Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix salt, Italian seasoning, black pepper, chili powder, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder together in a bowl. Sprinkle spice mixture generously on both sides of pork chops.

  • 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

It's a little light on the spices. Will bump them up next time. I didn't listen to the reviewer who said, go easy on the lime. I didn't, I should have! I used a very think chop, so popped in the oven for 5 minutes. It's a good recipe. I'll tweak it and make it again. 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

Using all listed seasonings (except salt) plus Old Bay, minced garlic, tumeric, and to the mix. I don't measure so can't help with the amounts. Followed STEP 1 & 2 using an iron skillet. Then, placed chops in the crockpot on high with tablespoonfuls of drippings and lime juice on top of each. My STEP 3 included adding to skillet: a package of onion soup, tumeric, Greek seasoning, and 2c wild rice to the iron skillet, mixed together, browned (stirring occasionally) on medium heat apprx 5 minutes. Added, sweet peas (leftovers from fridge so this will be optional next time) and 4c water. Bring to boil, cover, cook until liquid is absorbed. STEP 4--Remove chops; pour rice mixture and 1c water into crockpot; cover; reduce heat to warm until suppertime. Read More
