Chef Tips

Use chicken, beef oven shrimp if you don’t want pork.


Step 1

Preheat oven fo 400F. Season chops all over with salt to taste. Mix all dry spices together, and rub on to pork chops on both sides. Rub in well using your hands. Let the pork chops sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.

Step 2

In a large sauté pan, heat oil for a minute on medium heat. Alternatively use a grill pan or grill; if using grill pan rub some oil on the chops. Add pork chops in the pan, cooking about 5 minutes on one side, then turning, and cooking 5 minutes on the second side.

Step 4

Remove from heat, then cover the pan, as is, tightly with foil, and let sit for 5 minutes. Plate the pork chops, topping them with the onions, and serve.
