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.

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.

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.

I simply want to say I am just newbie to blogs and truly liked this website. More than likely I’m planning to bookmark your site . You actually come with really good writings. Kudos for revealing your webpage.

This is a correct weblog for everyone who would like to find out about this topic. You realize a great deal of its nearly hard to argue to you (not that I personally would want…HaHa). You actually put a different spin on the topic thats been written about for a long time. Great stuff, just fantastic!

The very next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t fail me just as much as this one. After all, I know it was my choice to read, however I truly thought you’d have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy seeking attention.

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more about this subject, it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t speak about such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!

I have learned some essential things through your website post. One other thing I would like to express is that there are many games on the market designed specifically for preschool age children. They involve pattern recognition, colors, family pets, and forms. These often focus on familiarization as opposed to memorization. This will keep little ones engaged without having the experience like they are studying. Thanks
