- 4 pork loin chops center cut, bone-in, 3/4 inch thick
- Kosher salt and ground black pepper
- 1 Tbsp fresh rosemary finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced or grated

Mix the melted butter, rosemary, and garlic together in a small bowl and set aside.
Season the pork chops on both sides with kosher salt and pepper.
Place a large cast iron or oven-safe skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. When the oil is shimmering, add the pork chops. Cook for 4 minutes or until golden brown on the first side, flip over and cook for an additional 4 minutes.
Use a pastry brush and brush the butter, garlic, rosemary mixture generously over the pork chops.
