Greek Style Pork Chops

Cookbook Recipe #42

I really love these cookbooks. So many recipes. Out of this one I chose to share the Greek Style Pork Chops. I have made this recipe several times. We really enjoy all the flavors that go on top of the chops. With all the cooking that I do, one thing I noticed that I need to work on is the searing of meat. Whenever a breading is involved I feel like I do not get that crispiness on the outside. It always seems to come out almost a little soggy. The overall taste of everything is always good, but I know it would be even better with a nice sear. Something I need to practice. Anyway, the only thing I really change from the original recipe is that I do not include the kalamata olives on top. I am an olive lover, but I feel like they are too salty. Hope you like this one as much as we do.
