How to store leftover pork chops:

Fridge: After you are done with dinner and the seasoned pork chops are cooled to room temperature, store them in an airtight container and place them in the fridge for up to 5 days. 

Tips and tricks for making pork chops for the first time: 

The internal temperature of pork chops: 

If you are unsure if the pork chops are done, use a meat thermometer and make sure that the pork chops at the thickest part have reached at least 145 degrees F. This will make sure that the meat is safe to eat.

How to get a good sear on pork chops:

When cooking pork and wanting to have that nice browned, crisp outside, make sure both the pan and the oil are hot before putting the meat into the pan. This will make sure that the outside gets seared well on both sides. 

After that, you can reduce the temperature until the pork reaches 145 degrees F. 

Type of ranch to use:

When making this seared pork chop recipe I like to grab a package of the Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix to make it super simple. But, you can also make homemade ranch dressing mix too!
