Pan Roasted Pork Loin Chops

These tender and juicy Pan Roasted Pork Loin Chops are perfect for weeknight meals. They take only minutes to prepare and the flavor can be tailored to suit your palate. Make them unique by using your own blend of dry rubs. I am sure your family will enjoy them just as much as we do.

Technique and timing is of utmost importance when cooking pork chops as they can be easily over cooked. Since it takes only minutes, do not be tempted to continue cooking as the meat will dry out very quickly and become chewy. If you are concerned that they are not cooked through, use an instant read thermometer. The thickest part of the chops should register between 140°F to 145°F (60°C to 63°C).

Pan Roasted Pork Loin Chops

Always use pork loin chops that are at least ¾ inch thick so that they do not dry out during the cooking process. You will have to increase the roasting time to about 12 minutes for 1 inch thick chops.

    Looks lovely as I’d imagined them to be, and I am sure they taste delicious too. The cinnamon and chile dry rub on the pork must have complemented very well with the pear in wine syrup.
