- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 4 pork chops boneless
- salt and pepper
Herb Butter Sauce
- 6 tbsp butter
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp fresh rosemary minced
- 1 ½ tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp kosher salt
In a small saucepot, melt the butter over low heat.
Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and whisk together; set aside.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Pat down both sides of the pork chops using a paper towel, making sure they are completely dry. Season liberally with salt and pepper.
In a cast iron or other oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until it is hot and starts to shimmer.
Add the pork chops to the pan and brown on both sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
Remove from heat, pour over the herb sauce, making sure all the pork chops get a good coating.
Move the pan to the oven and bake until they reach an internal temperature of 145F, about 12 minutes depending on thickness.
Let rest for 5 minutes, then remove to a plate and pour the remaining pan sauce over to garnish.
