  • 2 tomahawk pork chops about 1/2 pound each
  • 2 tsp salt smoked salt is even better, if you have it!
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  • Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and coat on all sides with dry rub. Rest for 30 minutes.
  • Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and pre heat to 400°F (204°C).
  • Heat a large oven-safe skillet over high heat. Sear the meat on one side, about 3 minutes. Then flip the chop over and put the skillet in the oven.
  • Bake the pork chops for about 6-10 minutes. It’s best to have a probe thermometer inserted into the meat (not touching the bone). When the temperature reaches 135 degrees F, remove the chops.
  • Add a pat of butter on top of the meat and rest it for 10 minutes.
