    Place the pork chops in the skillet and sear until they develop a nice crust, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Then, reduce the heat to medium and cook the chops, flipping occasionally, until they are cooked through (test using a thermometer or cut into a chop with a knife), another 3 to 5 minutes. Once done, transfer the pork to a plate.
