Pork chops are a family favorite dinner recipe. You’ll need only a handful of simple ingredients to make this delicious dinner. These chops are made in a skillet along with green beans and are coated in a garlic butter sauce.

What cut of pork chops should I buy?

This recipe will work with both boneless center cut chops and bone-in center cut chops. The bone will ensure more even cooking, but boneless will also be delicious.

What temperature does pork need to be cooked to?

Pork needs to be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooking times for pork chops will vary slightly based on how thick your chops are cut. Use a meat thermometer to ensure accuracy.
