Health Highlights
Juicy and tender pork chops for a nice weekend meal!


4 chop (151 g) Pork chop, loin centre cut, bone-in, lean ((3/4 inch) thick; room temperature)
1 pinch Salt and pepper
2 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
1 medium White onion (chopped)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
2 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (seeded and cut into strips)
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup Vegetable stock/broth, low sodium (or water)
1 tsp, leaves Thyme, dried
1/2 tsp Marjoram (dried)


  1. Sprinkle the chops on both sides with the salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat and add the chops, onion, and garlic.
  3. Cook the chops for 5 minutes on one side, shaking the pan frequently so garlic doesn't burn, then turn chops and add the pepper strips.
  4. Cover and cook 5 to 8 minutes longer or until the internal temperature of pork registers at least 145°F (63°C).
  5. Remove the chops, onions, garlic, and peppers from the skillet and set aside, covered to keep warm.
  6. Add the Worcestershire sauce, water or broth, thyme, and marjoram to the drippings remaining in the skillet, scraping the bottom of the skillet with a rubber spatula to loosen the pan drippings that contain lots of flavors.
  7. Cook until the sauce thickens slightly, then return the pork and vegetables to the skillet.
  8. Cook for 1 minute longer to coat the pork with the sauce, then serve.
