Equipment

  • Large non-stick frying pan (skillet) with lid
  • Chef's Knife
  • An instant-read thermometer
  • Large mixing bowl

Ingredients
 
 

  • 4 6 ounces boneless pork chops
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1-2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp 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 tbsp fresh flat-leaf parsley chopped

Instructions
 

  • Remove the pork chops from the refrigerator and pat dry with a paper towel. Lightly season both sides of each chop with the garlic powder along with salt and black pepper to taste and set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together two tablespoons of olive oil with the fresh lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and thyme. Add the Kalamata olives, tomatoes, and Feta cheese and toss to combine then set aside.
  • Add one tablespoon of olive oil to a large non-stick frying pan (skillet) set over medium heat. Add the red onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until the onion softens and starts to develop some colour, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the remaining olive oil and the seasoned pork chops to the frying pan (skillet). Cook until the chops are golden brown on each side, about 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Pour the seasoned tomato and Feta mixture into the frying pan (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.
  • Remove the frying pan (skillet) from the heat and rest for 5 minutes. Remove cover and serve immediately garnished with fresh parsley, if desired, and your choice of sides. Enjoy!

Notes

Tips:
For best results, allow the chops to come to room temperature prior to cooking and use an instant-read thermometer to determine when they are ready.
The safe cooking temperature for pork is 63C or145°F. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the chops should read approximately 57C or 135°F at this point.
You can replace the chops with loin steaks if you prefer.
