Zesty lemon and garlic pork chops with crisp, gently cooked asparagus. An easy weeknight dinner!



  •     2 pork chops
  •     1 lemon, sliced into wedges.
  •     2 cloves garlic
  •     1 small bunch thin asparagus spears (roughly 6oz)
  •     2 tbsp olive oil


  1. Heat water in a pan, a steamer or prepare an instant pot to steam the asparagus.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet or frying pan over medium high heat.
  3. Once hot, add the garlic and pork chops. Cook for 4-5 minutes on the first side.
  4. After the first side is cooked, add the asparagus to your steamer and steam for 5 minutes.
  5. Flip the pork chops and squeeze over half of the lemon. Season to taste. Cook for another 4-5 minutes until the pork chops are cooked.  Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the pork reaches 145F.
  6. Once the asparagus is cooked, add to the pan and toss for a minute or so.
  7. Serve the pork chops on top of the asparagus with a wedge of lemon.
