Oven roasted pork chops

Start with:

2lbs thick cut boneless loin chops
Cast iron skillet
Salt
Pepper
Garlic and/or onion powder
Cayenne pepper
2 tbsp oil of choice ( I usually use grape-seed oil cause it withstands high temperature without burning)

Start by pre heating your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

Place skillet on stove over medium/ high heat. Warm up 1-2 minutes then add oil.

Season chops and place in skillet.

You want to cook the chops about 3-4 minutes per side (all 4 sides) until mostly brown.

Once you’ve browned the sides pick the side you started with and place it down on the skillet.

Place the skillet in the oven and turn the oven down to 375 degrees.

You will cook the pork chops about another 20 minutes for thick cut ones like pictured above (for thinner or hand cut pork chops you will want to cook them till you press down gently and the juices run clear, usually about 150 degrees internal temp on a meat thermometer)

Once they are cooked allow for at least 3-5 minutes resting time for juice redistribution.

Then plate and enjoy with your favorite sides. Pictured here with twice baked, stuffed potatoes with vegan cheese and broccoli, and the recipe for mom’s home made chunky applesauce.
