5 min.

Total Time:

23 min.


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

  2. Season pork chops with salt and pepper

  3. Heat the cast iron on medium high for 3 minutes, so that it's hot.  Coat the bottom of the skillet evenly with a little olive oil

  4. Place pork chops in the skillet.  Cook each side for 2 - 3 minutes so that it's nicely seared.  Remove and set aside on a plate

  5. Using the same skillet, lower the heat to low and add butter, garlic, brown sugar, and red pepper (use as much as you like based on preference) and stir until the mixture is fully combined.  Let sauce simmer until it begins to thicken

  6. Add the pork chops back into the skillet, transfer it to the oven and bake for 8 minutes.  Remove the skillet from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes.  Sprinkle parley flakes and serve
