Perfectly Seared Pork Chops

Perfectly seared pork chops are caramelized and golden on the outside and slightly pink in the center. To achieve this, it’s best to sear the chops on high heat for 2-5 minutes on each side. However, knowing when the pork chop is medium done rather than rare is a bit tricky. Try pressing the chop and if it feels slightly “springy,” it’s done.
