Greek Pork Chops are seared and then Seasoned with Greek Seasoning and served with a Red Greek Sauce and Feta Cheese crumbled over top. If you don’t have my version of Greek Seasoning, Cavenders Seasoning can be substituted.

This goes exceptionally well with Greek Salad, but you could pair it with French Fries or Greek Potatoes, Broiled Potatoes, Roasted Vegetables, or other Salads.

There are many variations to this dish, but this recipe serves to establish a foundation in which it is a Seasoned Pork Chop, served with Red Greek Sauce and Feta Cheese.

Other Variations may include marinating the Pork Chops, Including Orange Peel & Leek with the Seasoning, or serving on some Tzatziki Sauce. Grilling or Slow Cooking the Pork Chops.

Pork Chops

Use Pork Chops about 1 inch Thick. Trim the excess fat off and render it so that you can sear the Pork Chops.

Sear in rendered fat about 5 minutes per side, or long enough to create a nice sear. If they are on the thicker side or include the bone, you can finish them in the oven at 325 F until an internal temp of 145 F – 155 F or when the Juices run clear. Allow the Pork Chops to rest 5 minutes before servings.

This recipe uses the Stove, but other Cook methods include Grilling or Slow Cooking. If cooking thinner pork chops, you can just finish them in the pan. About 3 minutes per side. However, you choose to cook the Pork Chops, this dish really comes together well with Seasoned Meat, Red Sauce, and crumbled Feta Cheese. It’s an awesome combination.

Marinade

If you choose to marinate. Use Greek Salad Dressing to marinate the meat for a few hours. Optionally add in Mustard or Aioli or Toum for a Real Garlicky Kick.

You don’t need much, either. Maybe 1/4 C of the Dressing and the remaining can be used for a Salad.

Red Greek Sauce

The Pork Chops are drizzled with Red Greek Sauce before Feta Cheese is crumbled over top. Have the sauce ready to go. Any leftover sauce can be used with other grilled meats or wraps.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare the Red Greek Sauce and have this on standby.
  • Trim excess Fat from the Pork Chops. Chop into small pieces and place into a skillet over medium heat and render the fat. Mix once in a while. Once the Crackling is crisp and browned, discard, reserving the fat to sear the Pork Chops.
  • Sear the Pork Chops 5 minutes per side, or until nice browning. Season with Greek Seasoning, both sides and allow to rest 5 minutes.
    If cooking bone-in pork chops or the pork chops are a bit thicker, place into a preheated oven at 325 F and continue to cook until done. Internal temp of 145 F – 155 F or until juices run clear. Remove from the oven and let rest.
  • Plate and drizzle Red Greek Sauce on top of the meat and crumble Feta Cheese to Serve. Or Plate the Pork Chops on Tzatziki Sauce and Drizzle Red Greek Sauce on top. Optionally Garnish with Parsley and Chili Flakes or Aleppo.

Notes

Times may vary depending on Thickness and whether Boneless or Bone-In. Cook until an internal temp of between 145 F – 155 F, followed by a rest for best results.
