Combine the oregano, parsley, saffron & garlic and press into both sides of pork chops. Wrap 4 slices of Manchego cheese into one of the slices of Jamón Serrano and stuff into the pocket of the pork chop. Repeat with remaining pork chop.

Turn the pork chops over and sear for one minute of the second side. Then place the cast iron skillet in the heated oven and roast pork chops for 6 minutes. Turn pork chops over and place back in the oven for 4 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cover with aluminum foil. Allow to rest for a few minutes to redistribute the juices. This is great served with Sautéed Skillet Potatoes and a salad. Enjoy!
