Pork Chops

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the pork chops in the oil and 1 tbsp of butter for 3 minutes per side. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Clean the skillet.
  2. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, soften the onion in the remaining butter until translucent. Sprinkle with the flour and cook for 1 minute, while stirring. Add the whiskey. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Let reduce by a little more than half, about 5 minutes

Buttered Broccoli Stalks

  1. In the same skillet you cooked the pork chops, warm up the blanched broccoli stalks in the butter.
  2. Divide the chops among 4 plates. Top with the sauce and serve with the broccoli stalks and rice, if desired.


Sortilège is a liqueur made with Canadian whiskey and maple syrup. It works well in deglazing meat and adding a little sweetness to a recipe. Served as a digestive, Sortilège also goes very well with praline-based desserts. You can replace it with a mixture of equal quantities of maple syrup and whiskey. To make this recipe without alcohol, use 1/4 cup (60 ml) water or chicken broth and 1 tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup instead of the Sortilège.
