Chocolate Spiced Pork Chops

Thank you, Paula Deen for yet another delicious recipe!  This is super easy, quick and amazingly delicious!   The spices are perfect for each other, complementing beautifully.  When you take a bite, it’s sweet at first, then the other spices kick in and it’s a symphony in your mouth.  Super yummy!  I served mine with mashed potatoes and lemon broccoli.  Enjoy!

-2 Tbs brown sugar
-1 Tbs Italian seasoning
-2 tsp onion powder
-1 1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
-1 tsp paprika
-1/2 tsp ground red pepper flakes
-1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp black pepper
-4 pork chops (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
-1 Tbs vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 350 F. 
In a large bowl, combine all the spices.  Rub the mixture evenly over pork chops.
Add the oil to an oven proof large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the pork chops and cook for about 3minutes on each side.  Put the skillet in preheated oven.  Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until chops are cooked through.  Enjoy!
