Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Season your pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and onion powder.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet on high heat. When the butter is melted, and your pan is hot, add the minced garlic and sauté a few seconds until fragrant. Add the pork chops and sear for a few minutes on both sides.
  3. Pour the broth (if using any), lemon juice, and cream over the seared pork chops. Move the pork chops around a bit to mix the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium.
  4. Add the asparagus to the pan. Let the meal simmer for 7-10 minutes, or until the sauce thickens. If the pork chops cook fully before the sauce thickens, remove them and set to the side while the sauce finishes. Serve and enjoy!
