All it takes is one thick slice of bacon and some savory herbs to give your pork chop all the flavor you could ask for. And the searing/baking method of cooking it locks in all the juices so you’re sure to have a tender, juicy piece of pork.
Begin with a very thick (1/2 lb) pork chop and salt one side. On the other side, dip the pork chop in Italian bread dipping seasoning. Wrap the pork chop in a strip of bacon, and pin on with toothpicks. Roll the bacon in crushed pepper, and pan-sear the bacon on each side.
Bake the pork chop for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Be sure to make sure the internal temperature of the meat reaches 140 degrees.
Serve over a smear of cream cheese with slices of fresh green onions. Asparagus and baked potatoes with dill are great traditional sides, but the red grape slices added a nice bit of sweetness to balance everything out!
