Pan Fry

Ingredients

4 - 1/2
- 1 inch thick chops
3/4 tsp
each - kosher salt, dried thyme
1/2 tsp
each - pepper, garlic powder
2 Tbsp
oil
1/2 c
red wine
1 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Season chops evenly on both sides and let set for about 30 minutes.
2
Using 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.
3
Cook 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.
4
Place lid over skillet and remove from heat. Leave set for 10 minutes for 1/2 inch chops and a little longer for 1 inch.

Remove chops and de glaze pan with 1/2 cup red wine and add 1 tablespoon of butter to make a sauce.
5
Plate chops and pour sauce over.

Enjoy!
