These pork chops are flavorful and juicy. They are served with a Yogurt Feta sauce, which gave them a really nice tang.
Rather than using boneless pork chops, which were more expensive, I bought a pork loin and cut it into chops. It made enough food for 2 nights.
The original recipe recommended grilling the pork chops, but we were out of propane so I broiled mine instead. The baby artichokes were boiled, tossed in garlic, salt and olive oil and broiled.

Looks delicious! I like the cutting of the loin to make the chops tip. I buy the chops in very large packages when on sale and freeze them in smaller bags.

Thanks. I've done that before too. It just seems like pork loins are on sale more often than pork chops.
