I love the flavors of cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic and onion seared in to a nice protein. Having the convenience of a pre-measured pack that creates the perfect meal every time is a bonus.

Setup your grill to 350° and place a cast iron pan inside to preheat (NOTE: If you do not want to use a grill for this recipe, it can easily be made on your stovetop). Once the pan is preheated, add some neutral oil with a high smoke point (e.g. Grape Seed oil) to the pan and place the chops inside. Add a knob of butter once cooking to add some additional flavor.

After 4 minutes flip the pork chops to the other side.

After the pork chops measure 140° internally, pull them and let them rest for 10 minutes. The carryover cooking will bring them up to a perfect 145°.
