    Rub pork chops with salt and pepper. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned on first side. Turn pork; reduce heat to medium, and continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink in center (at least 145°F). Transfer to plate, and cover with foil to keep warm.
