  • Heat butter and olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Cook pork until no longer pink in the center and golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer pork chops to a serving plate, reserving juices in the skillet.

  • Add lime juice and garlic powder to the same skillet and mix into leftover juices. Stir to combine and pour over the pork chops.

Made it, loved it! I used super thick pork chops (1 1/4 in. thick) so i put them in the oven to finish. They were delicious. I used a little less chili powder because we are wimps. Easy and yummy! Read More

These were real good quick and easy to make. The lime garlic sauce really brightened the meat nicely turning a boring chop into a very tasty dish. The only thing I might do different is use a bit more chili powder for a just a little more pop! Read More

These turned out great! I am picky about my chops and the ones I had were thick so I chose to grill them and just finish with the butter and lime. This rub would go great with chicken too. Read More

With thin cut chops there is more surface area so I used 1 tsp seasoned salt and 1/4 cup lime juice and doubled all the other spices. I put the spices and chops in a bag and shook them up to cover. I also subbed Padilla chili for the chili powder and I added about a half tsp cayenne. Terrific! Read More
