  • Mix paprika, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper together in a wide, shallow bowl. Dredge pork chops in the spice mixture to coat and arrange on a baking sheet.

  • Bake chops in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

This is a nice basic rub that I think could be used on most any type of meat. Since I was trying this for the first time, I just made a small amount using 1/4 t. of cayenne and 1/2 t. of each of the other ingredients, which amounted to cutting the paprika and sugar in half. I used the entire batch of rub on a one pound pork tenderloin. Rather than bake this, Hubs grilled it. It was great! I’ll make a larger batch and keep it on hand in the pantry. UPDATE 4/17/16: I made this again as before, but this time it seemed pretty spicy to Hubs and me. Next time I will cut the cayenne down to 1/8 t. for this small batch. Read More

I made this and my family loved it. It has a little kick which was fine for my husband and me. Even my 13 yr old said she'd eat it again. I used boneless pork chops and just kept an eye on them as it (or my oven/or both) altered the baking time slightly. Also I had quite a bit of the rub left over. Read More

I cut this down to two pork chops and then used only 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne (preference for my husband). I'm not used to baking pork chops (I usually grill them) and I did let them get a touch overdone. Be sure to use a reliable thermometer to make sure you get them to no more than 145 degrees! You will have leftover rub to store for another time and I'm thinking that the rub will be good on almost any sort of meat (chicken or beef come to mind). I will grill these next time and use the rub on both sides. I would definitely use this rub again! Yum! Thanks Ron Perry! Read More

This rub is fantastic and I agree with BellePepper it seems this would be good on any type of meat I'm thinking salmon in particular. I cut down on the cayenne because of the kids but other than that I left everything the same. It was the right amount for 5 bone-in pork chops. And the cooking time was spot on the chops were tender.

Tasted amazing! Awesome recipe! Just a couple notes: -only use 1/4 tsp of Cayenne if you don't want it to be too spicy - make sure to bake in over with aluminum foil covering it for 20 min - after removing from oven let it rest for 10 minutes covered for the best results Read More

Really good. Be sure to use thick chops about 1.25. Necessary for such high heat. Foil on pan helped with clean up and a light coat of olive oil kept things moist. Leftovers sautéed in low tasted wonderful for lunch next day - spices toned down a bit. Read More
