1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 pork rib chops (¾ inch thick)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1 lemon, cut into 6 wedges


Mix together the salt, paprika, and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the spice mix on all sides of the chops. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chops for 3 minutes per side. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook until the inside is just pink and the juices run clear when a chop is pricked with a fork, about 10 minutes; turn the chops once in this time. Serve with Mushroom Sauce, Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes, the lemon wedges, and sliced romaine, if desired.
