The Cilantro Lime Pan Seared Pork Chop


The Cilantro Lime Pan Seared Pork Chop

There is something really special about the combination of cilantro and lime. This recipe is for 4 servings, and I use the “season and stack” method, so only one side of the chop is seasoned, and the second side gets seasoned when you stack them. Here we go….

(4) 5-6 ounce pork chops, bone in (not too thick, not too thin)

lightly sprinkle the following on one side of each chop, then stack the chops on top of each other, so the other side will get seasoning, too:

kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, juice of 1/2 lime (total), handful of snipped cilantro

non stick cooking spray

non stick pan

Prepare your chops, and spray your non stick pan with non stick cooking spray. Place pork chops in pan, and cook on medium-high heat for about 5 minutes on each side. The lime juice is what creates the black char look on your chops, so once you turn them over for the second side to cook, you can turn them back over for a few seconds to get that char look on the first side, too. That’s it !!! Enjoy, and look for my Cilantro Lime Butter blog post if you want a delicious teaspoon of a little extra YUMMINESS on your chops, or to spread on your bread, pour over pasta, or mix with some steamed rice.
