Milk Street Recipe

Pork Chops in Chipotle Sauce (Chuletas de Puerco Enchipotladas)

30 minutes

Pan-fried pork chops get a savory-spicy partner in a chipotle-tomato sauce drawn from a Mexican culinary tradition. Four chipotle chilies go into the sauce for substantial, but not incendiary, heat. If you like, add more adobo sauce after simmering to increase the spiciness. To keep things tender and succulent, we browned only one side of ½-inch-thick bone-in pork chops. Simmering the chops in the sauce finished them without overcooking the meat. Slightly thicker chops also work: If using ¾- to 1-inch chops, brown on both sides (about 6 minutes total) before removing them from the pan. Partially cover the skillet during simmering and increase the simmering time to 7 to 9 minutes. Serve with warmed tortillas or roasted potatoes or sweet potatoes.
