Equipment

  • Meat Thermometer
  • Baking Sheet
  • Silicone Turner

Ingredients

  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon basil

Instructions

  • Allow pork chops to come to room temperature while following all food safety guidelines.
  • Preheat oven to 350° F and mix spices together,
  • Arrange pork chops on a single layer and season both sides.
  • Bake for 7 minutes and flip once. Check temperature with a digital meat thermometer. Bake for an additional 4 - 8 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145° F. Take out of oven and let rest for 3 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

  • Make sure the thermometer does not touch the bone
  • Make sure the thermometer is surrounded by meat on all side so it's not touching the pan or the air
  • Digital thermometers work MUCH better than instant-read thermometers that are cheaper and may not give an accurate reading
  • Pork chops cooked to 145º F are tender, juicy and easy to chew
  • Pork chops cooked to 145º F may have a BLUSH of pink in the center
