Here is the recipe for the Mediterranean chops. They are delicious!

4 boneless pork chops (6oz. each)
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 olive oil
1 1/2 cups onions, sliced
1 cup golden raisins
2 T. garlic, chopped
1/2 cup dry marsala
1 1/2 cups Roma tomatoes, seeded, chopped
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 T. sugar
2 t. dried oregano
1/2 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives
2 T. capers, drained, crushed
2 T. chopped fresh parsley
1 T. lemon zest

Season chops with salt and pepper; dust with flour.

Heat oil in a saute pan over med.-high. Add the chops and saute until browned on both sides, about 5 miutes; remove from pan.

Add onions and saute 3 minutes; stir in raisins and garlic, and saute another minute.

Deglaze with the marsala, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.

Stir in tomatoes, broth, vinegar, sugar, and oregano; bring to a boil. Return chops to the pan, cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the olives and capers; simmer until heated through.

To serve, arrange chops over Parmesan Orzo, then garnish with parsley and lemon zest.


1 cup dry orzo
1 T. olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan or Asiago, grated
Salt and pepper to taste

Prepare orzo according to package directions; drain and transfer to a bowl.

Stir in olive oil, cheese, salt, and pepper.
