  • Heat a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in olive oil. (If the skillet isn't large enough to hold four pork chops without crowding, cook in two batches). Cook chops in hot oil for 3 minutes, until undersides are crisp and browned. Turn chops; cook 3 minutes.

Instructions Checklist
  • Transfer to an oven-safe platter. Sprinkle chops with bread crumb mixture. Bake chops for 8 to 9 minutes, until crumbs begin to brown. Sprinkle with remaining marjoram. Serve chops with Sweet Beet Chutney.

Sauteed Beet Greens:

If your beets have nice greens, save them to serve with the chops. Wash the reserved greens well. Coarsely chop the greens; set aside. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add greens; cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

If honey is thick, heat in microwave for 5 to 10 seconds.
