Ever get tired of having the same types of meat cooked the same ways over and over again? I believe everyone does. It’s important to allow yourself to have some fun and creativity in the kitchen. Explore new tastes and textures.

One day I wanted something other than fried pork chops so I started looking around the kitchen to see what all I had to play with and ended up creating this delicious recipe. It’s a real winner and when I make it for other people they think its something fancy from a professional cookbook.

 

Happy cooking!

Instructions

0/9 Instructions
  • As all great recipes start, you need to have all the tools handy. For this meal, it's important to have a frying pan, 2 spatulas, baking sheet, foil, and nonstick cooking spray or oil. Preheat oven to 375F.
  • One of my first steps, when I am about to start cooking a meal, is to tenderize my meat with sea salt. With pork, one of my favorites is Silician Sea Salt. Grind or shake the coarse sea salt on one side at a time and rub it into the meat with your hand. Let it sit while you prepare the side dish.
  • Wash and pat dry the asparagus. I always cut off about a quarter inch of the bottom stem which helps with freshness and in my opinion sanitation from being store bought. Lay out across the baking sheet covered with foil and sprayed with the nonstick cooking spray or oil.
  • Sprinkle on the feta cheese as much as you like across the asparagus. Wash and dry the komodo tomatoes. Slice in half and sprinkle across the top. I use about a handful or average 8-10 tomatoes.
  • Drizzle the cherry balsamic rosemary vinaigrette up and down over the top of the mixture. Make sure not to pour too much or it will make the asparagus soggy. You want to drizzle for flavor/seasoning.
  • Place in preheated oven at 375F for about 20 min uncovered.
  • In frypan, spray with nonstick cooking spray or oil. Add together the peaches, guava, and whiskey over medium heat and saute together for about 3-5 min until it starts to thicken and the guava should be melted. Add in pork chop and cook about 10-15 min flipping occasionally until it is slightly browned on both sides. I like to scoop up the glaze and keep moisturizing the meat with it. If it looks like the glaze is getting too thick or dry add an additional shot of whiskey.
  • Get everything off the stove and out of the oven for a well deserved delicious meal!
  • I like to pair pork with light, slightly sweet, and just a touch of bubble. Preferred today was La Perlina Moscato!

  1. As I read your steps 1-9 in cooking Best Pan Fried Pork Chops: [Whiskey Peach Chops with Secret Ingredient], my mouth is watering.

    If I would be one of your visitors to try that recipe I would have a two of it.

    Thank you for presenting another way of cooking, it’s a discovery we have to keep in mind in order to have another taste different from the usual.

  2. Haha I love that you have whiskey handy to add to your new recipe.  I am so tired of the same old way of cooking meat.  This recipe really is something new and exciting.  I love pork chops, so trying this new recipe makes me look forward to the next time I buy them.  Great job.  Really enjoyed your post.

  3. This looks so appealing and quick easy recipe. I Will be trying this soon. Love anything pork.  Do you know if i can substitute the whisky for something else. I have kids and would like to make this for the family, do you recommend this for a family with teenagers or is the alcohol going to be present. I like that you paired it with wine. 

    1. Honestly the Whiskey cooks out and is there more for the flavor and should be good with teenagers. I will ponder on what to possibly substitute it with and get back to you.

  4. Oh cool, a simple to follow cooking instructions for pork chop plus an interactive recipe sheet to adjust the number of servings. The secret ingredient has to be my favorite part, I have never used guava in a recipe before, that is exciting. How did you ever think of that?

    Good work.

    Cheers,

  5. Wow, I am feeling hungry already 🙂

    I love pork chops, peaches and asparagus. This dish is perfect for my family, and it is easy to cook. I’m not good at cooking, so I always look for simple recipes.

    By the way, are you using fresh peaches and guava? Can I use those in the can?

    Thank you and look forward to more recipes for delicious dishes.

    1. Glad to hear your hungry 😉 I do tend to use fresh peaches but you can easily get diced peaches in the to go cups or cans. For the guava I get the jam verses the whole fruit which I actually order on Amazon because my grocery store doesn’t carry it. Excited to hear how you all like it!

  6. I’ll need some courage to give it a trial on a romantic dinner… and I’ll get it.

    I love its presentation on the plate and you’ve make it seem so simple that I’ve stated to believe even I could cook it. I’m not an expert but I bet the strength of the flavors from the Whiskey-Pork combination will be very well counterbalance by the Feta cheese and the rest of the ingredients.

    I was about to go with the always save Chicken Breast and Caesar’s Salad but I’m glad I came around to discover you and this recipe! 

    Thanks!

    1. You got this Chef Juan! It’s really very simple and the best thing is that the side dish you can throw together like a salad and put in the oven. The biggest tip for the pork chops is to not let the sauce get to dry so add more whiskey and/or juice from the peaches. In fact, if you start to worry, scoop out the mixture once it gets thick prior to the pork chops finishing and put a little extra oil in the pan to finish browning the pork then add the mixture back in for a min or two on order to heat back up with it. Sound like a good plan for date night?
