Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Trim fat from chops. Pat chops dry with paper towels. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper.
In a very large skillet heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add 2 bone-in chops or all of the boneless chops. Cook about 6 minutes or until browned, turning to brown evenly. Transfer chops to a 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Repeat with remaining chops if necessary.
