How To Make Cast-Iron Skillet Pork Chops

The complete list of ingredients, quantities, and instructions can be found in the printable recipe card below.

  1. Step One: Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-duty skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Step Two: Season pork chops on each side with salt and pepper to taste, and add to the preheated skillet. Brown pork chops on each side, approximately 3 minutes per side. Remove pork chops from pan and set aside on a rimmed dish.
  3. Step Three: Add balsamic vinegar and maple syrup to hot skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium and cook mixture until it’s reduced to about 1/3 of its original volume. When ready, the glaze will become thick and syrupy. (Do not overcook, or the mixture will become hard and sticky).
  4. Step Four: Return the pork chops to the skillet along with the juices that collected on the plate. Stir liquid to blend juices into the syrup and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
