Red Wine Pork Chops

2 pork chops (bone-in)
2 shallots (sliced)
Olive oil
1 tbsp. rosemary
Black Pepper (to taste)
1/4 cup red wine
1 cup beef broth
1 tbsp. butter

In a pan add about 2 turns of the pan of olive oil, fry the pork chops over medium heat. Once fully cooked through, remove the pork chops and set aside making sure to keep warm. Add the shallots to the pan and olive oil (if the pan is drying up). Then add in the rosemary and pepper; when the shallots are soft, add the wine to the pan to deglaze. When this has reduced, add in the beef broth and stir up everything in the pan making sure to get the small bits off the bottom; simmer to reduce. Add the butter and stir. Place the pork chops back in the pan and immerse in the sauce. Serve.

*Johnna’s tip: The best way to plate this dish is by first placing the pork chop on the plate, taking about 2-3 tbsp. of the sauce and spreading it on top of the chop and then spooning out about 1-2 tbsp. of the shallots and spreading them over top the chop. Presentation is key, you eat with your eyes first. Serve with some freshly sauteed asparagus and whatever carb you want for the night, Enjoy!
