A simple, yet tasty pork chop. Serve with your favorite side dish and veggies.
Thick Cut Pork Chops (boneless).
Your Favorite Spicy Rub.
Thick Cut Sweet Smoked Bacon (Maple/Apple).
Tooth picks(soaked in water).
Rub the pork chops with your favorite spice rub (I use a smokey chipotle rub) on both sides (use rub sparingly), slightly pierce meat with a fork. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap for no less than an hour. Place in fridge. After an hour or so, take chops out, set aside to take the chill off.
Preheat oven to 425 (F). Once the oven is at correct temperature, unwrap chops, and wrap with bacon, lightly sprinkle with rub, securing bacon with tooth picks:
Place chops on an ungreased teflon 15x10x1 baking pan, or foil line one that is not teflon coated (again, no grease/oil/oil spray).
Depending on the thickness of your chops and your oven, cooking time can vary between 15-25 minutes. I advise checking them periodically so that the bacon does not burn or that the chops do not dry out.
