Rosemary Garlic Pork Chops

If you need a quick dinner idea using those pork chops in your refrigerator, this is a simple recipe with great results. I would imagine you could switch out the rosemary for thyme or another favorite herb too. I love that there are very few ingredients and the instructions are not complicated. A great weeknight meal.

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook 4 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium; add butter, rosemary, and garlic. Cook, turning pork occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until instant-read thermometer inserted in each chop registers 155 degrees F. Remove skillet from the heat. Cover loosely with foil; let stand 5 minutes. Spoon pan drippings over pork chops.

    Just what I was looking for. I recently bought a cast iron skillet and been loving it for steaks and chicken. My boyfriend likes pork chops and I always tend to make them super dry. Can't wait to try this method out on my skillet. Looks delicious!
