This is a quick pork chop. This is a recipe I would make if I just needed something quick to make. It requires very few ingredients and is easy to make. The next time I make this I would probably season the chops first with a little salt and pepper before I put the rub over them. I think they needed just a little bit more flavor.
Glazed Pork Chops
Total Recipe cost: $6.55
Servings Per Recipe: 4
Cost per serving: $1.63
Prep time: 10 min. Cook time: 15 min. Total: 25 min.
|4 thick cut||pork chops (bone-in or boneless)||$5.97|
|1/4 cup||brown sugar||$0.12|
|1/2 tsp||cayenne powder||$0.05|
|1/2 tsp||garlic powder||$0.05|
|1/2 tsp||black pepper||$0.05|
STEP 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl combine the brown sugar and spices (salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika and garlic powder or whatever spice blend you like).
STEP 2: Remove the pork chops from their package and rub the brown sugar/spice mix all over both sides. Use all of the spice mix.
STEP 3: Heat 2 Tbsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium/high heat. When the oil is nice and hot (it will look wavy in the pan), add the pork chops. Cook the chops for about 5 minutes on each side or until they are nicely browned.
STEP 4: If you are using an oven safe skillet, place the skillet in the oven for an additional 5 minutes to make sure they are cooked through. If your skillet is not oven safe (most plastic handled skillets and teflon are not safe in the oven), transfer the chops to a baking sheet lined with foil then place in the oven.
STEP 5: Remove the chops from the oven and drag each side around in the thick glaze that has formed around the chops in the pan prior to serving.
Here are all the ingredients you will need to make this recipe minus the pork.
The first thing you want to do is mix up your rub using the brown sugar and spices.
The next thing you want to do is rub the brown sugar spice mix over both sides of your chops.
Cook your pork chops in olive oil over medium-medium high heat. You want them to be nicely browned, but not completely done.
When they are nicely browned on both sides put them in the oven for about 5 more minutes till completely done.
I served my chops with Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes. You will want to pour the pan drippings over the chops.
