Pork Chop Seasoning – a simple pork chop seasoning using basic spices. Great for pork cooked in the oven, grilled, on the stove top or just about any way you can think of!

We love pork in this house. It can be Smoked Pork Butt or just a simple Oven Baked Pork Chop. But pork is a staple in our week. So having something on hand that is versatile and can go on pretty much any cut of pork and cook it in any way, just makes the week easier and tastier!

This spice mixture is super easy to make, it takes just 2 minutes to throw together, and you can have it on hand for pretty much ever. Plus it is good on chicken or anything else is well, not just pork chops!

What Seasoning Goes On Pork Chops

You really can season pork chops with just salt and pepper and make them really basic. But this spice blend is the perfect savory mix that gives pork even more flavor. It isn’t spice rub that you would use on ribs or something like that, it has dried herbs and garlic that work really well together.

This pork chops seasoning takes about 2 minutes to throw together and uses spices that I am guessing you have on hand already. You can make a small batch of this or you can double or trip and just have on hand at all times for quick and easy dinners any time.

How To Season Pork Chops

This is a super simple spice mixture that goes well on just about any cut of pork. If you are making pork chops, you need about 1 Tablespoon of seasoning for 4 pork chops. Just sprinkle on each side of the pork chops and then cook your desired method.

This is a very versatile seasoning, not a barbecue or grill centered spice mixture. These Grilled Pork Chops have more of that flare, if that is what you are looking for. But this spice mixture works great on the grill or you can cook them in a little oil in the skillet. Or just throw them in the oven. You can even use them on Sous Vide Pork Chops.

How To Store Seasoning

This pork chop seasoning will last for about a year in your pantry. It is just dried spices that are combined, so store in an airtight container. Spices tend to start to lose their flavor after about a year, so it won’t go bad after that time, it just won’t have as much flavor.

Is This Gluten Free

Yes, this is a naturally gluten-free seasoning. So it is great to make for a crowd if you aren’t sure what peoples dietary restrictions are.

Can I Make This Salt Free?

This is not a salt-free seasoning mix, but you can reduce it if you are watching your sodium. It is probably about 1/2 teaspoon per pork chop of salt once you mix everything together. So it isn’t a lot, but if you need to cut back you can reduce it.

Seasoning Storage

You really just need any airtight container to store your spice mixture in. If you have a little ball jar, you can use those. If you just have a small tupperware container that works too. My favorite is to save spice jars, and then use those. Just remove the label, and you can use them for all sorts of different seasoning blends.

And if you like making your own spice blends, here are a few of my favorite!
