1 tablespoon olive oil, more if needed
4 pork chops, about 3/4-inch thick (about 2 1/2 pounds in all)
salt
fresh ground black pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 fennel bulb, cut into thin slices
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup Marsala wine
2/3 cup canned low sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped




In a large frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Season the pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Put the chops in the pan. Cook, turning once, until browned and done to medium, about 5 minutes per side. Remove and put in a warm place.

If necessary, add oil to the pan to make about 2 tablespoons fat. Add the onion, fennel, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 10 minutes. Uncover and add the garlic. Cook, stirring, 1 minute longer. Add the marsala. Bring to a boil, scraping the bottom of the pan to dislodge any brown bits. Boil until reduced to approximately 1/4 cup, 1 to 2 minutes.

Stir in the broth, tomato paste, 2 tablespoons of the parsley, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and any accumulated juices from the meat. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, until the sauce thickens and the fennel is tender, about 5 minutes. Add the remaining tablespoon parsley, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and the pork chops. Cook until just heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.


Wine Recommendation: A well-made Nebbiolo delle Langhe has earthy and herbal flavors to blend nicely with fennel and just the right amount of tannin and dried-cherry fruitiness for the marsala and pork.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
