Pesto Buttered Porkchops

Pesto Buttered Porkchops
I almost always start with a little backgrounder with all my posts, I cook and blog mostly because of my cravings. But this time around, the reason was because I owe somebody a huge favor. This person is quite special to get something back. Also, we both have the same restaurant in mind when we talk about this recipe. Brown Cup, is one of the few Italian restaurants serving pesto buttered porkchops. Brown Cup is located at Skyrise 1 Building, IT Park, Lahug Cebu City Philippines. 

IT PARK is not only a business district but is also known for places to eat and
hang out after a hard days work. I used to work for one of the companies in IT Park, pesto buttered porkchop was just one elevator ride for me; now, this would mean one taxi ride to this restaurant. I posted the recipe of basil pesto here, and I promised to post some of the uses aside from spreading it to bread. So here is one =). Enjoy!
