"You can never have enough garlic. With enough garlic, you can eat The New York Times." -Morley Safer, Newsman

The refrigerator light goes on...

This is a lovely sauce and proves that simple ingredients prepared with care can make for the most subtle flavors. Garlic, olive oil, butter... that's all it takes. The slow simmering of the sauce gives it a rich, savory flavor enhanced by the richness of the butter. This goes well with pork but can also top a grilled flank steak or roasted chicken breasts.

Pork Chops with Garlic Sauce recipe from Dr. Gourmet

Place the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced garlic. Cook slowly for about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low to keep the garlic from turning brown.

Add the roasted garlic, white wine, chicken stock, salt and pepper. Adjust the heat to medium so that the sauce is at a simmer.

Place a large skillet in the oven and preheat to 425°F.

Simmer for about twenty minutes. Lightly mash the roasted garlic while the sauce is simmering. Cook until the sauce is reduced to about 1/3 cup. Add the butter and reduce the heat to low.

Lightly spray the skillet in the oven with oil. Add the pork chops and return the pan to the oven. Cook on the first side for about 7 - 8 minutes and turn. Cook for another 7 - 8 minutes.

Serve topped with the garlic sauce.
