Ingredients

  • 4 bone in pork chops
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
  • Season the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the pork chops to the pan in a single layer. Cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until browned.

  • Place the pan in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until pork is cooked to desired level of done-ness.
  • Spoon the sauce from the bottom of the pan over the pork chops and sprinkle with parsley. Serve, garnished with lemon wedges and parsley sprigs if desired.

Notes

  1. If you don't have Italian seasoning, you can substitute equal parts of dried oregano, dried basil and dried thyme.
