Garlic & Herb Pork Chops

Ingredients Needed:

Pork Chops: We are using thick, center cut pork chops that we sliced ourselves from a pork loin. Bone- in pork chops work for this recipe too but may take a bit longer to cook.

Olive Oil: Adds moisture to the lean pork chops and helps the rub stick to the pork. 

Garlic and Herb Rub: Brown Sugar, Granulated Garlic, Onion Powder, Ground Rosemary, Dried Thyme, Dried Basil, Smoked Paprika, Kosher Salt, Pepper, Dry Mustard.

Pork chops tend to dry out over long cooking periods and are easy to dry out. Using olive oil and cooking over medium- high heat over a shorter time will help keep the pork chops juicy. Cook pork chops to about 140°, using a digital thermometer. Allow pork chops to rest before slicing.
