Ingredients

  • 4 6 oz. boneless pork chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup Kalamata olives pitted and halved
  • 1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 3 oz. Feta cheese crumbled
  • 1/2 medium red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped

Instructions

  1. Remove pork chops from refrigerator and pat dry with a paper towel. Lightly season both sides of each chop with the garlic powder, plus salt and black pepper, as desired. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together two tablespoons olive oil with the fresh lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and thyme in a large bowl. Add the Kalamata olives, tomatoes, and Feta cheese and toss to combine. Set aside.
  3. Add one tablespoon olive oil to a large nonstick skillet set over medium heat. Add the red onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and starts to develop some color, approximately 4-5 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining olive oil and the seasoned pork chops to the skillet. Cooking until the chops are golden brown on each side, approximately 3-4 minutes per side.Note: The safe cooking temperature for pork is 145°F. An instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the chops should read approximately 135°F at this point.
  5. Pour the seasoned tomato and Feta mixture into the skillet and nestle it in amongst the chops. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 2 minutes, or until the tomatoes and olives are warmed through and the Feta starts to melt.
  6. Remove skillet from heat and rest for 5 minutes. Remove cover and serve immediately garnished with fresh parsley, if desired, and your choice of sides. Enjoy!
