Baked Pork Chops

These baked pork chops are slathered in a homemade sauce and then baked very slowly. They are juicy, delicious and very easy to make.

Try and use a thick chop for this. If you are using thin ones you will need to adjust the cooking times a bit. Whatever you decide, you will have to make sure that the pork is completely cooked through before you eat it.

You will have quite a bit of sauce when you are done cooking these. You can make a gravy with it by adding a little flour or cornstarch to thicken it. I use it as is as it is super tasty.

Serve these with mashed potatoes or oven sweet potato fries if you would like.

Here is what you are going to need for these finger-licking-good baked pork chops:

Serves eight
8 pork chops about 1 inch thick
3 TBS yellow mustard
1 TBS mayonnaise
1 TBS honey
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. oregano
½ tsp. lemon zest
1 tsp. lemon juice

Heat your oven to 325 degrees. Rinse and pat dry the pork chops and place them in a baking dish.

In a bowl mix the mustard, mayo, honey, garlic powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, oregano, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix it well.

Generously slather the chops with your sauce on both sides. Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil and bake the chops for an hour and a half.

Remove the pork chops from the oven and uncover them. Increase the oven’s heat to 375 degrees F (180 C) and place the pan unto the oven, uncovered, for another 30 minutes.

Serve with your side of choice. These go beautifully with mashed potatoes.
