THIS ^^ is exactly the same as THIS.... Ron just used more words is all.

And are both what I like to do.

Boneless chops only really suck when they're overcooked and for ME at least.....that's exactly what I did with them for far too long before I finally learned to throw that whole "pork is not safe to eat until it's cooked to 165 IT" boochit. When the USDA came out and adjusted pork's safe eating temp to 145 (I think it was), they made pork chop eating a WHOLE lot less nerve racking for a lot of us.

Reverse sears are MO perfect I think, but FOR ME, it's easier to overshoot my internal temps on a smaller cut like chops. So it's a quick sear than finish on the cooler side.
