All Fried Pork Chops Are Not Created Equally - Quick and Simple Version

I find one of the best ways to buy pork chops is to buy a whole boneless pork loin and have the butcher but it into 1 1/2" chops.  I find good one's at Sams Club at very reasonable prices.

This recipe is for simple fried chops.  Quick easy and delicious.  Has a hint of heat - but only a hint. No oil is needed.  They come out moist and juicy on the inside with a nice brown sear on the outside. 

4 thick cut boneless pork chops
Pepper Blend  -  I use the kind you buy at the grocery store in the grinder.  Make sure it's a blend of peppers
                         and not just one kind of pepper corns. 
Garlic Salt

Coat one side of the chops in a light even coating of ground pepper,  then cover lightly with garlic salt.

Get your cast iron or non stick skillet HOT - then put the chops seasoning down in the pan and turn heat down to medium high.  Let is sear until clear liquid runs from top (about 7 - 8 minutes, depends on thickness or chops and how hot the pan is) then season the tops and flip them over.  Cook till juice runs clear again and remove from the heat.
