Monday Night Chops

It's Monday and I had to figure out what I was going to do with the pork chops I took out of the freezer last night.  When I got home from work I realized that I was out of Adobo seasoning - and did not want to go to the grocery store.  So here's what I made - and it was household approved:


5 pork chops, with bone
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
1 tsp dried rosemary
1 large onion
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp chopped chives
4 tbsp olive oil

  1. Sprinkle chops with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried rosemary, both sides
  2. Heat olive oil in frying pan on medium-high heat
  3. Pan fry chops until liquids run clear, turning chops half way through cooking (about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on thickness of chops)
  4. Remove chops and place on plate, keep warm
  5. Add chicken broth, more salt and pepper and 3/4 of chives to pan and bring to boil
  6. Slice onions and add to pan, sautee until onions are softened
  7. Pour onions and sauce over chops
After a long Monday at work - this was a really fast and easy recipe to make.  Enjoy!


  1. Those look good. What do you recommend with them? We normally do broccoli or corn with chops.

  2. Jon Boy - corn is definitely a winner with chops. You could also try adding fresh green beans to the onions and sauce and then serve over Jasmine rice. Yummy! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment!!

  3. My mouth is watering....I think with pork, grilled apples would be great!!! Bianca, any great ideas??? Would love to hear your expertise :) Thanks Jerri
