Turn your boring pork chops into a tasty dish with a little spice. Serve with a side of rice or potatoes with a drizzle of the sauce poured over the pork.
- 4 pork chops, at least 1” thick, bone-in or boneless
- 2 tsp BBQ Sweet Heat seasoning
- 1 Tbsp rubbed sage
- 1 tsp black pepper
- Salt to taste
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 3/4 cup half and half
- 3 Tbsp fresh sage leaves
- Mix together all the dry spices and salt. Taste. Add salt if needed.
- Sprinkle the rub on both sides of all 4 chops. Set aside.
- In a pan large enough to hold all 4 chops, melt butter and oil together. The butter should be hot, almost smoking.
- Place chops in the pan and brown for 2 minutes. Flip and brown the other side.
- Remove the chops from the pan. Leave the drippings and spices in the pan.
- Deglaze the pan by pouring the half and half and sage leaves into the pan.
- Reduce the sauce for 10-15 minutes until it’s a bit thicker than it started. Taste to see if it needs any salt or pepper.
- Add pork back to pan and cover.
- Cook covered on stove top for 5 minutes on low until the chops look cooked at the edges. Keep covered and remove from the heat. They will finish cooking while they rest.
- Serve with a drizzle of the sauce poured over the pork.
