  1. Use a knife to cut off excess white fat around the edges of the chops.
  2. For the best sear and to help seasonings adhere to pork chops, pat the pork chops with paper towels.
  3. Add a sprinkling of salt and pepper (and, if desired, fresh herbs or other spices) to the pork chops.
  4. In an extra-large skillet heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add 2 bone-in chops or up to 4 boneless pork chops. Cook about 6 minutes or until the surfaces are perfectly browned. Flip the chops as needed for an even sear.
  5. If using an oven-safe skillet, place it directly in the oven. If your skillet is not oven-going, transfer the seared pork chops to a 15 ⨯ 10 ⨯ 1-inch baking sheet. Bake pork chops that are about 1¼-inch thick at 350°F for 14 to 17 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F.
  6. Cover and let baked pork chops stand 3 minutes.
