  • 4 boneless pork loin chops about 1-inch thick
  • 3 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large, 13x9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl combine the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder and brown sugar.
  • Lay pork chops in the prepared baking dish, side by side but not touching. Coat both sides of each chop with the olive oil.
  • Sprinkle half of the seasoning blend over the tops of the pork chops and rub into the meat with your hands. Repeat on the flip side of the meat.
  • Slide the dish into the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until pork registers 145 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
  • Tent with foil and let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.


If you're not getting that golden color you're looking for, broil the chops during the last several minutes.
Or, you could opt to sear the chops in a cast iron or stainless steel skillet with a little melted butter or olive oil. This will seal in the flavor and give you a nice golden crust. You will probably want to take several minutes off of the cooking time to account for the pre-cook.
