To make a delicious Bone-In Pork Chop Recipe, you will need the following equipment:

  1. Cast iron skillet: A cast iron skillet is the best choice for cooking bone-in pork chops because it can withstand high temperatures, distributes heat evenly, and helps create a crispy crust on the outside of the meat.
  2. Meat thermometer: A meat thermometer is essential to cook pork chops properly. This will help prevent overcooking and ensure the meat is juicy and tender.
  3. Tongs: You’ll need tongs to flip the pork chops as they cook and to remove them from the skillet when they are done. Tongs allow you to handle the meat without piercing it and losing its juices.
  4. Cutting board: A cutting board for a stable surface for cutting and preparing vegetables.
  5. Chef’s knife: A sharp chef’s knife is necessary to trim and prepare pork chops and vegetables.
  6. Oven mitts: Oven mitts protect your hands when handling the cast iron skillet, which can become very hot during cooking or a baked bone-in pork chops

The right equipment is important to execute the recipe and achieve the desired results properly. A cast iron skillet will help create a crispy crust on the pork chops while ensuring they cook evenly.

I’ve used and recommend both cookware sets, the ScanPan 10-Piece Cookware Set and the HexClad 7-Piece Hybrid; both are well-made pans with a solid, heavy bottom, heat fast, and they get the job done. Visit the ScanPan or HexClad on Amazon.

How do I cook pork chops so they don’t dry out?
