The Pork Chops You Just Sear, Simmer and Sauce
Braising is a fantastic cooking method, but the fry-then-slowly-stew technique isn't ideal on a busy weeknight. Quick braising, though, is a variation that works well in a skillet, especially with pork chops. A sizzling-hot pan browns the meat, helping to give it richness, then you finish the cooking by adding stock and letting it simmer with the lid on, so the moisture keeps the pork tender and juicy. You can make the dish with apples and onions, just onions, onions and peppers or mushrooms, depending on whether your tastes veer sweet or savory.
