We had in mind Italian porchetta—spit-roasted pork seasoned with herbs, fennel and garlic—when seasoning these pork chops, but we narrowed the ingredients to those best suited for searing on the stovetop. We finish the chops with a simple lemon-accented, butter-enriched pan sauce and serve them with a fresh fennel and herb salad that balances the richness of the meat. When shopping, try to choose chops that are close in size so they cook at the same rate.




Don’t discard the fennel fronds if your bulb has them attached. Chop about ¼ cup and add them to the bowl with the fennel.
