Mediterranean Pork-Chops (Cast-Iron)

“I combined two of my favorite seasonings with some pork-chops while on winter vacation from school. The timing and cooking technique with the skillet I learned for cooking steak. Ended up working great with pork-chops! I bought the Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt from Kroger. I'm sure your favorite seasoning will work just as well. **It’s important to try and use tongs or something of the sort to handle the pork-chops. Avoid penetrating in order to keep the juices inside.”
