Pork Chops with Basil Butter

Pork with Basil Butter

This recipe is simple and yet so savory! The butter really adds so much to the dish. This is a great one for summer! Have some extra plates nearby since you will do the pork in your skillet and then the beans and then the tomatoes each separately in the same skillet.
