Wine Tip

Chardonnay, 2013
A medium to full-bodied Chardonnay wonderfully complements pork chops, especially one from California’s Russian River Valley. The wine’s floral notes, paired with the silky mouth feel allow the pork to maintain its subtle flavor.

Step 1

Pork chops with corn salad

Crush garlic clove and set aside. In a large frying pan, heat up some vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add pork chops to pan, season with salt, and sear for approx. 1 – 2 min. Flip chops, season once more with salt, and sear the other side for another 1 – 2 min. While searing, add garlic and butter. Season with pepper. Transfer chops to a baking dish and bake in the oven at 200°C/400°F for approx. 10 – 15 min.
