I do not use that much grease to sear. After searing I drop a tablespoon of water in the pan and cover.

Excellent! They were wonderful and very easy to make this way. As an aside, my dad always dipped his pork chops in yellow mustard. I tried it and have eaten my pork chops with mustard ever since... and that was when I was about 12 (48 years ago)!

I've been pan frying these bone-in chops for a while. My way is similar as I use olive oil/butter and soy sauce but I roast minced garlic, season my chops, brown both sides on top of the roasted garlic on med-hi, then turn it down to low, cover and let them slowly cook about 5 min each side. Let them rest 10 min and enjoy with your favorite sides!!

I had never made pork chops before, but I have quite a bit of experience cooking in general. I followed the first few steps in this video and found very quickly that my chops were cooking way too fast. I ended up searing the chops for only 2 minutes on the first side and then 1 minute on the other. I was very worried that the chops were going to burn. I turned the heat down to low like the video says and ended up taking them off the heat all together because I did not want them to over cook. I was not happy with the result. I recommend not searing them at high heat, because the chops were too black and started to char after only 2 minutes. I tried chops again using my electric skillet and they turned out much better. I will never use these steps again, as I have heard over and over that the worst thing you can do to a chop is over cook it.
