  • 4 1 - 1 1/2" boneless pork chops trimmed of excess fat
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Combine the cumin, coriander, garlic powder, chopped rosemary and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a small bowl. Rub the mixture on all sides of the pork chops.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a cast iron skillet or oven proof sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the pork chops and sear for 2 minutes on each side, or until a nice golden brown crust has formed. Remove from heat.
  • Place the skillet into the oven and bake for 8-15 minutes, or until an internal thermometer into the thickest part of the pork chop registers 145 degrees.
  • Remove from heat, cover loosely with foil and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!


  • You can skip pan searing the pork chops if you wish, but your chops won't have the crispy, golden brown crust.  If you do skip this step, bake for 15-18 minutes total until an instant read thermometer registers 145 degrees.
  • Be sure to cook the pork chops in a skillet or dish that's just big enough for them.  The ensures that they'll cook in their juices, which makes for a nice tender pork chop.  Be sure and pour those juices over the chops just before serving!
  • My pork chops were 1 1/2" thick and they took 18 minutes total time to cook.
  • If using bone-in pork chops, cooking time will be longer.
  • You may have some rub leftover. Store in an air tight container and use within 3 months.
