Preheat the oven to 350°F. Rub down the chops with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, etc.
Heat up a skillet (cast iron, if possible) on medium-high with a little lard, oil, or butter. When ready, put chops on skillet for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned. Put the whole skillet in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest for 10 minutes. This is important to make the perfect pork chop!
