Rosemary Pork Chops

Yummm. I made Rosemary Pork Chop Skillet tonight. It was so yummy and great comfort food, and it smelled PHENOMENAL while I was cooking it. I served it with some whole grain rotini, but I think it would be sooo good with some stuffing. The best part of it was that it was only 220 calories! So. once again here is the recipe:

Rosemary Pork Chop Skillet


  • 1 pound boneless pork sirloin chops, cut 1/2 inch thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups peeled and cubed (1 inch) winter squash, such as butternut, banana, spaghetti, and/or acorn squash
  • 1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh sage


1. Trim fat from pork. Sprinkle chops with the salt and pepper. In a 12-inch skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown chops about 4 minutes, turning once. Combine squash, onion, and rosemary; spoon squash mixture over chops. Pour broth and orange juice over squash mixture and chops. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

2. Add zucchini and sage. Cook, covered, about 5 minutes more or until chops are done (160 degrees F). Using a slotted spoon, transfer chops and vegetables to a serving platter. Cover; keep warm.

3. Bring reserved juices in skillet to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Spoon over chops and vegetables.

4. Makes 4 servings
