Remember those pork chops from yesterday? One of my favorite all time breakfasts is Pork chops and eggs. So many people look at me funny when I say that as if they have never heard of it. But they eat steak and eggs right? Well my Mom made pork chops and eggs all the time and we loved it. This is a hearty breakfast that will last you all day!
Sunny Side Up Eggs
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon butter
salt and pepper to taste
In a skillet, over medium heat, melt the butter until it just starts to sizzle. Crack your eggs on a flat surface and drop egg gently in hot butter. Add salt and pepper and cover skillet immediately. After about a minute, remove skillet from heat. Leave covered until egg white is cooked, about 3-5 minutes.
Pan Seared Ribeye Pork Chops
2 bone-in ribeye pork chops
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons of butter
2 cloves of garlic, whole
1 sprig of rosemary
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel to absorb all moisture. Generously salt and pepper each side. In a large Cast Iron skillet or a heavy sauté pan, heat the skillet till it’s extremely hot. Add oil and butter and wait for it to sizzle.
Add the pork chops and then lay the garlic and rosemary around the chops. Make sure they are not crowding each other too much. There should be space between the chops in the pan or the meat will steam and not sear properly. Arrange the chops in the pan with the thickest, boniest parts towards the center of the pan where they get the most heat.
Sear the chops on high for about 2 minutes, watching carefully to get a nice golden color. Then flip on the other side and do the same thing. Turn off the heat. Cast iron hold heat and there will be more than enough heat to finish cooking them.
Next transfer the cast iron pan to the oven and turn down the heat to 300 degrees. I like to slow cook mine on low oven heat for about 30 minutes with the skillet completely covered with a tight fitting lid or aluminum foil. Once the temp has reached 145 degrees, remove skillet from oven and transfer chops to a clean plate to rest for 5 minutes.
