    Excellent! I had thin sliced boneless chops. I adjusted cooking time to sear 1 min a side and 5 min. in 400 degree oven. I used garlic power, onion powder, sea salt and non stick cooking spray. Quick and easy and my kids liked them too. I will make these again w/ thicker chops. - 2/1/10

    I made these for my husband and I and we both loved them. They melted in our mouths!! The only seasoning I used was a little bit of sea salt and a sprinkle of onion powder because he isn't much for spices and still they were delicious. I'm making them again tonight. Thank you for sharing! - 11/17/08

    Very good recipe. I like to cover the pan and let them steam while resting. I think it makes them more tender and juicy. - 9/1/08

    I used boneless pork chops, about 1/2 inch thick and black pepper and Montreal steak seasoning for the spices. After searing both sides in an iron skillet, I baked them in oven for 7 minutes. I made a wine sauce by deglazing the pan with a little wine, smart balance, and fat-free half and half. Yum! - 1/12/10

    This was very simple and very good. I will make it again with different combinations of spices. My family isn't crazy about pork chops and I have a hard time cooking them correctly, but this made it really easy to get them done all the way through and keep them from being dry. Thanks! - 3/2/09

    I'm making this for the 2nd time. I'm using black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and dried parsley. Also, instead of coating with oil, I use nonstick olive oil spray and after searing, place the chops on a roasting rack over the skillet to drain grease. - 10/9/08

    I do this with chops all the time, I use olive oil in the pan though with 1/2 tablespoon of butter..plus I use fresh garlic, add it to hot butter and oil and cook it until it starts to turn golden brown then sear chops (seasoned with pepper/sea salt/onion powder) in garlic infused oil. - 1/11/13

    This is a classic restaurant method for cooking meats & nearly foolproof. I do one 2" bone-in chop, +/- 16oz (serves 2 w/leftovers for 2 lunches), 2t peanut oil (oo burns too easily), cracked black pepper, kosher/sea salt & granulated garlic & onion. It's always tender & our favorite pork dish. - 8/30/11

    I love making these. I put them in my toaster oven and save energy too. I use different spices everytime I make them and they always turn out great. - 2/28/09

    Simply, easy and our favorite way to make bone-in chops. Great with just a little salt and freshly ground black pepper and we also like a little ground sage sprinkled on them. - 9/1/08

    Sauce would be nice. I used garlic and onion powder. I would try something else. it wasn't too dry, but it wasn't juicy. It was just OK - 1/7/11

  • I used adobo, garlic powder and sazon. After cooling, I sliced the pork and put it in a Caesar salad so my family had pork Caesar salad! I also cooked hard boiled eggs and put them in the salad. It was good! Very quick and easy!! - 8/18/10

    This was good but I would enjoy my pork chop as much or batter simply grilled with my favorite spices. - 3/22/10

  • I have always made my pork chops like this. I sear them and put a lid over them to steam them, which helps make them extra tender. My boyfriend doesn't like pork chops that much but when I cook them he gobbles them up! - 1/24/10

  • I loved this easy way to fix pork chops, but splattered all over the oven!! I used a little pepper, salt, garlic and onion powder and they browned very nice. I will make again, probably will try covering them in the oven and see what happens. - 7/24/09
