Lay the pork chops out on a board or plate, and start by seasoning both sides generously with the salt. I like to start by seasoning with the salt so I can see how much I’m applying.
Next, mix together the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme, and rub this seasoning mix all over both sides of the pork chops.
Dredge both sides of the pork chops in the flour, then give them a good shake to get rid of the excess.
Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat, then add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan, usually about 2 tablespoons.
When the oil is hot and shimmering, pan-fry the pork chops in a single layer (you will probably need to do two batches), for about 3 minutes on each side, until golden brown. You can check with an instant read thermometer that they are at least 145 degrees F inside. Serve while hot!
