  • 3 bone-in pork chops
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt

Spice Blend:

  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp cumin powder
  • ½ tsp ground paprika
  • 1 tbsp grain dijon mustard
  • tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp canola oil


  • In a small bowl, combine black pepper, cumin, paprika, grain dijon mustard, brown sugar, and 1 tsp of oil. Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Rinse the pork in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
    Season both sides of pork chops with salt and a pinch of black pepper.
  • In a large cast-iron skillet, heat 1 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat. When it's hot, cook the pork chops for about 2 minutes per side. Turn off the heat.
  • Brush both sides of pork chops with spice blend. Transfer the skillet to the oven, cook for 6-10 minutes or longer depending on the thickness, until the internal temperature reaches 140°F.
  • Transfer the meat to a platter or cutting board. Cover the meat loosely with foil. Let it rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting/serving. The residual heat will bring it to the USDA's recommended safe minimum temperature 145°F.


Cast-iron skillet: Use the right size of skillet. If the skillet is too large, the juices will dry out in the oven.
How to store the leftover: Properly stored, the leftover cooked chicken can last 3-4 days in the refrigerator or up to 6 months in the freezer.
