Directions:

  1. 1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops on both sides with paprika, salt and pepper, and sear in the hot pan, for 3-5 minutes on each side depending on the thickness, or until cooked to your liking. Once done, remove pork chops from the pan and set aside.
  2. 2. Melt butter in the remaining cooking juices in the same pan. Add garlic and onion and stir-fry until fragrant, about one minute. Add in the vegetable or chicken stock, and allow to reduce a little.

  5. 5. Transfer the pork chops back into the pan to reheat; sprinkle with the parsley, and spoon the sauce over each pork chops. Serve over steamed vegetables, zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice. Enjoy!
  6. Note: You can use dry white wine instead of vegetable stock if you prefer.
