  • Salt and pepper to season with
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce (approximately)


  1. Preheat cast iron skillet on medium heat.

  2. Rub the pork chops with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on each side of the pork chops.

  3. Place pork chops in the skillet once it is hot.
  4. Cook for 7-8 minutes on one side and flip the pork chops. Pour the barbecue sauce on the pork chops (just on one side) and cook for an additional 7-8 minutes.
  5. If you have a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature. It should read 145 degrees once done.

  6. Serve with additional barbecue sauce, optional.

Recipe Notes

You can also cook the pork chops in the oven.  Just preheat you oven to 350 degrees.  Place your cast iron skillet in the oven while it preheats so that the skillet preheats as well.  Rub the pork chops with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper before placing them in the preheated skillet.  Cook them for 20-25 minutes (do not need to flip them).  Add the barbecue sauce at the end, at the last five minutes.  You can check them with a meat thermometer if you prefer.  The temperature should read 145 degrees once done.
