Pork Chops and Apple Sauce

Another quick recipe for all of you busy people out there.  Normally I don’t cook pork chops. Lately, I’ve had numerous people tell me that Arty’s Party Rub is delicious on Pork Chops. So many, in fact, that I couldn’t take it anymore.  I had to try them out!

Pork chops are an interesting type of meat. You can bake em, fry em, bbq em, slow cook em and even stuff em.  For me, I like to sear mine in a cast iron skillet.  Not only does it create a great browning on the outside, but it helps keep in the moisture as well. Plus, it only takes about 10 min to cook!

I like a nice center cut pork chop without the bone.  Now, I know some of you are saying, blasphemy, pork chops without a bone! It’s mainly a preference of convenience as I find it easier not to eat around the bone and they were on sale at the market this week :).  If you’re cooking with the bone in, make sure to add a minute or so to each side when you cook it.

I’m always looking for new ways to cook so let me know how you like to cook your pork chops below!
