pork chops. INSTRUCTIONS Heat olive oil and butter over medium-high heat until pan is very hot, about 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. Slowly add pork chops to hot pan and let sear for 3-5 minutes. Don't touch them! Flip pork chops and do the exact same thing. Carefully remove pork chops from heat, place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil for at least 5 minutes before serving.
