Pan-Grilled Pork Chops

Pan-Grilled Pork Chops – Couldn’t Be Simpler

These Pan-Grilled Pork Chops are so easy to make and sooo very tender. What a delicious supper! 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 each side slowly, followed by a covered “rest”.
