DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve the pork chops either whole or sliced, topped with the blueberry sauce and fresh parsley.
