Carrabba's Italian Grill was founded by Johnny Carrabba and Damian Mandola in Houston, Texas in 1986. The restaurant features hand-prepared family recipes made from the finest ingredients and prepared to order in an exhibition kitchen. The success of Carrabba's led to the popular PBS cooking show Cucina!, starring Carrabba and Mandola, as well as a series of companion cookbooks. There are currently 240 Carrabba's Italian Grill locations around the country.

Offering Italian-inspired cuisine passed down from our founders’ family recipes, Carrabba’s uses only the best ingredients to prepare fresh and handmade dishes cooked to order in a lively exhibition kitchen. Featuring a wood-burning grill inspired by the many tastes of Italy, customers can enjoy signature dishes, including Chicken Bryan, Spiedino di Mare and a fresh twist on an Italian Classic, Wood-grilled Chicken Marsala. Carrabba’s was voted #1 Italian in the 2014 Consumer Picks Survey by Nation’s Restaurant News.

Pork Chops With Caper Sauce


Pork Chops With Caper Sauce

Carrabba's Restaurant Recipe

Serves 4

4 lean center-cut pork chops, 1 1/4 inches thick
kosher salt an freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onions
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1 cup chicken broth
4 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon butter
4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

To Prepare:  Sprinkle the chops with salt and pepper. In a skillet large enough to hold the chops in one layer, heat the olive oil over medium-high flame. Add the chops and cook till lightly browned, about 7 minutes, then turn and cook the other side. Remove chops, set aside and keep warm. Pour off the excess fat from the skillet.

Add the onions and garlic to the skillet and cook until wilted. Add the vinegar and reduce by half. Add the chicken broth, capers, mustard, tomato paste, and rosemary. Cook and reduce by half.
Remove the sauce from the heat and add any juices that may have accumulated around the pork chops. Swirl the butter with the sauce and adjust salt and pepper according to taste.

To Serve: Spoon the sauce over the meat and sprinkle with parsley.
