Pork chops tend to be some of the more fatty cuts of pork and thus are the most flavorful, so it’s not surprising that they are also among the most popular. You can pan-sear, grill, braise or even fry pork chops, so there are many possibilities for pairing this delectable cut with a wide variety of wines. 

Fried Pork Chop Recipes

Fried Pork Chop Pairing Guide Let’s begin with fried pork chops. In this case, fried is meaning breaded and fried.

Onions are full of sugar but it takes extended cooking to really make tha... Read More about Braised Pork pairings »

Grilled Pork Chop Recipes

Grilled Pork Chop Pairing Guide Because of their rich ring of covering fat, pork chops are well suited to grilling. Simple preparations like a brush of rosemary, garlic and wine are some of the best ways to enhance the lightly smoky flavor of grilled pork without covering the subtle flavor of the meat. Counterintuitively perhaps, grilled pork chops are best paired with rich white wine, like something barrel aged and a little smoky. There are many white wines with a natural...
