I made these last night for dinner and could not wait to share them with you today. I didn’t know exactly what I was going to make when I got into the kitchen, but I am very happy with what we ended up with. After all, how can you go wrong with tender pork chops braised with tomatoes, kale and briny capers? The answer: You can’t.
For a long time I would always shy away from using bone-in pork chops. I have no idea why. Maybe I thought it was easier to cook and eat without having to worry about the bone. However, for a dish like this, where the cooking time is a bit longer, these bone-in pork chops work very well. The reason is they don’t dry out the way a boneless pork chop would. Not to mention, cooking meat on the bone adds a bit more flavor too.
I served this on a bed of nutty quinoa which I happen to love. If you don’t have any this would also be delicious over rice.
