Pan-Grilled Pork Chops

What a delicious supper! These chops are so easy to make and sooo very tender. This couldn’t be simpler! The pork chops are perfect and moist!

The recipe is also very versatile. You can use different seasonings to suit your family’s taste. It’s the cooking method itself that yields a beautiful moist pork chop.

Try some mushrooms. I think they would be delicious with the sauce.

Be sure to follow the important steps of letting the chops rest with the salt and seasoning before cooking, then browning the each side slowly, followed by a covered “rest”.

Pan-Grilled Pork Chops

Serves 4


4 pork chops, 1/2 to 1 inch thick
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 -2 tablespoon oil


Sprinkle the salt, thyme and pepper on the pork chops. Let sit on counter top for 30 minutes.

Place oil in large cast iron skillet (or heavy stainless steel skillet) and heat until medium hot.

Place chops in the pan, placing them so they don’t touch each other. Cook each side slowly (lower heat if necessary) until nice and golden brown on each side. This will take about 4 minutes per side.

Cover the pan with a tight fitting lid.

Turn off the heat, and let the chops sit for about 8- 10 minutes, depending on thickness of chops.

After removing chops, you can de-glaze the pan with a little water, wine or broth and a touch of butter and serve as a sauce.
