Peppery Garlic Chops

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by GomersGirl5

My mom always cooked pork chops with just salt and black pepper... I took it to the next level. Very simple and VERY flavorful. If you like garlic and love black pepper you'll find these to your liking!

I made the mistake of thinking I could just cook the chops for half of the time on each side. So they came out a little burned on one side after the first 10 minutes! Next time I will turn and turn and turn during the cooking process. I had a lot of marinade and juices in the pan, so I threw in some chopped onions and it made a nice sauce to top the chops. It was a bit too peppery for my likings, but my roommate (who doesn't like spicy food) loved it.
