  1. Place a large cast iron or heavy skillet in cold oven. Preheat oven to 400°F. For the glaze, place jelly in a small saucepan or microwave-safe container. Heat just until melted; remove from heat. Stir in vinegar, garlic, rosemary and cumin; set aside.
  2. Season chops with salt and pepper to taste. Remove skillet from oven. Add oil and chops; cook chops 45 seconds per side to sear. Return pan to oven; bake 10 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F. Remove pan from oven.
  3. Spoon glaze over chops and return to oven. Turn off oven; let chops stand in hot oven 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve.
