How to make Pork Chops:

It is sometimes annoying when you make pork chops, and it curls up. To avoid that from happening;

  • Use a knife, score or make deep slits on the fat side, cutting through about ½ inch.

  • Finely chop the garlic and herbs, then marinate the chops with the rest of the ingredients and the chopped mix.

  • Sear each side for 2 minutes, then put some butter slices and lemon juice on the chops and bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes until cooked. Please check the recipe card for more details.

Can this be planned ahead?

Yes, marinate the pork chops and put them in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook, but make sure it comes to room temperature before cooking.

    NOTE: If you don't have an oven-safe skillet, you can just use any skillet but make sure you bake on a baking sheet or pan as I did, and also because my chops couldn't fit in my skillet.
  • Sear each side of the pork chops for 1 minute so that it has a charred look.
  • Repeat process for the rest of the chops but make sure you wipe the skillet before putting next batch and add more butter if needed.
