Italian Style Pork Chop Recipe
This might just be the best pork chop recipe you’ll ever find.
We found a recipe for Pork Chops Italian Style on the Kraft website and added our own spin to it. This is the first recipe for our ‘Easy Recipes for Two‘ video series.
A really simple recipe that will not only cut down the time spent in the kitchen, but will also cut down the amount spent out of your weekly food budget. Mixing garden fresh zucchini, oregano, and Italian style diced tomatoes, we were able to transform ordinary pork chops into something much more savory.
Ingredients you need:
- 4 boneless center cut pork chops
- 2 freshly sliced zucchini
- 1 tsp. dried oregano leaves
- 1/4 cup Balsamic vinaigrette dressing
- 1 can (14.5 oz.) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 cup shredded low-moisture mozzarella cheese
Heat a large skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium high heat. Add chops and cook 2 minutes or until bottoms of chops are browned. Turn chops over and add the sliced zucchini.
Sprinkle with oregano; drizzle with dressing; add tomatoes, cover the pan and bring to a boil. Simmer on low heat for about 15 minutes or until chops are done, stirring occasionally.
Sprinkle with cheese and cover the pan. Serve as soon as the cheese is melted.

To compliment the meal we added some fried rice as a side. This would have worked well with plain white rice or bow-tie pasta as well.
The taste was light and tangy with just a hint of the oregano and the acidity of the tomatoes went well with the meat and cheese. Every once in awhile I would bite into some of the coarsely ground peppercorns, this was a flavor explosion in my mouth that made me only wanting more.
A bottle of Rex Goliath Pinot Grigio was our beverage of choice. The wine had a slightly fruity and crisp flavor that accentuated the tangy chops and pulled the whole meal together nicely.
