These Mexican salsa verde pork chops go great alongside a bed or jasmine rice!
These Salsa Verde Pork Chops remind me of Mexico and if you know me you know that I love mexican cuisine. The chops are seared with butter at first then are covered in a delicious tomatillo salsa verde sauce.
What are Tomatillos you ask? Well there the Mexican tomato basically and now a days this tomato can be found in a jar called “Salsa Verde” at pretty much any supermarket in North America. I like to use this salsa in many different types of recipes, it goes especially well with pork and chicken dishes.
CAN YOU USE ANY KIND OF PORKCHOP?
Absolutely! Any kind of porkchop will work for this recipe. Such as bone in pork chops, pork loin or ribs.
These chops are super easy to make and are really really delicious! Go ahead and serve these pork chops over a bed of rice.
The trick to cooking the best pork chops is to use ample butter, because you are going to be basting the pork in the butter while it cooks. Giving it it’s depth of flavor and also helps to keep it moist and juicy.
Barriga llena, corazón contento = Full stomach, happy heart.
The second trick is to season the pork chops generously on both sides prior to cooking with salt and pepper. If you follow those two tips alone you are sure to prepare the best pork chops ever. Also feel free to use bone in pork chops, pork loin or ribs.
