Butterflied Pork Chops - Episode 70


Butterflied Pork Chops are tasty and fun to make. If cut correctly, the shape of your pork chops will resemble a butterfly. Soaking the pork chops in buttermilk for at least four hours before cooking adds a nice flavor, but due to the higher levels of lactic acid, it also results in super tender pork chops. Additionally, uncooked buttermilk is a probiotic food and will deliver beneficial microbes to your digestive tract. So don't be scared to drink it or add it to other "uncooked" recipes. The roux gravy uses a few spoons of the same oil I that the pork chops were cooked in. It is a very simple gravy and one that has very little natural flavor, so be sure to add some herbs or spices to it. Or, like in my recipe, add some mushrooms. Overall, this is a fun and stylish take on the classic pork chop that is easy enough for everyone to try.
