“Came across this one in my current quest to change up the menu a bit and have fallen for fennel. With a distinctive licorice flavor, fennel has many natural pairings including both pork and tomatoes. In this recipe, grilled or pan cooked chops are given a zippy finish with a Italian inspired sauce. For those of us who don't always have time to marinade and do a lot of prep work, this seems like lovely dish to serve to family or friends.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add the tablespoon of oil. Add onions and fennel and saute for 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add the minced garlic and cook an additional minute. Add tomatoes, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and salt and pepper and simmer for ten to fifteen minutes.
  3. Whilst the sauce is cooking, about five minutes into simmering time, take the garlic clove and rub both sides of the chops. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cook chops about 3-4 minutes on each side on grill, grill pan, or skillet. (I used a George Foreman and find 3 minutes per side perfect.) Allow meat to rest a minute before serving.
