Pork Chops and Hot Cherry Peppers

Pork Chops and Hot Cherry Peppers is a dish I remember eating often as a kid growing up. A simple seasoning on the pork chops and then cooking them in some of that yummy pepper juice and a splash of vinegar if you want a little extra tang. I personally don’t think that the peppers are anything too crazy in the heat department, but you can absolutely sub some sweet cherry peppers instead. It will taste a little different but It will still be good. Pork and Hot Cherry Peppers is a very simple, no fuss, rustic dish. From start to finish this meal should take you only about 15 minutes!
