It’s time for an admission. I love pork chops, but I am awful at making them. Honestly they are always way too dry and disgusting. They are such a budget cut of meat though, so I just keep trying!

Recently, I was sent a box of meat from Butcher Box (here is the unboxing!) and included in the box were some very thick cut pork chops. I had never cooked pork chops that were this thick before, so I ran to google for suggestions. I ended up taking several different suggestions and coming up with this!

Now, every time I make pork chops, I know they will be PERFECT!

How To Cook Thick Boneless Pork Chops

Ingredients: 

  • Thick Boneless Pork Chops (between 1 1/2-2 inches)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil

Directions: 

  1. First you’ll want to bring your pork chops to room temperature (or close to it).
  2. Also, if there is fat along one side of the pork chop, you might want to “score” (cut into) it about every half inch or so.
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  4. In a heavy duty, oven safe pan, heat up about 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  5. Season your pork chops with salt and pepper
  6. Place your pork chops in your pan and brown them on all sides. This will probably take a couple of minutes per side.
  7. Once your oven is ready, put your pork chops in until they reach 145 degrees internally. This took about 10 minutes for me. (these will “cook” more during rest. Don’t skip the rest! The rest is essential!)
  8. Take your pork chops out of the oven and put them on a plate. Tent some aluminum foil over your plate.
  9. Now make your gravy (I made a simple packet gravy in the pan the pork chops cooked in…it gave it extra flavor!) and any sides while your pork chops rest for a bit.
  10. Serve your pork chops and enjoy!

Yum!
