Butter pork is a non-halal dish that has been enjoyed for generations. Featuring succulent pieces of pork stir-fried in butter and herbs, it is a hearty comfort food with a unique flavor. Made by slowly simmering pork chops in butter, garlic, cajun/chili powder, rosemary, and thyme until the meat is tender and juicy. The star of this recipe is the pork - choose a cut without fat or just a little bit of fat as it will melt while cooking and add flavor to the dish.
