Great flavor and super quick!

I made these quite a while ago, and apparently forgot to review them. I had run out of thyme so I used poultry seasoning (since it has thyme in it). Even though I didn't have time to brine the chops, they still turned out well. A great last-minute option.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 center-cut pork loin chops, 1-1/2-thick
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme or 12 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed


  1. Trim fat from meat. Season chops lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the olive oil and thyme, and brush over all sides of pork chops. Place chops on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
  3. Roast thick chops, uncovered, in a 350 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until juices run clear. Or roast 3/4-inch-thick chops, uncovered, in a 375 degree F oven for 5 to 30 minutes or until juices run clear. Makes 6 servings.
