These quick-and-easy smoked pork chops are fully cooked so they only need to be warmed in a frying pan, under the broiler or on the grill, taking all of about 10 to 14 minutes.

Add braised cabbage and a green vegetable and you have a satisfying meal.

When you have a taste for ham but don't want to mess with a butt or shank portion or even a ham slice, smoked pork chops are the perfect stand-in. You can even treat them like ham by serving with sweet potatoes or potato salad and glazed pineapple.


  • 4 (1/2-inch) fully cooked smoked pork chops, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon butter or oil

Steps to Make It

  1. To pan fry: Add butter or oil to large skillet, add chops and warm 4 to 5 minutes per side or until lightly golden. Do not overcook.
