Featured Product: FoodSaver® FM5200 Vacuum Sealer


  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder
  • 4 bone-in pork chops, 6 to 8 oz. each
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into cubes


  1. Stir together salt, pepper, paprika, brown sugar, smoked paprika, thyme, oregano, onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and mustard powder; rub all over pork chops. Add 2 pork chops each to a FoodSaver Quart Vacuum Seal Precut Bag. Vacuum seal according to appliance guidelines.
  2. Fill cooking pot with water. Add sous vide machine; set to 160 degrees F. Lower vacuumed bag into heated water, weighing down to submerge, if necessary. Set timer to at least 45 minutes and up to 2 hours.
  3. Carefully remove bag from water; let stand for 5 minutes before opening and removing pork chops.
  4. Heat large heavy-bottom skillet set over medium-high heat; cook pork chops, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until browned and heated through. (Alternatively, preheat grill to high heat; grease grate well. Grill pork chops for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until well-marked and heated through.)


  • If not cooking pork chops right away, refrigerate or freeze (thaw in fridge before cooking)
  • Serve pork chops with salsa, ranch dressing, or tzatziki sauce if desired
