Instructions
 

Preheat Oven to 425°F / 220°C

    Brine the Chops:

    • Mix all ingredients in a lasagna pan big enough to accommodate the chops next to each other’s 3 to 4 hours no more than 6 hours. 

    Stuff the Chops:

    • Wrap the cheese julienne with two slices prosciutto.  Using a boning knife cut a “pocket” into each chop to be able to stuff the cheese and the prosciutto. Season them with black pepper, no salt needed!
    • In an oven proof sauté pan. Heat clarified butter and when hot (350°F / 175°C) add the chops and sauté them until golden brown on one side.  Flip them on other side and place pan in oven.  Cook until internal temperature is 145°F/62°C.  Take them out and let them rest at least 10 minutes before serving.

    Make the Sauce:

    • In a reduction pan, eat some butter, when hot, add the shallots and sauté for a couple minutes, add the rosemary, add mushrooms and salt.  Cook until the mushrooms have released all their water.  Add the garlic and when fragrant, add the wine and let it reduce by 1/2.  Add the stock and when hot thicken the sauce as needed.  Add the cream as much as you wish.  Turn heat off and add the butter at the least minute.

    For the Broccolini:

    • Poach the broccoli in boiling water until cooked to your liking.  Remove from hot water and immediately plunge them in ice water and reserve until ready to serve.
    • In a wok or a sauté pan, heat a good olive oil.  When hot add the onion and sauté for a couple minutes.
