Season each of the pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper on both sides.
When ready to cook, preheat the oven to 450° F and heat a large cast-iron skillet over mid-high heat. Allow the skillet to heat up while you get the ingredients ready for the herb butter sauce. Chop the shallots and herbs, measure the wine and set aside.
When the skillet is hot, add 2 tablespoons butter. Add the pork chops and sear quickly. Because there is sugar on the pork chops and we are working with a pretty hot pan, the pork chops will sear quickly, so keep an eye on them.
When the pork reaches 150°F, remove it from the skillet to a cutting board to rest for at least 10 minutes. While the pork is resting, work on the herb butter sauce.
