Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Season pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
Add olive oil to an oven-safe, non-stick pan and heat pan on high until it's very hot (A drop of water on the pan should sizzle).
Place pork chops in pan and let them sear for 3 minutes (don't touch them at all!). Flip pork chops and sear other side for 3 minutes. Place whole pan in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
When pork chops are done, remove from pan onto a plate and tent the pork chops with aluminum foil. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving or cutting.
Make ahead: This meal is a great one to make in advance. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. To reheat, place pork chops in the oven at 375˚ for about 20 minutes.
