Half the pork chops I cook are in a fry pan. I love them that way. I start em fast and finish em slow. A good coating of oil if using a SS pan.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

Okay, this is taking way more than 8 minutes. I washed off the coating (it tasted gross) and just did salt and pepper and did a cherry/apple glaze to finish it off.

I browned on both sides in oil for 4 minutes each and now have the pan turned down the heat but after 20 minutes, the inside is only at 145 degrees.

I don't know if it helped Callisto, but it sure made me want to run out and buy some nice thick chops.

Thanks for the lesson.

Goodweed, the suggestions were FABULOUS. Even my daughter is raving. The method helped for tender chops and makes me want to do it again (and I generally don't eat pork). The glaze was 1/4 jar of cherry preserves and 2 scoops of clear apple jelly. It was amazing. So simple yet so wonderful. And, YES, I did use meat tenderizer. I'm an official convert. The trick, for me, was slow cooking at the end to get it up to temp. I'm in love. This was great.

pork chops

i use the flour, egg wash and panko combo and fry it in a skillet with enough evoo to cover , even in a non-stick. use med low to med heat . they become golden brown, turn em over and do the other side. the inside should be done, juicy and yummy tasting with a great crispy crusts. i only use a bit of seasoned salt and pepper.
