Properly cooked pork chops are fabulous, so tender & juicy. This is one of those things to keep up your sleeve, especially after coming home from work and having to come up with something easy, peasey for dinner! Gelderman’s** is a great source for excellent pork products.
(4) 1 ¼” thick, bone in pork chops
Salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
Heat a cast iron frying pan or other oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Season the chops with salt & pepper; add 1 Tbsp. cooking oil or a combination of cooking oil & EVOO to the pan. When hot, but not smoking, add the pork chops & cook for 5 minutes; turn chops over & place the skillet in the oven & cook for 8 – 10 minutes for medium well or 12 minutes for well done. Your chops will be a lot juicer if cooked medium well. Remove the chops to a heated platter & let rest for 5 minutes before serving. If there are any juices that have accumulated, serve with the chops if you wish.
