I always buy pork chops or pork loin and never know what to do with them. I love breaded, pan fried pork chops, but it’s hard to pan fry them lately with a 2 year-old running into the kitchen every 5 minutes while I’m cooking hurling Hot Wheels cars across the floor. I mainly use this recipe as a dry rub for any kind of pork I prepare. Although this recipe is meant for baked pork chops, it’s also great on a pork loin in the Crock Pot for 8 hours on low. If you decide to use the slow cooker version, add around a cup of chicken broth to the Crock Pot.
- 4 boneless pork chops
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning or dried oregano
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
- In a small bowl, mix the dry rub ingredients.
- Rub the pork chops with the olive oil and season them with the dry rub. Make sure to coat all sides of the pork chops.
- Place the pork chops onto the prepared baking sheet.
- Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pork is thoroughly cooked.
- Remove from the oven and let rest 5 to 10 minutes, tented with aluminum foil. Serve and enjoy!
