Ingredients

  • 4 thick-cut boneless pork loin chops about 1-inch thick
  • 2 tbs olive oil

For the Rub:

  • 1 tbs chipotle chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder

Instructions

  • Mix all rub ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Sprinkle each side of the chops with the rub then rub in to distribute well.
  • Heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat; add the oil—the oil will smoke. (I use cast iron)
  • Add chops to the hot skillet and brown very well on each side, about 8 minutes each side.
  • This should cook the chops completely, but test with a meat thermometer to be sure. They should be 160 degrees internal temp. If not, they can be finished off in a 350 degree F oven for 10 minutes.
