Here is one very simple pork chop recipe that is perfect for a quick weeknight meal. These are so juicy and flavorful you just may want to add this to your weekly meal choice. I like to marinate the chops the night before cooking for a flavorful meat you will start these on the stove and finish in the oven

Ingredients:

  • 4 –  1″ Thick Bone-In Pork Chops (you can use boneless the cooking time will differ, look at the bottom of the page for the cooking times)
  • 4 TBSP of Butter (not margarine)
  • 2 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 TBSP of Crushed Garlic
  • 1 tsp of Minced Onion Flakes
  • 1 TBSP of Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp of Salt
  • 1 tsp of Rosemary
  • 2 tsp of Smoked Paprika
  • Garlic Butter (2 TBSP of Butter, 2 tsp of Crushed Garlic, 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning, mix together in a bowl and set aside)

Directions:

  1. In a bowl combine the crushed garlic, minced onion flakes, black pepper, salt and paprika
  2. Pour the seasonings over the pork chops and use your hands to spread the coating evenly both the front and backs of the pork chops
  3. Place into the fridge covered, if marinating until ready to cook
  4. When ready to cook, preheat your oven to 450*
  5. Add your 4 TBSP of Butter and 2 TBSP of olive oil to frying pan, with the heat on high (I use a cast iron pan with grill grates)
  6. When the butter is melted, add your pork chops to the hot frying pan and cook for 4 minutes to sear the meat and brown it
  7. Flip and continue cooking for another 4 minutes to sear the other side
  8. Remove from pan and place into a baking dish
  9. Put into preheated oven and bake for 15-20 more minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted in the center half way through reads 145*
  10. Remove the pork chops and plate them adding 1/2 TBSP of the garlic butter mixture on top of the hot pork chops

 

*** For boneless pork chops 1 inch thick, sear for 2 minutes per side on high heat and remove to oven safe pan, cook for about an additional 12-18 minutes or until a thermometer inserted reads 145*
