Pork Chops with Ginger Caper Sauce

Total time: 30 minutes
   Fry the chops, then kept warm while the sauce is quickly made. Remember, slightly pink pork is okay, and keeps it tender and moist. You need Greek yogurt, crème fraiche or sour cream for this.  Regular yogurt will not give a nice, thick sauce.
