2 Bone-in thick pork chops, about 1 inch thick

3 tbsp garlic minced

2 tbsp vegetable oil

4 tbsp butter

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

3 tbsp brown sugar

salt and pepper

fresh parsley chopped


Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.

Step 2: Season with salt and pepper the pork chops.

Step 3: Place an oven-safe skillet on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.

Step 4: Add oil and allow it to become hot.

Step 5: Add pork chops and sear each side for about 3 minutes or until brown. Remove from the skillet and place them on a clean plate, then set aside.

Step 6: Add the butter to the same skillet and allow it to melt. Make sure to reduce the heat to low as well.

Step 7: Add the garlic, red pepper, and sugar. Stir until well mixed.

Step 8: Simmer the mixture for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 9: Put the pork chops back to the skillet and toss until well coated with the sauce, then cover the skillet.

Step 10: Remove the skillet from the heat and place it inside the preheated oven. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the pork chops reads 145 degrees F.

Step 11: Remove from the oven and allow the pork chops to sit at room temperature to cool for at least 5 minutes.

Step 12: Sprinkle freshly chopped parsley on top.

Step 13: Serve and enjoy!
