4 bone-in porkchops, 1″ thick
kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Extra virgin olive oil
1 Garlic clove, minced
4 sprigs fresh thyme
1 lemon, cut into 1/4” wheels
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut in half
2 c. baby arugula
Flaky sea salt


  1. Preheat a large cast iron pan over high heat. Pat each pork chop dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper on all sides. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the pan and add two pork chops. Sear on high for 5 minutes on each side. Remove the pork chops to rest while you cook the last two pork chops.

  1. Pork chops, thick center cut as what had on hand, were perfect. Inadvertently added a cup of broth to glaze. Tried to correct and thicken with corn starch. Flavor there but my error.! Tried again with roasted pork tenderloin using this glaze which was perfect. Oh my, recipe is definitely a keeper for chops and pork tenderloin. We love it, thanks!
