• 8 oz “thick-cut” pork chop
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


Pre-heat oven to 400°

Pat the pork chops dry and season with salt and pepper.

Heat your skillet over medium-high heat for 2-3 min and add 2 T of oil.

Once the oil is hot (shimmering but not smoking), place the chops in the oil.

Add 2 Tablespoons of butter to the pan. Once the butter has melted, baste the chops while they sear for 3 min each side.

Chuck the chops in the oven (in the skillet, if oven safe) for 4-8 minutes depending on the thickness of your chop, and cook to internal temperature of ~145°. This will feel like a medium-well steak to the touch.

Remove the chops from the oven, place them on a plate, and let them rest for 3 min before slicing / serving.
