  • 4 rib or sirloin pork chops bone in about 1/2-inch thick*
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter divided
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp shredded lemon zest
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream


  • *Boneless chops may be substituted.
  • Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tbs. butter and let it melt.
  • Mix the flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper and 1/2 tsp garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork chops in seasoned flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  • Brown pork chops well on both sides, about 5-8 minutes per side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan you browned the chops, reduce the heat to medium and add the lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, wine, thyme and salt. Mix well.
  • Place pork chops back in pan, cover and reduce heat to low and cook for 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove pork chops to a serving platter, cover and keep warm in a 200 degree F oven while making sauce.
  • Increase the heat under the pan to medium. Blend in heavy cream and remaining butter. Let the mixture bubble and reduce by 25%–it should be like a thin gravy.
  • Drizzle sauce over pork chops and serve immediately.
