I was about 12 years old when I tried this. I'm now 54 and still remember the flavor. It was that good, and amazingly simple. My parents weren't home and I was experimenting.
Heat a cast iron fry pan until good and hot. Put a bit of cooking oil onto a piece of paper towel that's been folded in half, and in half again. Rub the oil onto the pan surface. Lightly season the chops with salt, after removing the excess fat. Place in the hot pan. Sear until lightly browned, turn over and add three tbs. sherry wine to the pan. Cover and simmer for four minutes more. Remove and serve with steamed asparagus or other green veggie, a bit of unsweetened applesauce, and maybe some cottage cheese. Oh! Swap out that asparagus for fresly steamed artichoke heart. Yum. Low fat and juicy, with no need for a starchy sauce.
