Preheat oven to 375'.
Salt and pepper pork chops.
Allow to reach room temperature for even cooking.
Preheat oven safe skillet or pan on stove top.
Add oil to warm pan and let oil heat up.
Sear each side of pork chop
Remove pan from heat.
Add in glaze and coat all sides.
Cover with foil and place in oven.
Temperature check around 15 minutes for an internal temperature of 155' - 165'.
If desired temperature is reached, pull the pork out. If not, check every 2 - 3 minutes to avoid overcooking.
Use bone in the pork chop for flavor, but boneless will work as well. If spicy hot is not your thing, adjust raspberry preserves to 4 Tbsp and brown sugar to 1/2 cup. Also consider searing pork chops on the grill before putting them in the over for the visual appeal of grill marks.
