There are many ways to cook a good pork chop. The key is knowing how to not overcook your pork. I’m going to show you how to fix tender and perfectly seasoned broiled pork chops. I tested this recipe with both boneless chops and bone-in pork chops. I can tell you without a doubt that the bone-in pork chops are best cooked under the broiler. Just a few minutes prep and then a relatively short amount of broiling time yields mouth-watering pork chops your whole family will enjoy.
How to Broil Pork Chops
Mix together the dry rub ingredients and evenly sprinkle both sides of the chops with the rub. Line the sheet pan with parchment paper. Place the cooling rack on top of the pan – this allows for heat circulation on all sides of the pork chops. Place the oven rack in the upper third of the oven. Preheat the oven to BROIL (this is 500 degrees F in most ovens). Place the pork chops on top of the cooling rack in the prepared sheet pan. Broil the pork chops, flipping once halfway through cooking time. Allow the pork chops to rest for three minutes before serving.

A blush of pink is nothing to fear in your cooked pork chops. The USDA recommends cooking pork to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, followed by a three minute rest, before cutting into the pork. This temperature ensures the most flavorful and tender eating experience with your pork chops. The size of your chops determines how long they should be broiled –
- Smaller chops should take 4-5 minutes per side
- 3/4 inch chops should take 7-8 minutes per side
- 1 inch or more chops should take 8-10 minutes per side
