Seasoned Garlic Butter Pork Chops

Pork Chops browned in a skillet, basted in a seasoned garlic butter then baked in the oven.

Salt and pepper both

sides of the pork chops.

In a small bowl, melt the butter in the

microwave. Add the rosemary, paprika

and garlic powder then stir and set aside.

Add the oil to a cast iron skillet (or any

skillet) and heat over medium heat until

hot. Cook the pork chops on both sides

just until lightly brown. If you are not

using a cast iron skillet, transfer the

meat to a baking dish.

Spoon the butter mixture

on top of the pork chops.

Bake at 375º, uncovered, until the thickest

part of the pork chop is 145º then serve.

  1. Everything tastes better with garlic butter! Looks so tasty and I do love a good porkchop. Have you finished drying all the herbs from your garden harvest this year?

  2. Looks so good. And easy, too. Next shopping trip, I am buying some pork chops. I have a cast iron pan, and it’s getting colder. Good time to turn on the oven. Thanks!

  3. That makes sense. I don’t have an issues with figuring out the “main” part of our meals (like meat!) but I often fall down around veggies and something else. Sigh. I am working on it, though!
