Pan-Seared Thick-Cut Pork Chops
Why This Recipe Works
In search of a perfect seared pork chop recipe, we turned the conventional cooking method upside down, first cooking salted chops in a low oven, then searing them in a smoking pan. Slowly cooking the meat allowed enzymes to break down protein, tenderizing the chops. The salted surface gently dried out in the oven and became beautifully caramelized in the pan. The result was a pan-seared pork chop recipe that was perfect inside and out.
