Fennel Pork Chops

Fennel Pork Chops

Thanks again to our friend Stefano who used to have a great cooking show, I was encouraged to buy his cookbook “In the Kitchen With Stefano (available at Chapters and Indigo). Looking for something different to do with pork chops, I found this. We served them with grilled asparagus.

4 thick cut bone-in pork chops

Salt and pepper.

2 tbsp. fennel seeds crushed

2 garlic cloves chopped

¼ cup olive oil


Preheat grill to medium high OR use a frying pan on medium.

Season chops with salt and pepper and evenly coat with the fennel seeds and garlic. Drizzle with olive oil.

Place chops on grill for 4 to 5 minutes or the same in your frying pan. Turn and grill/fry for 4 to 5 minutes longer, depending on whether or not you like your chops pink in the middle as we do.
