- 1 recipe Pork chop marinade
- 4 8-oz Pork chops (boneless or bone-in)
- 1 tbsp Butter
Prepare the pork chop marinade according to the instructions here. Marinate the steaks for 1-12 hours (but not longer). (Alternatively, you can simply season generously with salt and pepper and skip the marinade, but the marinade makes them so juicy!)
Remove the chops from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). At the same time, preheat a cast iron grill pan on the stovetop over medium-high heat, about 2-3 minutes.
Once the oven is just a few minutes away from being preheated, add the butter and heat until melted, tilting the pan to coat. Add the pork chops in a single layer. Sear for 2-3 minutes, without moving, until browned with grill marks on the bottom. Flip and sear for 1-2 minutes on the other side.
Transfer the pan to the preheated oven. Bake until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Use a probe thermometer for best results, but here is a guideline for pork chop baking times:
* 1" thick boneless pork chops: 6-8 minutes
* 1/2" thick boneless pork chops: 3-4 minutes
* 1" thick bone-in pork chops: 8-10 minutes
* 1/2" thick bone-in pork chops: 5-6 minutes
Remove the pork chops from the oven and transfer to a plate. (Do not leave them in the pan or they will be overcooked.) Let the chops rest for 3-5 minutes.
Serving size: 1 pork chop
Only 1/4 of the marinade is included in the nutrition calculation, as a lot is discarded after marinating the pork chops.
