Very quick and simple to make, and near impossible to mess up, this dish will woo guests with its rich flavor and savory aroma.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wrap each pork chop in a strip of prosciutto and press flat until the prosciutto sticks. Generously grind pepper on both sides of the prosciutto wrapped pork chop.
  2. Heat two tablespoons of butter in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat; add the pork chops. Cook for 2 minutes (or more, depending upon thickness) on each side and remove to a plate. The prosciutto should be golden brown and slightly crispy.
  3. Pour the vermouth into the skillet used to cook the pork chops, scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan and let the vermouth reduce to about 1/2 the original amount. Add the chicken stock, sage, garlic, and juice from the lemon, along with a few grinds of pepper. Let the sauce reduce to half then add the last tablespoon of butter , add the pork chops till coated in sauce.
