Protein: Pork
Cut: Pork Chop
Course: Main Course
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 4 pork chops bone-in
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon high-heat cooking oil (we like ghee or avocado oil)


  • A day before you're planning to cook, toss the pork chops with the salt (add any optional spices here) and refrigerate in a zip-top bag overnight. (Note: This step can be skipped if you forgot to plan ahead.)
  • About 20 to 30 minutes before cooking, take the chops out of the fridge and pat dry. Set oven to 375°F.
  • Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes. Add the ghee or oil, and when it's hot, sear the pork chops for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Place the skillet in the oven and roast for about 10 minutes, or until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest section registers 145°F.
  • Rest the meat for 5 to 10 minutes, then carve (if serving sliced) and serve.
