An easy and delicious recipe for garlic butter Pan-fried pork chops. They are juicy and your family will keep asking you to make them again and again.


  • 6 Pork Chops, bone-in
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Parsley, dried
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • Fresh Garlic cloves, optional




It’s best to take the meat out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking, bringing it closer to room temperature which will allow the spices to absorb better and will sear up faster.

If you have a cast-iron frying pan it’s a good recipe to use it on. It just has the knack of searing the best. Preheat it first before adding the meat.

You can also put the cast iron pan right in the oven afterward if you choose to.

Be sure to use a thermometer and do not overcook the meat or else it will be dry.

Salted butter will flavor the chops better than unsalted.

Always allow the pork to rest before serving to keep the juices in.
