  • 2 medium-sized pork chops — (I like to recommend pork chops from ButcherBox because it's heritage breed pork)
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 tablespoons butter — melted (use ghee if you're doing whole30)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme — chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic — minced
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  2. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, mix together the butter, thyme, and garlic. Set aside.

  4. In a cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  5. When the skillet is really hot, add the pork chops. Sear until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

  6. Pour the garlic butter mixture over the pork chops.

  7. Place the skillet in the oven, and cook until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145ºF, about 10-12 minutes. The time depends on the thickness of your pork chops.*

  8. Remove from the oven. Using a spoon, pour some of the butter sauce left in the skillet onto the pork chops before serving.

Recipe Notes

* Insert the thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop.
