The BEST Classic Pork Chop
This is a bone in center cut tenderloin pork chop recipe. These are thin chops cut about 1/2″ to 5/8″ inch thick, seasoned and pan fried with bacon grease, butter, fresh herbs and cloves of garlic. It’s a quick recipe, cooked with a room temperature chop in under 7 minutes. The flavor is incredible and it is, hands down, my favorite way to cook pork chops.
Bone-in Pork Chops
2 Pork chops, 5/8″ inch thick
Kosher Salt & Pepper
1 tbsp Bacon Grease
2 tbsp Butter
4 Cloves Garlic
1 Sprig Thyme
1 branch Rosemary
1 Sprig Oregano or Sage, optional
Hot Pan, Medium High Heat #5 Setting on my stove. Grease in, Garlic & Herbs in, chops in bones in the middle. Cook 3 minutes then flip. Add Butter, cook another 3 min. Spoon the butter over the chops then sear the fat sides. Add the chops back to the skillet, spoon the butter once more and remove the herbs.
I love these Pork Chops with No Bake Barbecue Baked Beans, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Dirty Rice and Garlic Parmesan Brussel Sprouts.
