Servings 2


  • 2 8-12 oz. pork chops
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. butter


  • Salt both side of each chop. This can be done up to one day ahead of time.
  • Place chops on rack over a sheet pan in a 225° degree oven. Roast until the middle of each registers 142° on a digital instant read thermometer.
  • Heat frying pan over medium high heat. Add butter and wait until foaming subsides and it begins to brown, then sear both chops, flipping after about a minute. Use a lid, or better a grease screen to reduce splatter.
  • Let rest for 5-10 minutes, then serve with a sauce and sides of your choosing.
