Ingredients

  • 8 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 8 ounces each)

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Three ounces (a serving the size of a deck of cards) of cooked sirloin steak, pork loin, tuna, chicken or turkey breast provides about 25 grams of protein.
  • Unless otherwise specified, Taste of Home recipes are tested with lightly salted butter. Unsalted, or sweet, butter is sometimes used to achieve a buttery flavor, such as in shortbread cookies or buttercream frosting. In these recipes, added salt would detract from the buttery taste desired.
