Best Way To Cook Bone-In Pork Chops Instructions:

Pork has always been a challenge for me. Playing it too safe and cooking it too long results in a dry pork chop that no one is happy with. Undercooking it runs the risk of getting you and your guests sick and also a spongey texture that does not feel great to bite into. After much success with the steak cooking method, I decided to try it out with the bone in pork chops. By modifying the recipe slightly, I found that this is the best way to cook pork chops. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 Pork Chops (bone in, about 1 inch thick)
  • 2 TBSP Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Pork Seasoning
  • Oven Safe Pan Or Pot

Prep time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 44 minutes

Best Way To Cook Bone-In Pork Chops Step By Step Instructions:

  1. Start by seasoning the pork chops all over by rubbing in a generous helping of salt and pepper and your pork seasoning.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to each pork chop and gently rub it in.
  3. Let the pork chops stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow seasoning to set in.
  4. Once the pork chops have been seasoned for 30 minutes, turn the oven on to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  
  5. Once the oven has warmed to 400F, put your oven-safe pan (or pot—I used a Le Cruset in my case) on the stove top and begin warming said ove-safe pot or pan on a very high heat—we want the pan to be very very warm!
  6. Sear the pork for 3 minutes on one side in the hot pan. 
  7. Flip the pork chops over once and transfer the pan into the oven on the middle rack of the oven and cook for 6 minutes.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on the stovetop and remove the pork chops from the pan and let rest on a plate for 5 minutes.
    1. You are welcome to use the red wine sauce recipe from our steak recipe at this step.
  9. Serve pork chops with the red wine sauce on top, or topping(s) of your choice. You will have a very juicy pork chop with all of the flavor and texture that you’d want in a pork chop either way.

You can serve them with a side of baked beans to complete the meal as well as the red wine sauce from our steak recipe

And that is the best way I found to cook bone-in pork chops in a pan! 

It’s very simple and delivers all of the flavor and tenderness you want in a pork chop.
