25-minute Broiled Pork Chops are an easy and simple weeknight dinner! Pair it with steamed veggies and mac and cheese for a classic weeknight dinner.
These pork loin chops are seasoned with a homemade spicy BBQ rub. There is an option not to make it spicy in the recipe card. After they are seasoned, we broil them in the oven for about 15 minutes.

Boneless Pork Chops: Pork chops are cheap and easy to find.
Light Brown Sugar: Adds a slight sweetness to pork chops for a sweet BBQ flavor.
Salt: Brings out the flavors of the seasoning and the meat.
Chili Powder: Part of BBQ dry rub.
Black Pepper: Part of BBQ dry rub.
Smoked Paprika: I love using smoked paprika to give it a slightly smoky flavor, but regular paprika works!
Garlic Powder: Part of BBQ dry rub.
Chipotle Powder: Totally optional. A little goes a long way in adding spice to the pork chops.
Olive Oil: Helps to keep the pork chops moist while cooking.
🔪 How to Make Pork Chops in the Oven
1. Make Dry Rub: Mix the ingredients for the BBQ rub together.
2. Season Pork Chop: Completly cover the pork chop in the rub. Place them on the baking sheet and drizzle them with olive oil. Don't season the chops on the baking sheet. Loose brown sugar will burn in the oven.
3. Broil: Broil for 7 minutes, then flip and cook for another 6-8 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 145F.
4. Rest: Remove the pork from the oven once the center of each pork chop reaches 145F. Allow the pork chops to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Use chipotle powder in the BBQ rub to give the pork chops a little spice, or leave it out for a traditional BBQ flavor.
🥡 How to Store
Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Pork chops are a very lean cut of meat and can be overcooked easily. Use a meat thermometer to check the pork chops after 13-14 minutes in the oven. Pork should be cooked to a minimum temperature of 145F. Smaller chops will take less time!
