Ingredients

  • 1 0.33 lbs or 150 grams Boneless Pork Chop or Butterflied Pork Chop (check note)
  • Season of choice
  • ¼ – ½ tsp Oil

Seasoning (approximate measures)

  • – ¼ tsp Black Pepper Powder
  • ½ tsp Chili Powder
  • tsp Roasted Cumin
  • – ¼ tsp Salt adjust to taste
  • ¼ – ½ tsp Ginger Garlic Paste can use ginger powder & garlic powder

Instructions

  • Take chops in a dish, sprinkle seasoning and rub into chops.
  • Marinate for 1 – 2 hours or overnight. If marinating for more than 24 hours, add some turmeric to seasoning. It is optional but acts as a preservative.
  • If refrigerating, bring the chops to room temperature. Keep it on the counter for about an hour.
  • Heat oil in a pan. I use a cast iron pan. When the pan and oil are hot, place the chops in the pan, cover ¾ – ⅝ of the way and cook on medium – medium high flame for about 3 minutes or until bottom is charred.
  • Uncover, flip chops, cover the pan partky and cook for another 2 – 3 minutes until chops are cooked and juices run clear.
  • Remove from pan and serve with some roasted vegetables or use it as a fillet for sandwiches.

Notes

  • Pork Chops – I usually ask the butcher at the meat counter to cut a pork chop into two and pound it to flatten the chop. When butterflied pork chops are in stock, I get those. Depending on how thick the chop is, I ask the butcher to pound it, to flatten the meat. Thinner the chop, faster it cooks.
  • Seasoning – I use simple homemade seasoning for this recipe. One can use any seasoning; creole, cajon, Italian seasoning, etc.
