Tasty Pork Chops PT30M https://img1.recipesrun.com/201907/2019/0806/b3/d/003287/300x200x90.jpg How to make a perfect pork chop every time? Yeah, yeah, I've had my share of dry, over-cooked chops, too, but when cooked right, they’re magic. Like steak or chicken, pork also needs a lot of salt to bring out all the flavor. If you want to be fancy, you can brine the pork chops in some saltwater (season it with other stuff like whole peppercorns and bay leaves). Pork chops tend to be so thin that they can dry out super fast when cooked over high heat in a skillet. Instead, I like to sear them FAST in a hot skillet, just long enough to develop a crust and then transfer to the oven to finish cooking. Sear-roasting will help seal in the juices and prevent them from drying out before the center is fully cooked through. Once the chops are seared, you have a very important task: Brush 'em with garlic butter. I like to stir in a fresh herb (rosemary, thyme, oregano) or two, too — I can't get enough of these garlic butter pork chops and have a feeling you'll love them too. 4 servings Ingredients: 2 tbsp. Freshly chopped herbs 2 cloves Garlic, minced 4 tbsp. Butter, melted 2 tbsp. Extra-virgin olive oil Freshly ground black pepper Kosher salt 4 Bone-in pork chops
