Hello Internet, virtual cooking friends. I
am Hilah. Today I am going to show you a foolproof and delicious way of making pork chops in
the skillet. Pork chops are my husband’s favorite kind of meat to eat, and I am pretty sure
they are up there with America’s favorite too, unless you are Muslim or Jewish, but
at any rate, let’s make some pork chops! Okay, so I’ve got some boneless pork chops
and some spices and I am going to do a spice rub, and remember if you want the detailed
instructions and the ingredient list, go to the website HilahCooking.com. It’s all on
there, along with some, you know, really fascinating write-ups from myself about how much I love
food and stuff. It’s really good. Okay, so my little spice rub. I got some mustard seeds,
some dried thyme, some black pepper. I am going to grind this all together. Okay, now
I’ve got this ground up, I am going to add some salt and some paprika. Give it a
little whirl around the bowl. Okay, now on
to my meat stuffs. These are really thick. They are a little more than an inch thick,
so I am going to go ahead and butterfly them to make them thinner, they’ll cook faster,
they’ll cook more evenly, and they’re also at room temperature which is pretty important
when you’re cooking meat is that it just cooks more evenly, you don’t end up with all like
raw in the middle because it’s cold. Okay, this is how you butterfly something.
Okay, so you can see with these like one side has kind of a line of fat on it. I am going
to cut from that side just get it about in the middle, hold it still, and slice across,
don’t cut all the way through. This is the butterfly part of it. Then you end up with
a thing like that. You can kind of flatten it out, and now we have one bigger pork chop
made out of our smaller pork chop. Ta da! And it’s like a little butterfly look. Fly
away little butterfly, fly away. [laughs] That’s enough touching raw meat. Actually
it’s not, I am about to touch it some more. I am going to turn on my skillet so that’s
getting hot while I put my, c’mon oven, while I put my rub on. Now this here makes enough
for four pork chops, so I’ll just use not all of it, how’s that? Just kind of sprinkle
it on there, get it evenly coated, and kind of pat it in. Getting pork juice all over the place. It’s
like a salmonella free-for-all in here. Okay, now I am going to flip them and do the other
side. Okay, my pan is real hot. I am going to put in about a tablespoon of butter and
a tablespoon of oil. Hopefully I can get it in there before my butter burns. Yeah, get
that all around. That’s sizzling hot! Okay, now I am going to put my little pork chop
then. Get in there you pork chops. Okay, now these are going to. Owww! These are going
to take maybe three minutes on the first side, and then I’ll flip them and oww! And I might
turn the heat down. It’s popping at me. It’s just going to leave that alone over there,
it’s in over here. It’s been a couple of minutes. I turned my heat down to medium and I am going
to flip these puppies, and I got the one side, it’s all nice and brown and good looking,
but I don’t want them to cook too fast, so I turned it down and the other side will cook
a little longer. C’mon you little, there you go.
Yum! Okay, a few more minutes. Okay, it’s been about six minutes total, and I believe
my little pork chop babies are done. So, I am going to check them with a little knife,
and see how it looks in there. Looks only very slightly, slightly pink in the very middle,
but everything else is white and done looking. So I am going to pull this one out. Now I
will take a bite of my pork chop and prove to you how yummy it is by the look on my face
of pure joy when I eat it. Mmmmmm! Mmmmmmm! Delicious and tender pork chops. Mmmmmmm!
Mmmmmmmm! Mmmmmmmm! Hold on. Mmmmmmm! Mmmmmmm! Okay, now don’t forget to check out the website
for the full recipe and all that stuff at HilahCooking.com, and tell your friends about
the show and I will see you next time. Bye!
