Ingredients You Need

  • 4 Pork Chops
  • Salt (to taste)
  • 1 Tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Cup Low Sodium Chicken Stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon Honey or Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Parsley (chopped)

Steps You Take

  1. Season your refrigerated pork chops with salt and pepper. Set the pork chops aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Make your spice rub in a small bowl. Mix together the flour, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and smoked paprika.
  3. Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel. Rub both sides of the pork chops with your spice rub.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil gets hot and shimmery, add the meat.
  5. Cook the pork chops in the oil until they are golden. This should take 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flip the pork chops so they are seared side up. Reduce the heat to the low setting.
  7. Place the lid on top of the skillet and let the pork chops cook for 6-12 minutes.
  8. Move the pork chops to a plate and cover them with aluminum foil. Let the pork chops sit inside the foil for 5 minutes.

Making the Pan Sauce

  1. While the pork chops are sitting inside the aluminum foil, create your pan sauce!
  2. Increase the skillet heat to medium-high. Add chicken stock, vinegar, and honey or brown sugar.
  3. Use a wooden spoon to scrape up anything that sticks to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Remove the sauce from heat, and let it cool down until it is no longer simmering.
  5. Add in butter. Place the pork chops into the skillet and spoon sauce on top of them.
  6. Scatter parsley over the top of the pork chops before serving.
