  • 2 - 4 Heritage Bone-In Thick Cut Pork Chops this recipe works with bone-in or boneless chops
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ teas Cumin
  • ½ teas Paprika
  • 6 tablespoon butter divided
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • Coarse grind black pepper
  • 4 tbs real maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 400.
  • Heat a large oven safe skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil when hot and swirl to coat pan.
  • Meanwhile, pat the pork chops dry. Season with salt, pepper, cumin, and paprika.
  • Sear 4 to 5 minutes, until a good crust forms. Flip and quickly add 3 tablespoon butter and garlic to the pan. Carefully, with an oven mitt, tilt the pan and spoon the melting butter garlic sauce over the chops.
  • Place in the oven and cook 5 to 7 minutes longer until an instant-read thermometer temps at 145.
  • Remove from heat, brush with a bit of the maple and grind a healthy portion of freshly ground black pepper over each cover with foil, and rest 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in the same pan, add the remaining maple and butter and stir, scraping up and browned bits. Simmer for a minute or two, just to mix everything together and serve as a pan sauce alongside the chops.
