Broiled Pork Chops with Sun-Dried Tomato & Chipotle Pesto

  • 4 bone-in, center-cut pork chops each 1 inch thick (about 2-1/2 pounds total)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup Sun-Dried Tomato & Chipotle Pesto
Sun-Dried Tomato & Chipotle Pesto
  • 1 cup loosely packed roughly chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes; plus 2 tablespoons of the oil from the jar
  • 2 medium or 1 large canned chipotle chiles in adobo; plus 2 teaspoons of the adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Position an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler to high. Set the pork chops on a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Season both sides of the pork chops with the salt and a few grinds black pepper and then cover both sides of the pork with the pesto--it should completely cover the pork. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Broil until the pesto darkens and any exposed parts of the pork chops become brown, about 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until the pork becomes firm to the touch and registers 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, another 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the chops to serving plates. If any pesto remains on the pan, scrape it up and top the chops with it. Serve immediately.
