  • Sous Vide
  • Vacuum Sealer
  • Vacuum Seal Bags
  • Stock Pot
  • Cast Iron Skillet


  • 4 boneless pork chops 1-2 inches thick
  • garlic salt
  • Kentucky rub seasoning
  • olive oil for searing
  • apricot habanero jelly for topping


  • Season both sides of the pork chops with garlic salt and the Kentucky rub seasoning. If you have other seasonings you'd like to use, feel free to mix it up.
  • Put the pork chops into vacuum seal bags and then seal them shut with a vacuum sealer.
  • Pour hot water into a large container or stockpot, attach your sous vide cooker, then set the temperature to 140ºF.
  • Once the water comes to temperature drop the sealed pork chops into the water bath and cook them for 2-4 hours.
  • You can also drop the pork chops into the water right way as long as you cook your pork chops for at least an hour after the water reaches 140ºF.
  • After cooking, remove the pork chops from the bags and pat dry with a paper towel. This step helps the pork chops brown better when you sear them in the skillet.
  • Sprinkle a bit more seasoning on them if it seems like it got wiped off while patting them dry.
  • Drizzle olive oil into a cast iron skillet and turn the heat to medium-high.
  • Once the pan is hot and sizzling, sear the pork chops for 2-4 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned.
  • After browning them on both sides remove them from the heat and add a couple of tablespoons of apricot habanero jelly on top of each pork chop. It's a homemade jelly that I make and it pairs perfectly! It's the perfect touch of sweet and spicy to finish them off!
