Pan Fried Pork Chops with Red Wine Sauce

Happy Wine Wednesday! Cooking with wine can really elevate a dish. Whether cooking with it or just simply pairing a wine with your meal. In this case we are cooking with it! I marinated these pork chops for at least 30 minutes before cooking them, this will help add extra flavor. I used my cast iron skillet to sear both sides of the pork chops as well. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, a stainless steel oven-safe pan will work as well. 🙂 BUT! If you have been debating on getting a cast iron skillet I would HIGHLY suggest going for it! It gives a much more even heat distribution, which leads to a more consist cook on your food! The red wine sauce is so simple to make and only takes about 10 minutes! Just the right amount of time while your pork chops rest! 🙂 Enjoy!!

  4. Marinate at room-temp for 30 minutes. If you would like to marinate longer that is great! Just make sure to bring to room temp for 30 minutes before cooking. This will help get a consistent cook throughout the chop.

  6. In a cast iron skillet or stainless steel oven safe pan, heat coconut oil or olive oil over medium-high heat.
  7. Shake off excess flour and place pork chops in skillet.
  8. Cook for 4-5 min per side or until golden brown.
  9. Place skillet in oven for 10 minutes.
  10. Place cooked Pork Chops on a plate to rest for 5-10 minutes.
