Quick & Easy Sweet & Savory Baked Pork Chops
This recipe is something I have been wanting to share with you all for a while. It’s my ‘go-to’ dish for pork chops, and it’s awesome, ya’ll.
And, so – so simple!
Not counting salt & pepper, this dish has just 5 ingredients – and only takes minutes to prep before finishing off in the oven. I created it when I was going to make another dish, and realized I didn’t have the ingredients to do. Happens to all of us right? This time though, it proved to be a good thing – and I ended up with a pork dish that my husband went on & on about how delicious it was.
It’s a little bit of sweet, a little bit of savory, and a whole lotta flavor.
And, I’m serious by how little time it takes to prep. Follow along with me – you’ll see.
Sprinkle some thin to medium cut pork chops with salt & pepper. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet, and add in the chops. Cook on medium-high heat until nicely browned on each side.
When browned, transfer the pork chops to a baking dish and sprinkle the top with steak seasoning (optional).
Stir the onions into the butter in the hot skillet. Stir in the brown sugar & Worcestershire sauce, cook on medium-high heat for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. The onion mixture will turn dark & lovely.
Pour this mixture over the pork chops.
Cover with tinfoil, & bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. The sauce doubles in the oven, so make sure you spoon every bit of extra sauce on the pork chops – and into cups to dip individual bites in.
Such a simple thing – but oh, so good.
