Servings: 5 pork chops

Ingredients: 

  • 5 pork chops (about 1-inch thick, 4-6 ounces each)
  • salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 limes, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 cup cilantro

Instructions:

  1. Pat pork chops dry and season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat olive oil in a 10-inch or larger cast iron skillet over medium-high heat until very hot.
  3. Sear pork chops for 2-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  4. Then, add butter to center of the skillet. Once it starts to foam, use a spoon to cover the pork chops in butter.
