Difficulty: 3/5
Time: 25 minutes


Recipe by Foodtastic Mom


  • 4 bone-in pork chops 3/4 to 1 inch thick
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


Place oven rack in upper third position. Preheat oven to broiler setting (usually 500 degrees F).

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and place an oven safe cooling rack on top of the paper.

Mix together the dry rub ingredients – brown sugar through garlic powder. Evenly sprinkle the rub on both sides of the pork chops and rub it into the pork.

Place the pork on the cooling rack.

Cook the pork, flipping once halfway through cooking time. The size of the pork chops will determine how long you cook them.

Smaller chops should take 4-5 minutes per side, 3/4 inch chops should take 7-8 minutes per side, 1 inch or more chops should take 8-10 minutes per side.

Remove the pork from the oven once the center of each pork chop reaches 145 degrees F. Allow the pork chops to rest for 3 minutes before serving.
