Coat both sides of chops with the spices.

In a very large skillet, heat the 1/4 cup oil until shimmering.

Add the chops and cook over moderate heat until browned and medium rare, 7 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, in a large, deep skillet, melt the butter.

Add the shallots and cook over moderate heat until softened and golden.

Add handfuls of the spinach to the skillet and cook over moderate heat, stirring and adding more spinach after each batch wilts.
