Modenese Pork Chops

* 4 tablespoons butter
* 4 (1 inch thick) pork chops
* 1/2 cup dry white wine
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
* 1/2 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
* 2 cloves garlic, minced

DIRECTIONS

1. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook chops in butter, turning once to brown evenly.
2. Pour in wine, and season with salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic. Simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until chops are tender. Transfer pork chops to serving plates, and spoon sauce over the meat.



I made these last night and good grief were they GOOD! I halved the butter to make things a bit more healthy. And kept a lid on while simmering because our chops were really really thick. But the sauce is to die for. Next time I think I'll butterfly the chops and double sauce so every little bit is swimming in that deeeeeeelicious flavor!

Hmm..I just realized I have a pork loin in the fridge that needs to be cooked.

I wonder how it would work with that?

I was thinking of frying some chopped onions and mushrooms in the butter after I fried the meat...then adding the wine etc.

What do you think?
