Pork Chops with Peppers and Onions
Pork chops with peppers and onions are the perfect combination of flavors and textures. The vegetables are quickly sauteed over high heat and the seasoned pork is seared and then finishes cooking in the oven. The result is crisp-tender vegetables and perfectly seasoned meat. This easy meal comes together so quickly and is delicious. It's easily multiplied so it's great for entertaining. Serve with a salad and crusty bread and you have the perfect meal.

Let's see what we need.
We're ready to cook.
Seed and quarter the peppers and halve and then slice the onion; set aside.
Saute the peppers and sliced onion in 3 tablespoons of oil over high heat; season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes until peppers just start to get tender. Toss in the fresh oregano and then transfer the mixture to a dish.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the seasoning mixture for the pork chops. Places the chops in a baggie and toss with all of the seasonings. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in the same pan. Add the meat and cook over medium heat until the meat is golden brown; flip and brown the other side. Place the pan in the oven and continue cooking until an instant thermometer reaches 145 degrees. Do not overcook.
It's ready! Now just combine the vegetables and the meat and you have the most delicious meal. It's so easy to prepare and full of flavor that I know you'll be making this again and again.
