Have you ever wanted a fancy meal without all of the hassle? This recipe is for you. These Garlic Rosemary Pork Chops are full of bold savory flavor that's perfectly balanced by sweet roasted grapes.
I'm super excited about this recipe. It's simple, boldly flavored, and somewhat fancy - without all of the fussiness of difficult cooking methods or hard to find ingredients.
I used bone-in pork chops that are seasoned with garlic and herbs. Then, I took all of the juice that's rendered from the pork chops and dunked the grapes in them and roasted them for about 20 minutes.
The end result? An easy and delicious dish that's pretty impressive.
I just love seeing people's reaction when they eat meat with fruit. There's something about the combination of sweet and savory recipes that really appeals to my senses.
Admittedly, I do have quite the sweet tooth. I really enjoy looking for ways to incorporate my love of sweets, even with savory recipes.
Start by seasoning the pork chops. Mix together rosemary, garlic powder, smoked paprika together. Season both sides with salt and pepper and then sprinkle seasoning all over the chops, ensuring both sides are coated. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Add a little olive oil to a pan and add about 2-3 tbsps of butter. Warm over medium heat and add pork chops - sear on both sides and reduce heat to medium low and cook until the chops are fully cooked.
Remove the pork chops from the skillet/pan and set aside. Add grapes to the pan and spoon the leftover jus from the pork chops onto the grapes. Lightly drizzle honey on top and roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Let's have a serious conversation about cookware. If you've been following my blog for some time, you know that I'm a Calphalon cook. I have been using their cookware for quite some time now and I have put their pots and pans and bakeware through the ringer.
And guess what? Each pan has stood up to my crazy intense cooking days (and sometimes nights and mornings). They don't warp or scratch. Also, they conduct heat exceptionally well.
For this garlic rosemary pork chops recipe, I used the Premier Hard Anodized Nonstick Fry Pan (easily one of my favorite pans from Calphalon). This recipe calls for partial stove top cooking and partial oven cooking. This pan stands the test because I can use it for both. (I really love this feature because that means less dishes for me to clean after dinner - SCORE!) I mean, the pan can stand up to 450 degrees F in the oven!
When you head over to Calphalon to do a little holiday shopping, make sure to use the code "Britney25" at checkout for 25% off (I believe that clearance is excluded).
Red grapes! I wouldn't recommend using the green grapes as they have a bit more of a tart flavor. The red grapes are perfect for this recipe. As they roast in the oven, they become even sweeter and slightly caramelized.
No, but I highly suggest using bone-in pork chops if you can find them. The bone makes the meat more flavorful. However, if you only have/can only find boneless pork chops, you can use those too.
