Bacon Seared Pork Chops with Bacon-Potato Hash
If you love bacon, you will love this recipe! I found this recipe at the state fair this summer and switched it up a bit. I was so excited about how it turned out; I took photos without an SD card in the camera….so there are no photos to post to show how incredible this looked.
8 slices regular cut bacon or 4 slices thick cut bacon
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
6-8 medium yellow potatoes; peeled and cut into 1” cubes
1 medium onion; chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ tsp. maple flavoring
- Cook bacon in large skillet over medium heat until crisp and browned, about 10-15 minutes. Drain on paper towels and reserve bacon fat (about 4 Tbsp.).
- Heat butter and 2 Tbsp. bacon fat in the skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, onion and garlic and cook until lightly browned. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, crumble bacon and stir half of bacon into hash and remove from pan to oven-proof dish to keep warm.
4 boneless pork loin chops; 1” thick)
½ tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
Remaining bacon fat
- Heat remaining bacon fat in large skillet over medium heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and add to skillet. Cover and cook about 15 minutes (internal thermometer to read 145°), turning occasionally until golden brown.
- When pork chops are just about done; drizzle both sides with maple syrup and sear to caramelize.
Serve pork chops and hash on warm plate. Sprinkle remaining crumbled bacon on top of chops and hash.
