  1. Mix paprika, cumin, black pepper, cayenne pepper, sage, and garlic salt on a plate. Liberally coat each pork chop with the spice mixture.
  2. Heat olive oil and several pumps of non-stick, butter-flavored spray in a large skillet over high heat. Place pork chops in the skillet, reducing heat to medium. Cook until the pork is no longer pink in the center, 8 to 10 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

This certainly had some kick. After reading some of the other reviews I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I also used smoked paprika, but everything else followed the recipe. I cut my pork chops into cubes, threw them in a plastic bag with the spices and shook, then sauteed with EVOO. Served over couscous for a delicious meal!

I didn't really like this recipe at all. It just didn't taste good to me. I could taste the sage over powering it, and it was really not that spicy

very nice spice to this one. I have some leftovers that I'm going to use for tacos tomorrow. Followed the recipe exactly except I used real butter and evoo and I didn't have sage, BUT I think I would like it better without. I served it with home made apple sauce and a tossed green salad. Thanks for sharing.

I used thin pork chops, and I used a pat of butter with the olive oil instead of the butter spray. If I make them again, I will use way less sage (or none at all). It was overpowering. I will probably use a little more cayenne, too, but we like spicy food. This was not a hit with my kids, but my husband and I thought they were pretty good. I will probably fix them again sometime with a few changes.

I tried this recipe tonight and it was very good. My husband enjoyed it as well. I followed it exactly and did include the sage. I think the sage did add a great herb flavor. Very good!

Awesome recipe!!! I don't think I'll ever make pork chops another way again!!! I did add more paprika and family likes things spicy!!

Nice flavor. I cut the cayenne pepper in half because I was afraid it would be too spicy for us to eat and it came out pretty good. Just enough heat for me. I'll probably use garlic powder instead of garlic salt next time because it was a little saltier than I like. Good recipe and very quick and easy to put together.

This resipe is very easy to cook. I didn't use dried sage leaves, but it tastes good!
