How to Make Perfect Pan Seared Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sprinkle the chops with the salt, pepper and thyme (I use a generous amount) Pat the seasoning onto the pork so that it sticks nicely then let them sit on the counter for 30 minutes.
  • 2Pour the oil in a skillet and heat over medium high. Arrange the pork chops in the skillet so that they are not touching each other and cook for only about 4 minutes on each side until golden brown. You may need to turn the heat to medium low.
  • 3Turn the heat off, quickly cover with a tight fitting lid and let sit for 8-10 minutes depending on thickness of chops.
  • 4Remove the pork chops from the skillet and de-glaze the pan with a splash of white cooking wine and butter. Finally, pour the sauce over the chops & serve!
