1
Preheat your oven to 400°F.
2
Pat your pork chops dry with a paper towel. Season both sides with salt and black pepper to taste.
3
Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
4
When the pan gets hot, add the pork chops and sear for 4 minutes on one side, then flip and brown the other side for 3 minutes.
5
In a small bowl, combine the light brown sugar, minced garlic, red chili pepper flakes, paprika, and dried thyme.
6
Reduce the heat on the skillet to medium-low and push the pork chops to one side. Add unsalted butter to the skillet in the empty space and let it melt. Add the sugar mixture to the melted butter and stir until combined.
7
Spoon glaze over the pork chops to coat them evenly, then transfer the skillet to the preheated oven.
8
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature of the pork chops reaches 145°F.
9
Remove from the oven, serve immediately, and spoon any remaining glaze in the pan over the top of each pork chop.
