Saucy Maryland Pork Chops

Healthy Balance

A few years ago my husband and I took a trip to Savannah.  You can’t go to Savannah without stopping in at Paula Dean’s restaurant, and of course I couldn’t leave without a Paula Dean cookbook.  I took home a cast iron cookbook and really enjoyed a sour cream pork chop recipe.  I tweaked it a little to lighten it up and gave it a little Maryland twist.

Saucy Maryland Pork Chop ingredients Heat oil in skillet on medium high.  I’m using my cast iron skillet, but any medium or large skillet will do.  This isn’t going in the oven, so it doesn’t need to be oven safe.
