In This Recipe
In a plastic bag or a bowl combine all the ingredients and let marinate for 30 minute or up to 1 day.
Once the pork chops are done marinating get a heavy bottom pan and put in 1 tablespoon of oil and turn to high heat. For pan reccomdations I would go with a cast iron! I have a link at the very bottom of this recipe for the exact cast iron I used if you are interested in one!
Once the pan is hot enough place the pork chops down in a nice even layer. Every surface of the pork chop should be touching because you want to sear the pork chops not boil them.
After 4 minutes are up, flip the pork chops over and repeat for another 4 minutes.
Take out of the pan and repeat if necessary. Otherwise top with your topping and get ready to eaaattttt!
