Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork chops, 1” thick, room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  3. Toss the fennel with 3 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet lined with foil. Roast for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  4. Meanwhile prep pork chops. Rub the pork chops with salt, pepper and ground fennel. Drizzle olive oil on each pork chop.
