Pork Chop Pizziola Recipe
Pork is good for you!
While I was growing up in New York, my mother made dinner every night. She was a very good cook preparing very nutritious meals for her family. We never had fast food…but I have to say that we did have pizza night and sandwiches every once in a while. A very big treat was bringing home freshly made mozzarella from Brooklyn, thinly sliced Prosciutto and crusty Italian Bread. Put all of that together with some extra virgin olive oil and you have one really tasty delicious sandwich.
Living in Springfield, MO I have to say I miss a really good sandwich. One of my mothers “go to meals” was Veal Chops Pizziola. She came out from Brooklyn to visit me last week so I thought that I would prepare for her my version of Pizziola with Pork. So here goes, here is my take on Pizziola with this Delicious pork chop recipe.
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (1 inch thick) Circle B Ranch Pork Chops (about 10 ounces each)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 24 ounce jar of Marina’s Tomato Sauce
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/4 teaspoon dried pepper flakes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook until they are brown. Cook the pork chops until an instant read thermometer register 150 degrees.Serve the pork chops with pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Add a salad and broccoli and you will have a delicious easy dinner!
Transfer the pork chops to a platter and cover with aluminum foil to keep them warm.
Add the onion to the same skillet and saute over medium heat until tender. Add a jar of Marina’s Italian Tomato Sauce, salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil and lower the flame to low. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
Season the sauce and return the pork chops to the skillet and heat for about 5 minutes.
