Chuletas Guisadas Recipe (Spanish Pork Chops)

 

Spanish Stewed Pork Chop or Chuletas Guisadas in dish

You need look no further than these Chuletas Guisadas, which are Spanish Pork Chops stewed with peppers and onions, if you want tender, juicy pork chops. Serve with rice to help the tomato Sofrito sauce absorb every last bit of the dish!

I adore how adaptable these Chuletas Guisadas are prepared in the Spanish style, and how little flavoring is required!

The flavorful, tender Chuletas Guisadas are cooked in a delicious tomato-based sofrito sauce and then covered with onions, peppers, and cilantro. It makes the perfect sauce to go with a bowl of hot rice. You can also serve these with mashed potatoes and use the tasty tomato sauce as gravy for the potatoes. Absolutely delish!

Budget Friendly

You will quickly realize that you need to add these Spanish pork chops to your recipe index if you haven’t tried them or prepared them before. The Chuletas Guisadas are first flash fried in a small amount of oil, and then they are briefly cooked in a tomato sauce called Sofrito. These pork chops pair well with many common rice dishes thanks to the sauce.

The beauty of this dish is that you can make it with whatever cut of Pork Chops you like whether it be Bone-In, Center Cut, Boneless or more. The trick (as it always it with all of my recipes) is to use fresh ingredients which means dicing up onions and peppers and squeezing fresh limes!

The best part about this Chuletas Guisadas recipe is that you can use any type of pork chop you choose, including center cut, bone-in, or boneless. The key is to use fresh ingredients, which means slicing fresh limes and onions, as well as peppers, as I usually do with all of my recipes.

I’m not lying when I say that it changes everything. Although using fresh products in your cooking can occasionally be pricey, your taste buds will always appreciate it. Never be afraid to purchase your onions, peppers, and garlic from large box wholesale retailers like Walmart or Costco.

Using the highest-quality ingredients is usually advised because the integrity of the ingredients is so important in Hispanic cooking. Remember that freezing your homemade sofrito will extend the shelf life of your fresh ingredients. It also guarantees that your cuisine will always be excellent.

The Secret To Perfect Chuletas Guisadas

Choose bone-in pork chops that are 1.5 inches thick for the majority of pork chop dishes. Why choose bone in? Actually, the bone lengthens the cooking time. We’re only conversing for a little while. But even a few seconds can make the difference between dry, tight-textured chops and moist, succulent chops with flavorful sear marks.

Storing Any Extra Pork Chops

If you have any Chuletas Guisadas leftovers, just put them in a plastic container and put them in the fridge. Pork chops can last up to four days.

Can You Freeze Chuletas Guisadas?

If you store these pork chops right, they will last up to 3 months.

Just put some cooked Spanish pork chops in a plastic bag or container without any peppers or onions.

When you’re ready to eat, just let it thaw in the fridge and heat it up in a pan with a half cup of water. Add fresh peppers and onions on top and cook them until they are done the way you like.

Can I Freeze Raw Pork Chops With All The Seasonings?

Sure! All the ingredients, including the pork chops and water, can be put into a freezer bag.

When you’re ready to cook, put the frozen bag in the fridge overnight or put it in a bowl of water on the counter for a few minutes.

Then, pour everything into a skillet over medium heat, cover, and cook for 40 minutes to an hour.
