Preparation

  1. Heat a cast iron skillet. When hot, lightly brush pan with oil, then add chops.
  2. Cook chops until nice amber color develops, about 3 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer to a pre-heated sizzle plate. Tent with foil.
  4. Add more oil to skillet. Add the onions and caramelize for three or four minutes, then add garlic, and swirl in a few pats of butter.
  5. Add the quartered, cooked potatoes.
  6. Add the tomatoes and basil. Cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes, and tomatoes start releasing their juices, reducing the heat if necessary.
  7. Plate the chops on a large plate, nestle the tomatoes and potatoes in front and add some spring greens behind the chops, drizzle the greens with balsamic vinaigrette.
  8. Add the last pats of butter and swirl and scape the pan.
