Juicy and mouthwatering pan-fried Boneless Pork Chops that are perfect for a weeknight dinner with family and friends. There one too many reasons why I love these; it’s low carb, budget-friendly, easy to cook, not to mention extra delicious! My go-to for a quick meal.


4 boneless pork chops, 1-inch thick
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder, or onion powder
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
fresh parsley and thyme, optional garnish


Step 1: For even cooking, allow the pork chops to reach room temperature. Take them out of the fridge at least 20 minutes before cooking.

Step 2: Remove excess moisture, pat the chicken dry with paper towels, and set aside.

Step 3: Add the garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Mix well. Or drop the salt if using brined pork chops.

Step 4: With a tbsp of olive oil, rub the chops on all sides. Then, coat evenly with seasoning mixture on each side.

Step 5: Heat a large cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Once hot, drizzle a tbsp of oil, swirling the pan to coat.

Step 6: Fry the pork chops, flipping each minute so it’ll not overheat until it reaches 140 degrees F or 60 degrees C internal temperature.

Step 7: Add thyme to the pan halfway through cooking if desired.

Step 8: Once done cooking, transfer the chops to a plate. Use a foil to cover the plate, allowing the chops to rest for about 3 to 5 minutes to redistribute the juices within the meat.

Step 9: Before serving, garnish with minced parsley if desired. Enjoy!


1. I prefer refined olive oil because it has a higher smoke period compared to extra virgin olive oil

2. Use an instant-read thermometer and insert it in the middle of the chops. Remove the chops from heat once it reads 140 degrees F or 60 degrees C. The temp while resting will rise to 145 degrees F or 63 degrees C (safe level).

Cooking time based on thickness:

¾ inch 4-5 min
1 inch 6-7 min
1 ¼ inch 7-8 min
1 ½ inch 8-10 min

3. For leftovers, make sure to store them in an airtight container for up to 3 days. When serving, reheat for about 5 to 7 minutes on medium-low or 3 to 4 minutes with 50% power in the microwave.
