Maple Pan Fried Pork Chops with Compound Butter from ChezUs

** serves 2

Heavy Frying Pan
Meat Thermometer

2 1 1/2″ inch thick bone-in pork chops
Tonewood Maple Seasoning
1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons sunflower oil

How To:
Place the butter into a small mixing bowl and break apart with a fork.
Stir in 1 tablespoon of Tonewood Maple Seasoning.
Place the butter on plastic wrap and roll into a log, and then place in the refrigerator.
Take the pork chops out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.
Generously season both sides of the chops with some of the Tonewood Maple Seasoning.
Preheat a large frying pan.
Pour in the sunflower oil.
Add the pork chops to the sizzling oil.
Sear each side for 3 minutes over medium low heat.
Cover your frying pan and let the chops finish cooking for 5 – 8 minutes or until 140 degrees (invest in a meat thermometer, it will save your meat).
Remove from the heat, place on a serving platter, with a slice of the butter placed on top of each chop, and let them sit for 5 minutes, this will bring the temperature up to 145 which is ideal for good pork.

Save the extra butter for other grilled meat recipes or for roasted root veggies.
