Pork Chops With Lemon Thyme Cream Sauce
October 23, 2016
"Siggi & I sit right next to each other at our PC's, but he still managed to surprise me by sending me an email w/a link to this recipe = His version of the strongest hint he can give me. The link took me to the 12Tomatoes site, but it turned out that the recipe had been adapted from the creolecontessadotcom site where Lisa revealed its true origin. The recipe was taken from the "Cupboard To Table" cookbook by Judy Hannemann, a blogger whose site is midnightbakerdotcom -- A complex lineage that finally gives credit where it's due. All that said, I'm entering it here so I can surprise Siggi by making his wish come true. I hope it lives up to his expectations. Give it a try & let me know what you think. ENJOY!"

Heat a heavy skillet over med-high heat. Add 2 tbsp butter & let it melt.
Mix the flour, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper & 1/2 tsp garlic powder in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork chops in seasoned flour mixture, shaking off excess.
Brown pork chops well on both sides, about 5-8 min per side. Remove & set aside.
In the same pan, reduce the heat to med & add the lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, wine, thyme & salt. Mix well.
Place pork chops back in pan, cover, reduce heat to low & cook 15-20 min.
Remove pork chops to a serving platter, cover & keep warm in a 200F oven while making the sauce.
Increase the heat under the pan to med. Blend in heavy cream & remaining butter. Let the mixture bubble & reduce by 25% (it should be like a thin gravy).
Drizzle sauce over pork chops & serve immediately.
NOTE FROM ME: This is a rich, special occasion meal & should be served w/simple side dishes like mashed potatoes & a steamed veggie or the steamed veggie w/a nice salad.
