Print Recipe Pin recipe


  • 5 pork loin chops (bone-on) about 1½ inches thick
  • 1 tsp Hungarian paprika
  • 3 tbsps canola oil
  • Onion Jam


  • Heat a skillet large enough to hold the pork chops in a single layer. Season each chop on both sides with salt and pepper. Sprinkle with paprika. Pour oil in the skillet. When the oil begins to smoke lightly, remove the pan from the heat and gently arrange the pork chops in a single layer. Immediately return the skillet to the heat and brown on the first side, 2 to 3 minutes. Use a pair of tongs or a spatula to turn the chops on their second side. Brown about 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce the heat and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Turn the chops back to the first side and cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Season them again, lightly, with salt and pepper.
  • Remove the pork chops and place them on a serving platter. Top the pork chops with onion jam.
