Preparation time: 5 minutes

Use the time it takes to cook the chops to prep your pears and chives and measure the vodka.  You’ll enjoy an elegant dinner for two in minutes.


  • 2 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 ripe Anjou pears, each cored and cut into 6 wedges
  • 1/4 cup lemon vodka
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • 2 lemon wedges (optional)


Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.  While the skillet heats, sprinkle the pork evenly with salt and pepper.  Coat the pan with cooking spray and add the port.  Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Remove the pork from the pan, set aside, and keep warm.  Add the pear wedges to the pan and cook for 3 minutes, turning frequently.  Return the pork to the pan.  Add the vodka and cook for 1 minute. 

Serve the pan juices over the pork and pear wedges.  Sprinkle evenly with chives.  Squeeze 1 lemon wedge over each serving, if desired.
