Sometimes simple really is the best option, especially with a delicious center cut pork chop. All it needs is a simple spice rub and in about 15 minutes you have a delicious dinner. In terms of the pork chops, I opt for the boneless chops since they are lower in calories and fat, but bone-in would work as well. Bone-on chops tend to stay moister and have a bit more flavor.
