  • 2 pork chops 1" thick
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter for stovetop cooking method


  • Set pork chops on the counter 30 minutes prior to cooking, but be sure to follow all food safety guidelines.
  • Mix brown sugar, rosemary and garlic salt.  Generously cover all sides of the pork chops with this mixture.
  • Get grill or skillet hot.  If using a skillet on the stove top add butter and then pork chops.  Flip after one minute so that each side is seared.
  • After about 3 to 4 minutes, when the chops are white halfway up the side, flip one last time.  Cook for 2 additional minutes.  Monitor closely and check the internal temperature with a digital meat thermometer.
    *If using a skillet keep a close eye that the sugar mixture doesn't burn.  Add butter before to the skillet before it burns if the mixture begins to look dark.
  • Let rest for three minutes before slicing to allow the juices to more evenly redistribute and maintain maximum juiciness!
