Directions See How It's Made
- In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Dredge chops in flour mixture and shake off excess (dredge just before sautéing or they will become gummy).
- In large sauté pan, heat olive oil over over medium heat until haze forms, then add butter. Sauté garlic until lightly golden; discard. Sauté chops in two batches until lightly browned on both sides. Remove and set aside.
- Discard most of the pan drippins, leaving about 2 Tablespoons of reserved liquid. Sauté onion and peppers over medium heat, stirring constantly and scraping up any browned fragments left in the bottom of the pan. Set vegetables aside and remove pan from heat. Return chops to pan in a slightly overlapping pattern add chicken broth and stir. Arrange vegetables over chops and sprinkle olives on top.
- In a small bowl, combine vinegar and sugar. Stir mixture together until sugar is completely dissolved (this is best done with your index finger so that you can feel when sugar is dissolved.) Spoon vinegar mixture on top of olive-vegetable mixture.
- Cover pan and turn heat to low. Simmer, basting frequently with pan juices, until chops are extremely tender when tested with the tip of a knife (about 15 minutes).
- Serve chops on a platter with a border vegetables on top.
