet; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low; cover, and simmer gently until the pork is cooked through, 8-10 minutes. Transfer the pork chops to a plate; sprinkle with the lemon-parsley mixture and serve.
