I have one of those grill pans, just need to season it first. Had it for 4 years now lmao one of these days I'll get around to it.Marinade... hmmm... but why? Pork Chops are pretty tasty without being drowned in sauces. I got a challenge for you... well, for everyone if they like. I am gonna hook you up with my pork chops. Try them, tell me what you think.
1 - Olive Oil
2 - Salt
3 - Pepper
4 - 1.5" - 2" Thick Boneless Pork Chops
1 - Cast Iron Grill Pan
2 - Stove Top
3 - Oven
Cooking instructions: There is a very similar video on YT as well.
Cover pork chops with olive oil on all sides. Then salt and pepper all sides. Use a good amount of both. While the pork chops are resting go ahead and set the oven to 400 degrees F and go ahead and heat the grill pan up over high heat until it just starts to lightly smoke. At this point add the pork chop(s) to the grill pan and sear 2 - 2.5 minutes on each side. Place pan into 400 degree oven. Cook for 10 min per inch of thickness. 1.5" chop - 15min, 2" chop - 20min. Let sit for 5 min then devour the most juicy and delicious Pork Chops ever.

Marinating any meat makes it more tender, juicer and flavorful. I usually cut mine into thin strips after grilling and turn them into tacos. Marinades make all meats better. A good dry rub can be good too if it's had time to sit and work its magic.
