These cast iron pork chops are amazingly delicious and searing them first delivers all the flavor. This recipe begins with 4 pork chops from the meat section in your local grocery store. I actually had these pork chops frozen for close to a month before cooking them last night.
Allow the pork chops to thaw completely, if cooking from frozen for the best flavor. Drizzle each side with olive oil, salt and pepper. For added flavor I added a lemon pepper blend blend from the spice aisle in the grocery store.
In a large cast iron pan brown 4 tablespoons of butter. Sear each seasoned pork chop for 4 minutes on each side. Slide the pork chops in the cast iron pan into a preheated 350 degree oven for an additional 10 minutes to ensure they are each cooked thoroughly. Upon removing the pork chops from the oven, throw in 1 cup of thawed sweet peas. I served these pork chops and peas along side mashed potatoes.
