Thank you, Paula Deen for yet another delicious recipe! This is super easy, quick and amazingly delicious! The spices are perfect for each other, complementing beautifully. When you take a bite, it's sweet at first, then the other spices kick in and it's a symphony in your mouth. Super yummy! I served mine with mashed potatoes and lemon broccoli. Enjoy!
-2 Tbs brown sugar
-1 Tbs Italian seasoning
-2 tsp onion powder
-1 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp paprika
-1/2 tsp ground red pepper flakes
-1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-4 pork chops (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
-1 Tbs vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, combine all the spices. Rub the mixture evenly over pork chops.
Add the oil to an oven proof large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook for about 3minutes on each side. Put the skillet in preheated oven. Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until chops are cooked through. Enjoy!
