There’s a reason we love adding pork chops into our meal rotation. Much like chicken breasts, this quick-cooking cut of meat is super-versatile. Pork chops can be cooked a ton of different ways — in the oven, on the stovetop, over a grill, in an Instant Pot, or air fryer. Personally, I like to cook my pork chops in my cast-iron skillet, but whatever your favorite method is, we have the best pork chop recipes for you.
