Cast Iron Fried Pork Chops

If you ask me the best way to cook a pork chop is to sear it fast in a hot cast iron skillet just to put a great crust on it them finish it in the oven, Doing it this way will ensure tender and juicy Pork Chops for you and your family can enjoy. Come on and try my method of cooking a great tender and juicy Pork Chop.....You will thank my later.

Cast Iron Fried Pork Chop

4 bone-in pork chops (that bone gives you extra flavor)

2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

A pinch of himalayan pink salt

A pinch of coarsed black pepper (coarse pepper adds a bolder flavor)

4 tabs of butter


Preheat oven onto 350 degrees then wash off your chops then pat them dry using a paper towel add them to a plate. Using some of the olive oil pour a few tablespoons onto the Pork Chops add the pink salt and coarse pepper and rub it into the meat really well then let the meat sit for a few minutes to settle into the Pork Chops

Time To Cook The Pork Chops

Using a cast iron skillet heat the pan up using a medium - high heat setting, let the pan get hot until you see just a little bit of smoke coming from the cast iron pan then slowly place the Pork Chops into the cast iron pan and let them sear, while they are starting to sear add 1 pat of butter in to the cast iron pan so the butter can cook with the Pork Chops

After about 3 minutes flip over the pork chops and add another pat of butter then place the cast iron into the 350 degree oven then add the other 2 pats of butter and let the Pork Chops continue to cook for additional 5 to 6 minutes to ensure doneness.

When your Pork Chop is done pull out the oven then let your Pork Chop rest a few minutes before serving.

When cooking Pork Chops make sure you cook your Pork Chops safely the temperature for a cooked Pork Chop is medium rare is 145 - 150 degrees, medium is 150 - 155 degrees and well is 160 - 165 degrees. These internal temperatures are greatly recommended eating a good healthy Pork Chop.
