- The chops should be cooked for about 4-5 minutes, depending on their thickness.
- Turn each chop over and continue cooking for another 4-5 mins, or until they reach your desired temperature.
- At least 145 degrees F is the minimum internal temperature for pork. As they rest, their internal temperature will rise by a few degrees. This is a consideration when you decide when to turn off the heat.
