I didn't have any shallots so I substituted sliced onion, only 1/2 of a small yellow onion. It was a much saltier dish than I expected. Perhaps it was the onion for shallots that made it that way. I expected it to be more sweet than it was, a different wine could have changed that also. While we finished it, I don't believe I'll try this again.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. Salt and pepper both sides of each pork chop. Heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high heat in an oven-proof skillet big enough to hold all four pork chops.
  3. Brown the pork chops, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the chops from the pan and transfer to an ovenproof platter; place in oven. Remove when the pork is just cooked through, about 10-12 minutes.
  4. While the pork chops are in the oven, prepare the sauce. Heat a tablespoon of oil on medium high heat in the same skillet you used to brown the chops.
  5. Sauté the shallots until soft and golden. Add the wine and water and let boil down for 1-2 minutes, scraping up the brown bits.
  6. Add the blueberries. When the skins begin to burst, add the lemon zest and juice. Let the sauce continue to boil and thicken until the pork chops are ready.
  7. Once the pork chops are ready, remove the pan from the oven and place the pork chops on a cutting board and let them rest while finishing the sauce.
  8. Turn the heat off under the saucepan and stir in the butter until it is completely melted. If using unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt.
  9. Serve the pork chops either whole or sliced, topped with the blueberry sauce and fresh parsley.
