We are back once again for another round of Tasty Tuesday, and for today I am featuring a very tasty pork recipe! This recipe uses pork loin chops and something a bit different: Crown Royal! Are you ready to head on into the kitchen? I am! So, let’s go!
4 boneless pork loin chops, 3/4″ thick
2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1/2 tsp fresh ground sea salt
2 TBS flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley
2 TBS extra virgin olive oil
1 medium shallot, chopped finely
3 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
4 oz. pancetta, diced
3/4 cup Crown Royal
1/4 cup of heavy cream
Take the pork out an hour before cooking to allow it to warm up. This helps the meat to cook more evenly. After the hour, mix the fresh ground pepper with the sea salt. Rub this mixture into the meat on all sides.
In a shallow dish, mix together the flour, garlic powder and parsley flakes. Take each chop and dredge in the flour mixture to coat. Shake off any excess flour.
In a large skillet, heat the oil on medium heat. When it is hot add in the pork chops and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until browned.
When done set these aside and cover with foil…
Turn the heat down on the pan to medium low. Add in the shallots and garlic, and be sure to scrape up any browned bits from the pork.
When the onions are translucent, add in the pancetta.
Cook the onion, garlic and pancetta until it has caramelized as shown in this next photo!
Now let’s crown the pork! Add in the Crown Royal slowly and stir as you add in the fluid.
Cook until it almost disappears, which should be only a couple of minutes. Next, add in the heavy cream.
When this has warmed, add back the pork chops to the pan, turning them in the sauce and heat through. This should take only a couple of minutes.
Turn the heat off the pan and serve this up, covering the pork with a bit of sauce!
Doesn’t that look good? I hope that you try this dish out! It is fairly simple and has huge flavors.
Thank you for taking the time today to visit, and stay tuned next week for another edition of Tasty Tuesday!
Be well… ^..^
