On a cast iron skillet

What you will need

2 thick pork chops

Salt

Pepper

Cooking oil

How to cook

1

Season chops

Give your pork chops a healthy coating of salt and pepper on both sides.

2

Heat your pan

Heat some cooking oil in a cast iron skillet. I use olive oil and wait for the pan to just begin to smoke.

3

Drop your chops

Carefully lay those guys in the pan.

4

Brown and flip

Give them a few minutes to brown. Try to get comfortable with the heat. Use your hands if you can. You can peek if you want.

5

Let the other side cook

You can kinda see your cooking progress on the sides. Look at that pink shining through. Still raw, right?

6

And the fatty rims

You wanna brown the sides as well. There's some fat on the edges that'll crisp up nice.

7

Rest. Then slice.

Give them a good 10 minutes to relax and  carry over. Slice, against the grain of the meat, as always.

Arrange and serve

They should have a little pink in there still, nice and tender.

I will have to say. That is a proper pork chop! Here in the USA we have bred pigs to have little to no marbling and due to customer demand. Sir this is the best way to enjoy that swine! As long as you buy from a reputable company.
