The pork chops are seasoned with a delightful mix of herbs and spices that draw out the natural sweetness and mouth-watering umami flavor of the meat.

Here are the ingredients you'll need: olive oil (or your preferred oil), bone-in pork loin chops, salt and pepper, onion powder, paprika, dried oregano, dried thyme, butter, fresh garlic, and fresh parsley for garnish. Be sure to use bone-in pork loin chops for the best results, although rib chops or center-cut chops would also work. Avoid sirloin, shoulder, or blade chops – save those for slow-cooking dishes.

The baking process is super simple. Preheat your oven to 375˚F, then sear both sides of the pork chops in a skillet over medium-high heat for around 3 minutes per side. While they're searing, mix melted butter with minced or pressed garlic in a separate bowl. Once the chops are seared, delicately coat them in the garlic butter sauce and bake for another 12 to 15 minutes. Remember to baste the chops with the butter sauce halfway through the baking. When the chops are done, let them rest for 5 minutes on a serving plate before garnishing and serving.

As for cooking time, it may vary depending on your oven's temperature and the thickness of your pork chops. But since we're pre-searing them, they'll need slightly less time in the oven. In general, aim for around 5 to 6 minutes for searing, and 12 to 15 minutes for baking at 375˚F.

In just 12 minutes, my newly purchased oven cooked my pork chops to perfection.

For optimal results and to ensure your pork chops are thoroughly cooked, I recommend using a meat thermometer. The thermometer should register a temperature of 145˚F when inserted into the pork chop, but not touching the bone. However, some thin pork chops may not allow for the thermometer to be fully inserted for an accurate reading. In this scenario, there are other methods to check for doneness. The chops should be firm to the touch, not soft or mushy. When cut into, the meat should appear white or have a slight pink hue - avoid dark pink or medium pink meat. Lastly, check that the juices of the pork chop run clear.

Dry pork chops are no fun. Thankfully, I have some tips to ensure that your pork chops remain moist and juicy:

    Brining: Take 30 minutes to brine your pork chops prior to cooking. Add a few tablespoons of salt to a quart of water and soak the pork chops. To add extra flavor, consider adding herbs, cracked black pepper, or lemon slices.

    Resting: Wait 5 to 8 minutes before cutting into your freshly baked pork chops. This brief resting period allows the juices to redistribute and can help to maintain moisture.

    Thick vs. Thin Chops: Opt for one-inch thick pork chops. Thin pork chops are prone to drying out when cooked.

    Pan Size: Choose a baking dish tailored to the size of the pork chops. Too much space in the pan can lead to dryness.

    Now that you have delicious pork chops, it's time to add some savory sides to the meal.

    Roasted Veggies: Roast Brussels sprouts and carrots in brown butter for a deep, nutty flavor.

    Colorful Salad: Try a chickpea salad, featuring mild chickpeas and creamy feta.

    Pasta: A creamy lemon one-pot pasta is a delectable option with pork chops.

    To make the most of leftovers, store them in airtight containers or food storage bags in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. To reheat, add a tablespoon or two of juices or water to a covered skillet with the pork chops over low heat until they reach a safe internal temperature of 145˚F. You can also freeze the pork chops in freezer bags for up to three months. Thaw overnight before reheating.

    Enjoy your perfectly cooked and delicious pork chops!

    Begin by heating up some olive oil in a 12-inch skillet that is safe to be used in the oven, ideally a cast iron skillet, placed over medium-high heat. Make sure to pat the pork chops dry with paper towels and season them with salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, oregano, and thyme. Proceed to sear the pork chops for about 3 minutes per side, or until they turn brown. It is important not to overcrowd the skillet with the pork chops while browning them; if the skillet is too small, brown them in batches.

    Whilst waiting for the pork chops to brown, mix some melted butter and garlic in a bowl. Once the pork chops have browned, remove the skillet from the heat and pour the garlic butter sauce over them. Cook the pork chops in the oven for about 12 to 15 minutes, or until they are cooked through, and the internal temperature reaches 145˚F. Please note that the cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the pork chops. Halfway through cooking, baste the pork chops with the butter sauce. Once done, remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the pork chops onto a serving plate. Let them rest for around 5 minutes before cutting the meat. To finish, spoon the butter sauce over the pork chops, garnish with parsley, and serve.
