I'm happy to be partnering with Ohio Pork Council for this post because I'm a big fan of Ohio pork. I serve it to my family at least once a week. I love it because it's a great, lean protein with lots of flavor and is one of the most versatile proteins I cook with.
One of my favorite recipes for Ohio pork is Pork Chops Romano in Lemon-Butter Sauce. Made from boneless, pork loin chops pounded thin, it's a quick and easy meal for any day of the week. If you have a full-service butcher available to you, you can ask for the chops to be run through the tenderizer, eliminating the need to pound them thin. If you don't, no worries, your meat mallet will help make quick work of it. Pounding the chops thin helps move along the cooking process and makes the chops even more tender than they already are.
The lemon butter pan sauce compliments these chops so well and is very easy to make. The recipe calls for wine, but you can use all chicken stock/broth if you prefer. As far as I'm concerned, lemon and pork are flavors that are meant to be enjoyed together!
I served these Pork Chops Romano in Lemon-Butter Sauce with some pasta and steam green beans for a complete meal for a quick weeknight meal for my family that we all enjoyed!
