Southern Barbecue-Rubbed Pork Chops
Serve these chops up with some sweet tea and corn bread and don't be surprised to hear the family hollering, "Hoooo-weeee!" at the dinner table. Yes, they're that good.
- ¼ cup barbecue seasoning dried spice mix, divided
- 4 (6-oz) bone-in center-cut loin pork chops, about ½-inch thick
- cooking spray
- Rub 1 tablespoon of barbecue seasoning on both sides of each pork chop.
- Place a large non-stick skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat, and spray generously with cooking spray.
- Add pork chops and cook for 2 minutes on each side. Reduce heat to medium, cover pan, and cook for 8 minutes or until cooked thoroughly, turning halfway through cooking time.
- Remove from pan and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
- Check out the dried spice section at your market for flavor inspiration. Try mesquite or Cajun seasonings or any other dried spice mix that suits your fancy. You can also create your own with a mixture of your fave dried spices.
- For a truly Southern-inspired meal, serve the chops with some buttered grits and steamed collard greens.
