  • 8 1/2" thick pork rib chops (bone in)
  • 1 tbsp green and pink peppercorns
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil


  • Pat the chops dry.
  • Crush the peppercorns with a meat mallet or heavy skillet. Sprinkle both sides of pork evenly with salt and peppercorns.
  • Heat the oil a large skillet over medium high heat until shimmering. Add the pork chops. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned.


  • The pork must be dry in order to brown in the skillet, so make sure to pat them dry with a paper towel before adding the seasoning.
  • Don't move the chops in the pan. Moving them around prevents them from getting browned.
  • If you don't have a big enough skillet to cook all 8 chops without crowding them, cook them in two batches. They won't brown properly if crowded.
