Default Cast Iron Seared Pork Chops

Advertise Here

Even here in Florida, there are days when it's too darn cold to bother with the grill. We love eating pork chops and this is an awesome way to prepare them without resorting to frying.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, preheat cast iron skillet over medium high heat, add 1 tablespoon of oil. When hot, add seasoned pork chops and sear for 2 minutes (do not move them!). Turn, and sear other side for 1 minute.

Place skillet and chops in preheated oven. Bake 5 to 8 minutes (depending on the thickness of your chops). 1/2" chops are usually done at 5 minutes.

The chops get a nice crusty sear, but the inside stays tender and juicy.

Sounds tasty.

Check out this oven cooked, bacon wrapped, pork chop recipe that I cook in a cast iron skillet.

Thick cut pork chops (boneless)
strips of bacon, I use 2 per chop
Fresh cracked Pepper
Any herb mixture you like.

Wrap the bacon around the pork chop. If they are thinner you can use 1 slice, but nice big thick chops might take 2 to cover. When you bake them at 400 it takes about 30 minutes but then you'll want to broil the chops about 4 inches from the broiler until the crisp and turn golden. If you grill them they will be done when your bacon is done!

The show 'Good Eats' recently did Myth Smasher episode about 'searing meat'. It is pretty interesting.

I watched it on Hulu.
