2Using a cast iron skillet works best for these chops. Place pan on burner over medium heat. Add the oil.

Once oil shimmers, add chops to the pan, do not over crowd.

3Cook slowly on one side about 5 minutes, lower heat some if browning too quickly as cast iron cooks much faster than other skillets.

After about 4 - 5 minutes, flip chops to other side. Cook another 4 - 5 minutes.
