There’s something to be said about a well cooked pork chop… not just any old pork chop, but one that is full of flavor and juicy. In the south, we like them just about any way they can be served, smothered, fried, grilled or baked. Personally, I love them roasted… I really do… one of my many love affairs. With just a few ingredients that you have in your pantry you can make this delicious peppery spicy rub which is a perfect pairing for the pork chops. Add your favorite sides or salad and you will have dinner in no time.
1/4 cup of Dijon mustard or spicy mustard
1 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried rosemary
4-6 pork loin chops. about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch thick
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In bowl, whisk together the mustard, garlic, oil, salt, black pepper, rosemary and thyme. Place chops in glass dish or roasting pan. Pour the rub mixture over the pork chops and spread. Let them stand for 30 minutes. Can let them marinate over night. Roast the pork chops in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until desired temperature is met.
