Pan-seared pork chops with lemon garlic white wine sauce is a flavor packed dish that your family will be asking for over and over! Juicy pork chops are seared to perfection and cooked in a delicious garlic white wine sauce all in one pan. Simple, delicious and easy!
Pork chops are one of my favorite quick and easy to prep meals! They are so versatile, can take on a multitude of flavors and often can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. I really feel like pork is one of those meats that flies under the radar that doesn’t get the attention that it deserves. This recipe for pork chops with lemon garlic white wine sauce is a fabulous quick weeknight meal or elegant enough to serve for a special dinner as well.
In this dish, boneless pork chops are heavily seasoned and pan-seared to create a delicious crust and to lock in moisture. The lemon garlic wine sauce is packed with delicious springtime flavors and a perfect light (and dairy-free) sauce that is so good that you’ll want to sop up every last drop of the delicious sauce. Notes of garlic, lemon and white wine come together for a spectacular sauce that is oh-so-good! Serve with a rice or quinoa and side salad and you’re all set. This would be a great option for an Easter dinner as well!
When cooking light sauces such as this one, adding Holland House® Cooking Wines to my dishes is a game-changer in elevating everyday dishes into something extraordinary. Holland House Cooking Wines are a pantry staple and I keep each variety on hand (Marsala, Sherry, White, Red and White with Lemon) for a simple way to add some rich-flavor to my meals. They’re made with quality ingredients and perfectly blended seasonings to offer bold flavor that can withstand high temperatures. You can find Holland House Cooking Wines at Amazon and many grocery retailers nationwide.
If cooking wines are something that you’re unfamiliar with, I highly suggest giving them a try!
A Few Of My Favorite Ways To Use Cooking Wines:
Using cooking wine is a great way to get a deep, rich flavor in little time. Cooking wines are wonderful in enhancing and bringing out the flavors of your foods.
Use As A Cooking Liquid
You can use it when creating sauces or as a cooking liquid when cooking rice or quinoa. A splash of Holland House Cooking Wine in sauces (light or cream) and cream soups helps add flavor and it can be used to balance spicy recipes. For added flavor, use white cooking wine in place of 1/3 of the cooking liquid when making rice or quinoa.
Use For Marinades
Cooking wine is a fabulous option in marinades! This is especially true for tougher cuts as it will help to tenderize meat.
- White cooking wine is great for poultry, pork and seafood.
- Marsala cooking wine is a natural marinade for meats and poultry to enrich the flavor of pork or beef tenderloin.
- Red cooking wine is great for beef, lamb and pork.
This recipe for pan-seared pork chops in garlic wine sauce is so simple and can be prepared in less than 30 minute. With only 15 minutes of hands on prep and cooking, you can quickly put it together so you have more time to spend with family. To make it even better, it’s a one pan meal for less cleanup!
This dish is loaded with lots of garlic and lemon flavors that are melded together with the addition of Holland House white cooking wine. Make sure to allow extra time for the sauce to simmer and reduce to create a flavorful sauce with a rich depth of flavor. White cooking lends a dry and distinct flavor that well with light sauces (especially those with lemon undertones). You can choose to cook these chops on the stove top or transfer the pan to the oven to continue cooking.
I prefer to transfer to oven after searing the pork chops and making the sauce as it’s more hands off and the chops cook more evenly so make sure to use an oven-safe pan if going this route (cast iron pans are great for this.
It’s great served alongside rice or quinoa dishes and with steamed veggies or a side salad.
