Pork chops with garlic cream. New recipe!!

Garlic lovers get ready to be swept off your feet. 12 whole garlic cloves softened while infusing the heavy cream, white wine and shallots, with a deep roasted garlic flavor I can only say: wow!! Blended to a puree and served alongside the pork chops… could just drink it all.

We love bone in chops. To get the pork chops to cook and yet stay tender, I always sear them first over high heat and then place them into the warm oven. . Make sure to pay attention to the smoke, if any, while cooking the chops in the oven.

This sauce could also be used over lamb.  Made mashed potatoes alongside.

  • In a small sauce pan melt the butter over medium-low heat and cook the shallots until softened, about 5 minutes.

  • Return to a bare simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic is completely tender, 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Transfer the garlic mixture to a blender and puree until very smooth, about 1 minute. Return the garlic sauce to the saucepan. It should be thick enough to cover the back of a wooden spoon but easy to pour. Set aside covered to keep warm.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Salt and pepper generously the pork chops. In a large skillet over medium high heat add the oil. When hot add the chops and sear them on each side, 2 minutes each sides.
  • Remove from the stove and place in the hot oven. Cook for 3 minutes at 375° then lower the heat to 300° for another 5 minutes. The chops need to be springy to the touch and golden brown on the outside.
