Based on the number of pork chop recipes on this blog, you can tell my family enjoys some good pork chops. Here is the deal, we love them grilled, baked, slow cooked, smoked, breaded, bone-in, boneless, marinated or not. We love pork chops. When I am looking for a no-nonsense focus on the pork chop recipe, this pan-fried pork chops recipe is my go-to since there is no flour, no marinading, no waiting, just juicy, flavorful pork chops.
The heart of this recipe is obviously the pork chop. If you are going to pan fry pork chops, don’t skimp on skinny pork chops. Get your self some thicker pork chops. Have them be at least an inch thick. Don’t be afraid to ask the meat section manager for help. They love to help you find exactly what you need. I would also, go bone-in. I know boneless is easier, but the bone adds additional flavor. It is worth the work.
I seasoned the pork chops with two seasonings: Seasoned Salt and Steak and Chop Seasoning. The third and fourth important ingredients are the butter in a cast iron skillet. People, the cast iron skillet is an ingredient. My steaks on the stove are amazing because of the cast iron.
Pork can cook to a lower temp than most realize. I cook pork till it is in the 145-degree range. On a steak thermometer this the medium rare to medium range. I really encourage you to buy a good meat thermometer. Once they have reached the temp, pull them out of the pan and let your meat rest.
Now, if you aren’t drooling, I don’t know how to make you drool. I served up with a big pan of macaroni and cheese and everyone pigged out. Pun intended. These pan-fried pork chops were quick and delicious.
