Bobby’s Special Seared and Baked Thick-Cut Pork Chops

Pin It    


Bobby’s technique of searing the chops and finishing them in the oven gives them a tenderness we haven’t found in any other preparation method. Purchase bone-in chops; the bones keep the meat extra moist and juicy.


4 12-ounce bone-in pork chops, about 1 1/4 inches thick
1 clove garlic, halved
Freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Preheat oven to 350®F. Rub each chop all over with the cut sides of the garlic halves and season with salt and pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Sear the chops in the oil 3 minutes per side or until paper-sack brown.

Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 4 minutes more. Let chops stand for 5 minutes before serving.
