Ingredients

  • 6 pork loin pork chops (cut 1 inch thick)
  • 1/2 tsp vegetable oil

Pork chop dry seasoningn mix

  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/4 tsp ground sage
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumun
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme (crushed)

For the browned garlic butter

  • 6 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic (pressed)
  • 1 tsp fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. I recommend browning three pork chops at a time as browning them all at the same time causes overcrowding and poor browning.
  • Transfer the chops to a baking sheet lined with foil and let rest for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine all of the dry seasoning mix ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.

  • Sprinkle with the dry seasoning mix on both sides and rub into the meat with your fingertips.

  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature of the meat reaches 145F. Remove from the oven.

  • Transfer the pork chops to a warm serving platter, cover loosely with a piece of foil and let rest.
  • In the meantime, heat butter in a small saucepan until melted. Add the garlic and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes, or until the foam just starts to turn brown. Stir in parsley, hot sauce, lemon juice and black pepper. Cook until the sauce is lightly browned.

  • Take off the heat and immediately drizzle over the pork chops and serve.
