Just playing around in the kitchen when a relative brought me back hot paprika from their trip to Spain —lkshanken

What You'll Need
  • 2 bone-in center cut pork chops, each about 1 inch think
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet or hot paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced thin
  1. Mix all dry spices together, and rub on to pork chops on both sides. Rub in well using your hands. Let the pork chops sit for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  2. In a large saute pan, heat oil for a minute on medium heat. Add sliced onion and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add wine, and cook one more minute.
  3. Move onions over to the side of the pan, and place pork chops in the pan, cooking 5 minutes, then turning, and cooking 5 minutes on the second side.
  4. Remove from heat, then cover the pan, as is, tightly with foil, and let sit for 5 minutes. Plate the pork chops, topping them with the onions, and serve.

I make this a lot! The spice mix works great on all cuts of pork chops. I have used it on thin boneless chops and cooked them in the oven. Sometimes I skip the onions, but it is best as written with thick cut bone in chops.

Tasty spice mix. Will need to adjust cooking time depending on thickness of chops.

This was so good and super easy. Loved the Spanish flavors and the wine onions. This is a keeper and will go into my routine. Thank you.

This was so good and super easy. I loved the spanish flavors and wine onions. This is now going to be a regular recipe for me! Thank you.

This is my go-to pork chop recipe. Easy and delicious. I was looking for a pork chop recipe that didn't dry them out and this one hit it out of the ball park.

Delicious, quick and easy. I doubled the spice mix as I had four boneless pork chops. I had to add a little extra white wine while the pork cooked. I served with creamy Parmesan polenta. The sour notes of the onions, worked perfectly with the meat and polenta textures and flavors.

These were really yummy! Very mild and smokey with the paprika. The onions were really tender and sweet.

These are so delicious. I threw them on the grill instead of on the stove (start high to sear on both sides and then turn down and cook for about 5 or 6 mins). And sautéed onions with apples on the side. YUM!

We loved this..made it tonight..added mushrooms as well. No wine, so added splash of cider vinegar and splash or wor. sauce. Next time I would add some cayenne--just for some heat, or use smoked paprika as well. cooked onions and mushrooms down to reduce moisture, otherwise, followed recipe, and added back mushroom and onion mix to top of chops before covering. served with sweet potato wedges and fresh broccoli. Just shared the recipe with my sister. Loved it!!

Made this with boneless pork chops (extra cooking time needed), with a side of saffron rice. Being sensitive to some types of heat, I was worried about the spice level on this - but the rub married beautifully and came out flavorful rather than hot. Will return to this recipe again, with bone-in chops next time!

Made this last night - the rub was delicious! Used a white onion instead of red and served it over egg noodles with some pretzel rolls. Yum!

I don't keep wine in my pantry, but I can certainly see trying this with our Honey Wine Vinegar...tender on the meat and sweet on the onions! I think I have some pork in the freezer at home that is calling me!

I added mushrooms to the onions and used boneless pork chops instead because it's what I had. This recipe was perfectly smoky, salty, and sweet from the onions. It also came together in such a short time and made our whole apartment smell divine! It was wonderful!

I actually tried this with only apple cider vinegar, not wine and used boneless pork instead of chops. Used lots of onions because I love them. Very tasty, and the vinegar helped tenderize the meat without leaving a vinegary taste, just spicy and tangy. Love the combination of flavours!

delicious-I added mushrooms with the onions and added a little apple cider vinegar and worcestershire with the wine.

I made this last night, the only change being to add a dash of cayenne to the rub. It was great. The onions were delicious and the pork was full of flavor. Will make it again.

Made this for dinner tonight and it is our new favorite pork recipe. So simple, quick, and delicious. The pork came out juicy and tender and the flavors were perfect. Even my picky little four year old son gobbled it up!
