This recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops was completely inspired by a trip I’d taken to our local warehouse superstore (aka Costco).

During that trip on a whim, I picked up one of those mega-sized bags of whole, peeled garlic cloves and tossed it into my cart. While I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with so many peeled garlic cloves (there must have been at least 500 or more cloves of garlic in that bag), my mind was excitedly thinking of all the delicious possibilities!

It was on our way home from that shopping trip to Costco that I Googled the recipe: Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic, and since I wasn’t the one driving, it was perfectly safe for me to do so. Safety first, kids!

I’m sure most of you have already heard of the dish (chicken with 40 cloves of garlic), if not already tasted it. Since I’d only heard of it but never made it, I decided to put my own spin to it and swap out the chicken for pork chops (since I also purchased chops on that same shopping trip). The result was this recipe for  Garlic Lovers Pork Chops, and they’re far better than I could have ever anticipated.

Do you know who else loves pork chops? Check out the video I made below, and you’ll find out! LOL

FEAR NOT: If you’re not a fan of garlic because you think it has a bitter and overpowering flavor and smell, I hope you won’t be scared off from making this dish of Garlic Lovers Pork Chops.

Even though there is a ton of garlic in this recipe, the fact that it is sauteed until golden and then simmers in the wine sauce for 20 minutes transforms the flavor and texture of the garlic to a buttery creaminess, with a mildness of flavor that will forever change your thoughts on garlic.

Since the recipe for Garlic Lovers Pork Chops calls for wine and vermouth, I thought I’d showcase my “Cooking With Wine” hand painted apron with this dish.

I used to think Julia Child originally spoke these words of wisdom, but after Googling the famous saying I believe it was actually W.C. Fields. Either way it’s a fun quote, and certainly makes cooking more fun!

    I love garlic! I think this recipe has just the right amount of garlic! 🙂

  9. I love garlic too, it gives so much extra flavor!

  10. Love how many cloves are in this recipe. There has to be the best flavor!

    • Truth be told, Aimee, I didn’t actually count. But, if I had to guess, I’d say like 50.
      Since the garlic gets mild and sweet with cooking, it DOES have the best flavor. I hope you’ll try it!

  11. Thanks for sharing on Meal Plan Monday. I’ve shared this delicious recipe on A Southern Soul as well.
    Have a great week, Rene!

  12. This dish looks very tasty, I also often eat roast garlic, and this combination between garlic cloves and cream and butter make this food the best flavor. I can not wait to try it! And I think I will prefer mince my garlic rather than garlic clovers because I get used to it 🙂

    • I’m all about doing it your own way, Do. I’m happy that you’re going to try my recipe. I know you’ll love it no matter how you decide to use the garlic. Thanks for your comment, and thanks for visiting!
