Stovetop Double Peppered Pork Chops

double pepper pork chop

This is delicious.

That’s it.  Just delicious. If you don’t like pork, you can substitute chicken tenders, or boneless chicken thighs.

The ingredients may sound strangely paired: green salsa and balsamic vinegar- but the outcome is so good.  A sweet and salty sauce to serve with noodles, rice or cauli-rice to low-carb it- but any way you serve it, make something to soak up all that flavor!

Stovetop Double Peppered Pork Chops

Prep Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 6-8 chops


  • 6-8 thin cut boneless pork chops (or you can hammer them down with a meat-mallet so they are 1/2 inch thick
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped small
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, insides discarded, and minced fine
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup salsa verde (find it where you find regular taco sauce)
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • chopped fresh cilantro (optional as a garnish)


Dry the chops on both sides with a paper towel. Sprinkle both sides with lemon pepper seasoning. Set aside.

Heat a large skillet to medium heat. Add the oil and cook the pork until browned on both sides, but not cooked through- about 2 minutes a side.

Add the onion, jalapeno to the pan and saute for one minute more.

Add the broth, salsa, and vinegar. Cover and reduce heat to simmer the sauce. Cook for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through.

Serve chops with their sauce and garnish with the cilantro (or parsley if you don't like cilantro).


This is one, the entire family will love! Lots of flavor, sauce, and easy to pair with some rice, and an quick vegetable to have dinner ready really quickly.
