Pork Chop with Chive Crema

Jump to recipe

I absolutely love pork chops! Especially bone in pork chops! This recipe is simple and delicious! It takes maybe 25 minutes to make and it’s so easy to have these ingredients on hand! My husband and I actually made this recipe for the first time because we found out we had a group of people coming over last minute for dinner and we happened to have a huge pack of pork chops and a tub of sour cream in the refrigerator. Thus this recipe was born! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Equipment for this recipe:

  • Grill
  • Tongs
  • Small Bowl
  • Immersion Blender

Ingredients for this recipe:

  • Bone-In Pork Chop
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Season Salt (like Lowrey’s)
  • Sour Cream
  • Chives
  • Garlic Bulb

How do you make this recipe:

First, preheat your grill to 400º. Pat both sides of the pork chops dry. Season both sides with salt, pepper, and season salt. I use Lowery’s season salt, but any will do. Dice the chives. Once the grill is preheated, put the pork chops and entire garlic bulb on the grill. Don’t move the garlic bulb during cooking, just allow it to roast. Allow the pork chops to sit for 2 minutes, then rotate 45 degrees and allow it to sit for 2 more minutes. Then flip the pork chops over and allow it to cook for 2 more minutes. Then, again, rotate your pork chops another 45 degrees and allow to cook until the internal temperature reaches 145º. Then take your pork chops and garlic off the grill. Allow your pork chops to rest while you make the Crema. Peel and crush your roasted garlic cloves. In a small bowl, combine garlic, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, sour cream, and chives. Blend with an immersion blender for 30 seconds or until well blended. Top each pork chop with 1/4 cup of Crema. Serve while warm!

How to store and reheat the pork chops and crema for later:

Pork chops will save cooked in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I don’t recommend freezing them after you cook them, because they will dry out. The best way to reheat pork chops is in the oven or toaster oven on 350º for 10 minutes. This will prevent them from drying out too much.
