Pan Fried Boneless Chops

How to make Pan Fried Boneless Chops.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • fresh parsley and thyme


  1. Remove the pork chops from the fridge 20 minutes ahead of time.
  2. Pat dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture and set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, mix garlic powder, paprika, salt and black pepper.
  4. Rub the chops on all sides with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
  5. Then rub in the seasoning mixture evenly on all sides.
  6. Place a large cast iron pan on medium-high heat.
  7. When hot, add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and swirl the pan to coat.
  8. Add the pork chops and fry until the internal temperature reaches 140°F / 60°C, flipping every minute to prevent overheating.
  9. Cooking time will be about 6-7 minutes in total (about 3-4 minutes per side) for 1-inch chops.
  10. Add optional thyme to the pan halfway through.
  11. Remove from heat and transfer the pork chops to a plate.
  12. Cover with foil or a plate and let rest for 3-5 minutes to let the juices redistribute through the meat.
  13. Garnish with optional minced parsley before serving.
