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.
