Equipment You Will Need

For this recipe I used a 13 and a quarter inch cast iron skillet. I actually just bought it for Allen for our anniversary. Was that really a gift to him or myself…? Mine is Lodge brand, and you can find it below! A few other things I used were tongs to flip over my chops, and a small pot to cook my glaze in.
