Lemon Garlic Pork Chops

lemon garlic pork chopsI made some pork chops for dinner with a delicious breaded crust for dinner. They made a nice gravy, so I paired them with some mashed potatoes (which my family loves) and a salad.

2-4 pork chops
1 lemon, juiced and zested
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 medium white onion, sliced
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup vegetable broth
salt and pepper, to taste

chops3Mix together the brown rice flour and the lemon zest.  Sprinkle the pork chops on each side with a bit of salt and pepper, then coat each side with the flour -shaking off any excess.

In a large skillet on medium heat, heat the olive oil. Cook the chops on each side 2-4 minutes (until browned, thinner chops will take closer to 2 minutes per side). If they don’t all fit into the pan at once, set them aside and cook the other ones.  Add the sliced onions to the skillet and cook until soft.

chops2Reduce the heat to medium low and add all the chops back to the pan along with the vegetable broth and lemon juice.  Allow the chops to simmer 5-8 minutes in the sauce and allow the sauce to thicken up a bit. Serve right away.
