The Quick Facts on Frenched Pork Chops

  • 100% Canadian pork
  • Average 10-12 oz each

Our French cut pork chops are hand-cut from the rib section of pork loins to order. Frenching is a technique where all meat is removed from the bone. Our pork chops are frenched on the bone for better presentation. These chops pack a ton of flavour even though they're one of our leanest pork cuts! Give these beautiful cuts your favourite dry rub or marinade. They are shipped fresh and never frozen. 

Goes Great With...

Perfect for a gourmet meal, these pork chops can be elevated to new heights when paired with the right selection of meats. From the smoky richness of bacon to the refined taste of veal cutlets, each combination promises to enhance the dining experience, offering a symphony of flavours that complement the star of the plate: the Frenched pork chop.

  • Bacon: Wrapping pork chops in bacon or serving them alongside adds a smoky, salty flavour that enhances the natural taste of the pork.
  • Veal Cutlets: Veal, with its subtle and refined flavour, pairs nicely with pork chops. The similar textures of veal and pork allow for a harmonious combination, especially when both types of meat are prepared with complementary seasonings.
  • Duck Breast: Duck breast, known for its rich and slightly gamey flavour, can be a unique pairing for pork chops. The contrast between the duck's bold taste and the pork's milder flavour can create an interesting and sophisticated dish.

Our Preferred Preparation for Frenched Pork Chops 

For Frenched pork chops, our go-to cooking methods involve either frying them in a skillet or roasting them in the oven, each technique bringing out the best in their flavour and texture. Here are two of our favourite recipes – one for frying and one for roasting – that perfectly showcase the succulence and richness of these chops.

  1. Skillet-Fried Frenched Pork Chops with Herb Marinade

Ingredients:

  • 4 Frenched pork chops
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tsp thyme, chopped
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp butter

Instructions:

  • Combine olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Coat the pork chops with this marinade and let them sit for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the marinated pork chops and sear them for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until they develop a golden-brown crust.
  • Lower the heat, add butter to the skillet, and baste the chops for another minute.
  • Remove from heat and let the cooked chops rest for a few minutes before serving. This method ensures a flavourful and juicy chop with a perfectly seared exterior.
  1. Oven-Roasted Frenched Pork Chops with a Mustard Glaze

Ingredients:

  • 4 Frenched pork chops
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Mix Dijon mustard, honey, apple cider vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to create the glaze for a delicious seasoning.
  • Brush the pork chops with olive oil and then generously apply the mustard glaze on both sides.
  • Place the chops in a roasting pan and roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145°F (63°C).
  • Let the chops rest for a few minutes after taking them out of the oven. This process will yield a tender, moist chop with a delightful balance of sweet and tangy flavours from the glaze.
