“Cheap and Easy” Pork Chops with Lemon




This “cock-pleasing” pork chop recipe was given to me by a trampy former roommate who stole my shoes (I ransacked her bedroom and found them hidden under her mattress.)  Hate the girl, love the recipe.  The pork gives you the panache of meat without the price tag  – each chop should cost you just under 2 bucks.  To upgrade the dish, or if you’re feeling flush, go for a veal chop done the same way.




2 pork loin Chops (with bone in, 3/4 inch thick–ish)
juice from one lemon
1/4 cup of olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano or sage or mixed Italian spice
two-three cloves garlic, chopped




Mix the marinade ingredients in small bowl, then add the chops.  Let marinate for fifteen minutes.


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.


Heat oven proof skillet on medium-high heat. Sear pork chops on each side (2-3 minutes per side) then place in hot oven for 5 minutes, or until pork is cooked, but not dry.


Serve with boiled baby potatoes tossed in butter, salt and pepper and steamed asperagus drizzled in olive oil (if asparagus seems too price for the season, try steamed carrots in butter and curry (that’s how the slutty roommate served hers.)


I also make this dish on my barbeque (about 4 min per side, which may be too little for the bacteria-cautious, but I’d rather risk food poisoning than overcook my meat), I also grill the asparagus (just a minute or two) instead of steaming.
