5 stars from 1 rating of Broiled Pork Chops


  • 1/2 teaspoon Johnnys Seasoned Salt
  • 4 pork chops


  1. Place pork chops in a plastic box with lid. Sprinkle seasoned salt on both sides. Cover. Place in refrigerator for a couple hours.
  2. Place aluminum foil on a baking sheet, preheat your broiler, place your pork shops on the foil, leaving spaces between them.
  3. Broil for 9 minutes. Then flip over and broil for an additional 9 minutes.
  4. Pork chops will turn gray instead of pink when they are done. You can check this at the end of the second 9 minutes, but they should be done.

Seasoning the Chops Is Elemental

Pork chops are from a butchered pig. The pork chop is sliced and the best way to season them is to place them in a covered dish, sprinkle Johnny's Seasoned salt on both sides, and let them absorb some of the seasoning.

Then, later, preheat your broiler, place the chops on an aluminum foil covered sheet and put under the broiler, not directly below the broiler but on the second shelf of your oven. It's the shelf that is 6 3/4 inches from the top.

Set your timer to 9 minutes and then, when the timer beeps, flip your chops over and broil them for an additional 9 minutes.

This broiling will add a caramelizing to your fat and the insides will no longer be pink. A light gray color is what you'll have when they are done. They will be juicy and no need to cook them until they are dry.

It's Delicious

The saltiness from the seasoned salt, plus a garlic flavor. The aroma will get you ready and you will not be disappointed.
