Last night I was desperately in need of a trip to the grocery store but hadn't gone yet. I came up with this recipe with the last few ingredients in the house and the results were really delicious. Don't you love when inspiration hits like that! I used boneless pork loin chops because that is what I had on hand. I am sure you could use a whole pork loin as well. Bone in chops may be even better, but I would probably not use rib chops for this recipe. I think the flavors are balanced by the thicker cut of the loin. To make this healthier I am sure olive oil can be used, though you won't get as nice of a sauce. Could be nice to add a minced shallot to the sauce ingredients at the end and/or maybe some pearl onions with the chops while cooking. The directions look long but it really isn't a difficult or time consuming recipe.
