Basil Pork Chops

Last week I took out pork chops for dinner.  Hubs offered to cook dinner, so I found him a  recipe to make.  Unfortunately, I didn't read the entire recipe and realize it took over an hour to make.  So I frantically searched for a quick recipe for him with good reviews.  Which brought me to the pan fried recipe found below. Hubs made it by the time I was out of the shower and it was pretty darn good.  He cooked it for only 7 minutes and it was a little well done.  He said he would cook it on a lower setting next time or for less time.  Overall...a dinner that is ready in 20 minutes is a 10 in my book! 

Basil Pork Chops

  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 (4 ounce) boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick


  1. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, basil, salt and chili powder. Gradually stir in 1 tablespoon oil until crumbly. Rub over both sides of pork chops.
  2. In a large skillet, cook pork in remaining oil over medium heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.


  1. AMAZING! After I grilled the chops I cut up 2 small apples and one small onion and threw them in the skillet with about half a cup of apple cider vinegar and made a chutney type thing to go with it. It was great and soaked in all the brown bits and flavor from the chops! This was a huge hit with my hubby.

  2. Very good. We love it!
