How to make Greek pork chops

Make a simple marinade of olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, freshly minced garlic, dried oregano, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper. Whisk the marinade together then pour over thick-cut pork chops. I like to remove the rind from the fat as this rind curls up when cooking causing your chops to cook unevenly. Pre-heat a skillet or griddle pan until hot then cook the pork chops for 5-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness. Once the chops are golden brown and starting to crisp, turn on to the fat side and cook for 2-3 minutes to allow the fat to render and crisp up.

Remove the chops from the pan and cover with foil. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

What temperature to cook pork chops

Pork chops should be cooked to 62ºC / 145ºF internal temperature. Depending on the thickness of the chops, this should take between 5 and 10 minutes per side in a hot pan. When the meat is opaque and white throughout, the chops are cooked.
