  • 1
    tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil, extra virgin


  • Preheat oven to 375°.

  • In a small bowl mix together butter, thyme, and garlic. Set aside.
  • In a cast iron skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.

  • Place skillet in the oven and cook until cooked through. It’s about 10-12 minutes or until pork chops get the internal temperature of 145°F.
