- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add onion and mushrooms and saute for 4-5 minutes, until tender. Add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.
Move the veggies to the side of the pan.
Season pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper. Add pork chops to the center of the skillet and cook for 4 minutes, until well browned. Turn over and cook an additional 2 minutes.
Zest the lemon and top each pork chop with lemon zest and a 1/2 tablespoon pat of butter.
