How to Pan Fry Boneless Pork Chops on the Stove
There is an art to frying pork chops. How do you avoid burning pork chops on the stove? Follow these steps:
- You want to use enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. If you are cooking more than 2 pork chops, you might have to add more olive oil.
- Keep the temperature at low or medium-low. If the temperature is too hot, the oil will start to spit at you, and the pork won’t cook all the way through before the outside burns.
- You can tell the pork chops are done when the inner temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit. They will have a blush of pink in the middle.
What is the best way to make pork chops?
There are a few ways but I like stovetop pork chops best. You can also grill pork chops, which is my second favorite way. I do really like the grill marks and the incredible grilled flavor.
