1 inch cut Pork Chop
1 tbsp Butter
1/2 Lemon Juice
Goya Adobo seasoning

Now give a liberal seasoning of the Goya Adobo seasoning, you can find this seasoning in the Latin isle at your local grocery store. If you cannot find it, use some season salt and a bit of ground oregano. Finish off with some Black pepper and smoked paprika.
Preheat your cast iron skillet or stainless steal skillet over medium heat. Once hot place your chops in the pan and cook on the first side for 2 1/2 - 3 mins then flip. Allow to cook for 1 1/2 to 2 mins, then baste some butter on the top of the pork chop. This will add some great flavors and juices back to the pork chop.
Check the temperature of the pork chop. If it is not 145 degrees internal temperature flip and cook for another min, and do so until the temperature meets that degree. Finish off with another basting of the butter and then sear the fat cap for 1 min.
