Ingredients

  • 2 Pork Chops 8oz - 12oz
  • 5 Cloves Garlic
  • 1/2 Onion Medium sized
  • 5 Leaves Sage
  • 4 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 tbsp Butter

Instructions

Prep

  • Lay them out on a cutting board and taking a sharp knife, cut through the fat straight down every 2 inches to prevent the chop from curling.
  • Season chop liberally with salt and black pepper.
  • Crack garlic with the flat side of a knife and remove the papery skin. Set aside.
  • Chop roughly 1/2 onion into large chunks. Set aside.

Cook

  • Put a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil.
  • When oil just starts to smoke, add the pork chops, laying away from you to avoid hot oil spatter.
  • Cook from 4 to 8 minutes on the first side, depending on the size. Flip to the other side.
  • Turn heat to medium and add the onion, garlic, sage, and butter.
  • Move ingredients around, mixing well with the butter and olive oil.
  • Baste the pork chops often with the butter and olive oil.
  • Cook the other side for 4-8 minutes, depending on the size.
  • When almost done, using tongs, sear sides of the pork chops by holding the pork chop perpendicular. Do all sides of both and finish cooking this side.
  • Remove from heat and allow to rest for the length of time it took to cook, 8 to 16 minutes.
  • Drizzle the garlic, onions, sage and butter sauce over chops and serve.
