  • Includes only few ingredients

First you need to get good quality pork chops. You can get boneless or bone in. I personally prefer with the bone, gives more flavor and the meat is juicy and tender. You can also use loin chops, their are leaner tan the center cut. Either one will do the magic. For this recipe I use A boneless one.

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

  • Sear the chops – it is very important to do that for texture, taste and appearance.
  • Get a very Hot Pan so you can achieve the perfect gold color
  • Leave the pork chops out of the fridge for 30 minutes prior to cooking and and seasoned with salt( a little bit heavier). This is call dry brining and helps the pork to not just get more tender but crispy as well. After that dry the meat with kitchen paper. Season again with a little bit salt and fresh cracked black pepper, onion and garlic powder
  • Use cast Iron skillet if possible- gives nice seared on the meat.
  • Season well with salt and pepper – that guarantees a wonderful flavor to the pork

What Temperature Is Pork Safe to Eat?

Many of you may have an aversion to undercooked pork. Health risks from pork have significantly declined as standards have increased in recent years. The standard for fully cooked and safe pork is now 145 F.

I highly suggest getting yourself an Instant Read Meat Thermometer ! You can use it with any type of meat, breads, oil, etc. It comes in handy almost every day for me. If you prefer cooking your pork more than 145F, that is totally okay. After all This is your kitchen, your dinner, your rules!
