Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Chops

January 9, 2012

This is a simple variation on pork chops but it bumps up the flavor and sophistication so much. At the deli you can just ask for exactly as many slices as you need of prosciutto.

Prosciutto-Wrapped Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork chops – 5-6 oz each
  • Course salt and ground pepper
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme leaves – chopped (I used dry with success as well)
  • 4 slices prosciutto
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Directions:

–    Season pork chops with salt and pepper.
–    Sprinkle with thyme leaves over each, pressing, to help it adhere to meat.
–    Wrap with 1 Prosciutto slice around middle of each chop.
–    Press ends to seal.
–    In a large nonstick skillet, heated over medium-high.
–    Cook chops until golden brown and cooked through 4-5 minutes per side.

This is great just to get a tiny bit fancier daily or make it for a special occasion. The Prosciutto adds a nice crispy texture to the meat.
