Original recipe yields 4 pork chops



  1. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain skillet, reserving about 2 tablespoons bacon drippings.
  2. Season pork chops with kosher salt and black pepper; cook in reserved bacon drippings over medium-high heat until browned, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Pour white wine over the chops, reduce heat to medium-low, place a cover on the skillet, and cook 2 minutes more.
  3. Chop the bacon and add to the skillet along with the onion slices and garlic; replace cover and simmer until chops are no longer pink in the center, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove pork chops to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
  4. Whisk water and cornstarch together in a small bowl; stir into sauce remaining in skillet. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens. Pour sauce over pork chops to serve.

Not as flavorful as I would have hoped. Some changes I would make is to use a hearty red wine for the reduction,a little more bacon (2-3 slices chopped) and add some coarse ground pepper to taste in the sauce.



I thought this would be a 10-star entree looking at the ingredients, but it just didn't have enough flavor. I followed the instructions to the letter, but would cook this differently if I were to make it again. First, I'd saute the onions and garlic. And instead of adding the wine to the pan and then putting the lid on it, I'd let the wine cook down to get some flavor from it. It was looking pretty anemic, so I added a little bit of Kitchen Bouquet which gave it some eye appeal, but the flavor still was lacking. Sorry, won't be making this again, it was a disappointment for us.



I knew when I set out to make these that these chops were waaay too big, and I already had intentions of heating the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. That is, until I started eating it. So good I cleaned every bite and I confess without shame to picking it up with my fingers and gnawing on the bone to get every bit of it. Soooo tender, so flavorful, and I don't think the little bit of Montreal Steak Seasoning I seasoned them with or the chicken broth I substituted for the water were make or break additions. I'm confident that with bacon, garlic and white wine in the ingredients list I would have been happy with this just as is. I would just say watch the cooking time - I had relatively thick chops and simmering them for just several minutes, not 20 as indicated, kept them moist and tender and still cooked through. There are so many side dishes that would complement this (the gravy is excellent so buttered noodles immediately comes to mind) but I served this tonight with two other AR recipes, Spinach and Rice Alfredo, and Mushroom and Bacon Green Beans.
