( most big name stores sell the these last 13 ingredients already mixed in two containers usually found in the seasoning section of the store.one is called "soul seasoning" and the other is "italian seasoning")I prefer mixing it myself but this saves time.
My cooking triumphs
1. preheat oven to 425 degrees F.In a 9-by-13-inch baking dish,combine tomatoes,mushrooms,garlic,and oil;season with salt and pepper.Toss with hands to evenly coat all, and move mixture to ides of pan.(leaving center free)
Mix last 13 ingredients together in a separate dish and add
2.1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper to those ingredients and sprinkle pork chops with this mixture,rubbing it in on both sides of the meat.Place pork in center of the pan containing the tomatoes,mushroom,and garlic you prepared before.
3.Roast in preheated oven until meat registers 160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer and mushrooms are tender,45 to 50 minutes.Remove from oven.
4. Serve pork immediatley and top with the tomatoes,garlic, and mushrooms as well as any pan juices.
