ITALIAN-STYLE BRAISED PORK CHOPS


Braised pork chop is a simple dish that can be served on a nice bed of fried polenta or on top of creamy risotto.

If you have the homemade wine please use it. If not, a great bottle of Barolo or Amarone will work perfectly.

Savor this one. You’ll be frequently including it in your family gatherings.
