Easy Pan Fried Pork Chops with Garlicy Marinade

  • Author: Living the Gourmet
  • Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 6 Pork loin center cut rib chops - bone-in - about 3/4 inch thickness

For the Marinade:

  • 5 - 6 cloves of garlic - crushed and chopped
  • 1/4 - 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion - sliced thin
  • 3 scallions - chopped
  • 3 - 4 tbs. of fresh Italian parsley - chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano - crushed
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes


  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the marinade in a large shallow bowl.
  2. Place the pork in the bowl and refrigerate for at least one hour or up to overnight.
  3. Heat a large cast iron pan and place the pork chops in the pan and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side; turning once.  The juices should run clear and the internal temperature should read 145 degrees F. when an instant-read thermometer is inserted.  The more firm when gently pressed the more well done the pork is.
  4. Scrape the bits from the pan and top over the pork.
  5. Let the pork rest for a minute or two before cutting into.
