Skillet Pork Chops with Zucchini
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 35 min.
I first tried this recipe a few years ago and it is definitely top notch. I use chicken broth instead of the water, and bring it up to one cup, so I can finish in the oven at 350. Amazing dish, always a hit.
Oh and I think I'd just leave the water completely out of it.
About half way through I realized this was going to be way too salty. 3 teaspoons??? I should have known better. I added a little more water to maybe cut some of the salt, but it didn't help and the texture of the chops was just horrible, kind of mushy. If I ever did this again I'd cut the salt down to 1 tsp and pound the flour mixture into the chops a little bit.
This taste as good as an entree from a good restaurant. It is delicious as is but I would cut back on the salt next time. Will definitely be making again since husband thought it was superb!!!!
Easy, not much watching. The chop was superb - both taste and tenderness. I'd cook the zucchini less; I'll try 15 minutes next time. I only had enough Parmesan for the chops, so I tossed some mozzarella on top at the end and stuck the cover back on for a few minutes - delicious.
Sorry I forgot to click the stars
I had my husband cook this for supper. It was delicous!
I like the blend of spices for taste but not the preparation of the dish. I do not use flour on Pork Chops at all. I spice the chops with a small amount of salt, granualated garlic and fresh ground Black Pepper and then fry them in olive oil on med heat till browned. I prefer squash to be cooked to crisp tender by steaming them about 2 to 3 mins or less and no salt on them. The onions I would saute with sliced mushrooms in a Tbsp of Butter, till the onions are clear and lightly browned. Then make a mushroom gravy using a can of mushroom soup. I prefer fresh mashed garlic potatoes and also green peas as side dishes. The Chops would also be great dipped n Egg and coated with seasoned breadcrumbs and baked in the oven at 350 deg till no longer pink.
I only used this recipe as a guide. I didn't add the rest of the flour mixture to the skillet at the end, which would have made it too goopy. I cut the amount of salt by 2/3s, 1 tsp is plenty, the cheese has salt in it. Use a smoky paprika, it adds more depth. Also I removed the pork chops the last 5 minutes of cooking, covered it and let the veggies cook down a little. I added a pepper for color too.
I like the other rater thought this looked delicious, but the zucchini was soggy maybe should only be put in at the last 5-10 minutes. The taste was Ok, but nothing to get excited about. I do not think I will return to this recipe again.
