Recipe by Mommy Diva
READY IN: 30mins




  • Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Lightly season the pounded chops with salt, pepper and thyme.
  • Place flour in a shallow bowl and toss the seasoned chops in the flour, coating completely then shaking off excess.
  • Place the chops in the hot skillet and sear meat on both sides to caramelize, about 2-3 minutes on each side.
  • Once the chops are done, remove them to a plate and tent with foil to rest while you make the pan sauce.
  • Place the skillet back on the stove over medium heat with another 1-2 tablespoons of EVOO.
  • Add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes. Add cherries to the shallots along with the lemon zest to warm through.
  • Add 1/2 cup of stock and let cook for another minute.
  • Add the remaining butter in small pieces, toss the sauce to combine.
  • Mix 1 tsp corn starch to 1/2 cup cold water and add slowly to sauce until desired thickness is achieved.
  • Simmer for 3-5 minutes to cook out starch flavor.
  • Pour pan sauce over the chops.
  • Serve with Simple Couscous Recipe #195545 as pictured for lovely presentation. Enjoy :).
