I love a great pork chop.
As a chef, I’m always looking to elevate ordinary ingredients to extraordinary dishes. I came up with this recipe when I began dating my wife, Kristen. Whenever I make this dish, I’m reminded of our first few romantic dinners together, so I hope it inspires you to cook it for your sweetie!
