This is a really simple recipe you can make in 30 minutes, you can make this for yourself, for friends, or for a date with a special someone. 🙂

So let’s get down to it!

You’ll need the following:

Salt
Pepper
Paprika
Garlic Powder
Ground Mustard
Rosemary
Dill Weed
Onion Powder
Milk
Basil
Pork Chops
1 stick of Butter cut into two

If you’re missing a few spices, that’s okay, this recipe will work even with the absence of a few spices.

First off, make sure your pork chops are defrosted,   you want your chops to be at or near room temperature before you cook it. Also put paper towels on top and below the chops so it absorbs the moisture which will allow your spice rub to stick to your chops.

While your chops are releasing their excess moisture, now it’s time to prepare the spice rub!  Combine 1 tbsp Salt, 1 tbsp Pepper, 2 tbsp Paprika, 2 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Ground Mustard, 1 tsp Rosemary, 1 tsp Dill Weed, and 1 tsp Onion Powder in a small bowl.

Mix well and pat dry the chops then rub 2-3 pinches of the spice rub on each side of the pork chops. Use one hand to sprinkle the spice rub, and the other to rub the chops. Then once all chops are seasoned and rubbed, set aside remaining spice rub for future use.

In a heavy skillet over medium heat toss the butter in, once it’s all melted, start cooking the chops, about 5-8 minutes each side.

When the chops are done, remove them from the pan then set aside. Put the pan back on the fire and set it to low, add the remaining butter and a cup of milk, add freshly ground pepper and constantly stir until it’s all combined. If it’s too thick, add water little by little until it reaches your desired consistency. Then taste it to see if it needs seasoning. This is done in about 2-5 minutes.

Once the gravy is done, pour some on the chops and serve along with rice or mashed potatoes.

Enjoy!!
