Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle pork chops evenly with salt and the paprika mixture on all sides (they will be heavily coated). 

  • Heat a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add the pork chops and cook until golden brown on 1 side, about 2 minutes. 

  • Meanwhile, whisk broth and mustard together in a small bowl.

  • Flip the pork chops and immediately pour the broth mixture in the center of the pan, making sure not to pour it over the chops. Transfer to the oven; bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest portion registers 145°F, about 9 minutes. Remove from oven; let rest for 5 minutes. Place 1 pork chop on each of 4 plates. Top each with 1 tablespoon pan sauce. Serve the remaining sauce alongside.
