Pork Chops alla Pizzaiola

  • Preparation Time7 mins

  • Serves2
  • DifficultyEasy
2 tbsp olive oil
2 (2.5cm) bone-in pork loin center-cut cutlets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1 (425g) tinned diced tomatoes, in juice
1 tsp herbes de Provence
1/4 tsp dried red chilli flakes, or more to taste
1 tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
1) Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper. Add the pork cutlets to the skillet and cook until they are brown and an instant-read meat thermometer inserted horizontally into the pork registers 70°C, about three minutes per side. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and tent with foil to keep them warm.

2) Add the onion to the same skillet and saute over medium heat until crisp-tender, about four minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juices, herbes de Provence, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Cover and simmer until the flavors blend and the juices thicken slightly, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and more red pepper flakes. Return the pork cutlets and any accumulated juices from the plate to the skillet and turn the pork chops to coat with the sauce.

3) Place one pork cutlet on each plate. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve.
