Lemon-Parsley Pork Chops with Sliced Potatoes and Broccoli

Here is a new way to try your pork chops.  I like them baked, grilled, pan seared, you name it...pork chops are just yummy!  This is a recipe I tried the other night that you and your family may enjoy.  I got it from Every Day Food's Great Food Fast cookbook. 

Season boneless skinless pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.  Add two tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet and sear both sides on a hot flame.  Add a 1/2 cup of water to the pan and put on the lid.  Turn down to a simmer and cook pork through (8-10 minutes).


Slice 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes and place into a microwavable bowl.  I use a micro-cooker with holes on top to release steam.  Add water to cover and microwave about 14 minutes.

In a small bowl add the zest of one lemon, two tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, 1 minced garlic clove, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. 

Remove the pork chops from the skillet and all lemon zest mixture to the pan and cook for about one minute.  Add pork back into the pan and turn off the burner. 


In another bowl juice one lemon (use the one zested) and use a garlic press to press one clove into the bowl.  While whisking, drizzle 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil to make a dressing for the potatoes.  Add salt and pepper to taste. 


Drain potatoes and drizzle with olive oil mixture to serve. 


Place pork chops onto a platter and drizzle pan drippings with lemon zest mixture on top. 



Serve with freshly steamed broccoli.

I changed the recipe a little bit, but here is the original recipe online:
