Pork Chops—stove top and baked featuring cumin and mustard— easy and delicious

This particular recipe serves 4 however it can just serve one or more than 4 if you have a very large skillet.

Ingredients:

  • 4 8-ounch thick pork chops
  • 1 Tsp. kosher salt
  • 4 Tsp. grainy Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tblsp. crushed cumin seed or ground cumin will do as well
  • 1 Tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tsp. canola oil and another generous tsp. or more for the iron skillet (or any skillet that can be used stove top as well as in the oven)

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • In a small bowl mix the salt, mustard, cumin, black pepper and 1 tsp. canola oil
  • Spread the mixture above on both sides of the pork chop
  • Stove top, heat the other Tsp. canola oil in the iron skillet
  • Put the pork chop(s) in the heated skillet and brown for 2 minutes on each side.
  • Put the skillet in the pre-heated oven and bake until the chops are just cooked through—about 12 minutes but it can be before, so watch carefully. You don’t want your chops to be tough.
  • There you go—easy and delicious.
  • Now, that you have the basic recipe, try to imagine other variations to spread on your chops and let me know what you like the best.
