Freeze For Later: Follow Step 1. Label and place the bag of pork chops and marinade in the freezer.
Prepare From Frozen: Let the pork chops thaw using one of these safe methods. Follow Steps 3-5.
Stovetop Cooking Method: In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1-2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil over medium-high heat. Remove the pork chops from the marinade but do not discard the marinade. Sear for 1 to 2 minutes per side, turning once. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, turning once, for 10-15 minutes, or until they register 140°F (temp will rise another 5° as it rests). Remove from the heat and let the chops rest 5-10 minutes.
To kick up the flavor a notch, add 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes.
Some of our readers have seared the pork chops in an oven-safe pan on the stovetop for 1-2 minutes per side and then finished baking them until done.
