Fennel Pork Chops Recipe

The licorice flavor of fennel provides an interesting flavor to this dish.

Fennel Pork Chops Recipe



  1. Chop the garlic and basil.
  2. Trim the fennel bulb and slice into long strips.
  3. In a bowl mix together the wine, sliced fennel, marjoram, salt, and basil. Set aside.
  4. Heat 1 Tbs of olive oil in a large skillet.
  5. Cook 3 of the pork chops for 3 minutes on each side over medium-high heat. Remove and set aside. Repeat with the 1 Tbs of olive oil and the other 3 pork chops.
  6. Lower the heat and return all the pork chops to the skillet.
  7. Add the wine-fennel mixture to the skillet.
  8. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
  9. Remove the lid and turn the pork chops.
  10. Cook for another 3 minutes.

    Note: This also makes a good marinade for pork chops. Mix together the wine, fennel, and seasonings. Place it in a re-closable freezer bag, add the pork chops, and freeze. When you defrost the pork chops retain the wine-fennel marinade. Complete the dish in the same manner as described above.
