Peppercorn Pork Chops with Warm Pickled Pepper Relish



Ingredients :

  • 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon white peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon green peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon pink peppercorns
  • 2 (8 ounce) boneless center-cut pork chops
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • ⅓ cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • Quick Pickled Pepper Relish:
  • ¼ cup diced poblano pepper
  • 2 tablespoons diced orange bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 pinches cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup seasoned rice vinegar
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Place all peppercorns on a cutting board and use the flat bottom of a heavy pan to crush them as finely or coarsely as you like. Transfer crushed pepper into the pan.

  • Step 2

    Make 3 cuts through the fat on each pork chop and season generously with salt. Apply a generous coating of crushed peppercorns to both sides, pressing into the meat firmly as you do, until fully coated.

  • Step 3

    Transfer chops to a rack set over a pan and let sit out at room temperature for 1 hour, turning halfway through and reapplying crushed peppercorns as necessary. Or, place in the refrigerator for 4 to 12 hours.

  • Step 4

    Meanwhile, prepare the pepper relish while the chops are dry-brining: combine poblano pepper, orange and red bell peppers, garlic, salt, cayenne, and rice vinegar. Mix to combine and cover with plastic wrap. Leave on the counter for 1 hour.

  • Step 5

    Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat until very hot and starting to shimmer. Add pork chops and sear for 5 minutes per side. Use tongs to turn chops while you brown the edges for another 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium if the pan is too hot and begins to smoke. Chops should firm up and spring back to the touch. Do not overcook. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C).

  • Step 6

    Turn off the heat and transfer chops to a plate. Cover loosely with foil and let rest.

  • Step 7

    Add chicken broth to the hot pan. Turn heat to high and bring to a rolling boil. Add pickled pepper relish and stir with a spoon, scraping all the bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook until liquid in the pan reduces by about half, about 3 minutes.

  • Step 8

    Turn off the heat. Add cold butter and any accumulated juices from the plate of pork and stir until butter has melted.

  • Step 9

    Serve pork chops with plenty of hot pickled pepper relish over top.
