Method 1 – Oven Baked Pork Chop

  1. Preheat the oven at 400°F
  2. Season all of the sides of pork chop, and let it rest for 30 minutes
  3. Heat a cast iron pan and sear both sides of the pork chop for 5 minutes, then oven bake for about 15 minutes (1.5 inches thick pork chop), until the internal temperature reaches 145°F

Method 2 – Grilled pork chop

  1. Heat the grill at 400°F.
  2. Season all of the sides of pork chop, and let it rest for 30 minutes
  3. After seasoning, use foil to wrap the pork chop. Toss the pork chop directly in the grill. Grill both side with foil for 5 minutes.
  4. Take the pork out of the foil, grill both sides for 5 minutes.


As pork chop has a lot of lean parts, one of the biggest challenges to cook a pork chop is to not overcook and dry it out. Use a meat thermometer to determine if the pork is cooked. The National Pork Board recommends cooking chops to an internal temperature of 145°F.
