For the Salsa Verde
On a sheet pan, place the tomatillos, garlic, jalapeños, and onion.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Toss to coat everything with oil.
Place under the broiler until everything is charred. About 6-8 minutes.
Add all the ingredients to a blender.
Blend until smooth.
Set aside until ready to use.
For the Pork Chops:
Heat olive oil in a large skillet.
Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
Sear the meat on all sides. About 3-5 minutes on each side. Be sure to sear the fatty ends too.
Remove the meat from the pan.
Add the jalapeño and onion. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the salsa verde. Scrape the bottom of the pan, removing the brown bits.
Return the pork chops to the pan.
Cover with a lid.
Reduce heat to medium.
Cook for 12 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
For boneless pork chops, cook with lid on for 5-7 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
For thick cut, bone-in pork chops cook for 20 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
Searing the meat will lock in flavor.
To save time, use store-bought salsa verde.
To make this dish less spicy, omit the jalapeño in the skillet for the Pork Chops.
There’s a lot of flavor at the bottom of the pan. Be sure to scrape up the brown bits.
