Fork-tender Oven-Baked Pork Chops



Just tasty tender pork chops here,
coated with a great dry rub. 




This is my go-to rub, a good blend of aromatic herbs and spices: Hungarian sweet paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, seasoned pepper and oregano.  It’s everyday ingredients most of us have on hand.





Depending upon whether they’re bone-in chops or boneless, and depending upon thickness, and oven temperature, the time for baking pork chops varies greatly.  


Oven-ready



A thickness of at least ¾" to 1½" is recommended for baking pork chops in the oven.  Check the thickest part of a chop every 10 or so minutes with an instant-read thermometer, until it reads about 145°.  

Baked pork chops is your basic foolproof dinner.  They’re easy to make and turn out tender, juicy and succulent every time using this baked pork chop recipe!  

They are truly delicious, fork-tender and pork chops!

  6. We eat quite a lot of pork, certainly the cheapest meat here in France. This looks delicious. We have spare ribs tonight but I have chops in the freezer so will use this recipe then. Thanks. Stay safe Diane

  8. I have one more package of pork chops in the freezer -- this sounds like a good way to cook them, though they may be too thin-cut. Because of the terrible conditions in the pork-packing plants, around half of them have shut down so far, and can't open up no matter what the government says, so I don't know what the situation will be when we need more. I feel bad for the workers.

    be well... mae at maefood.blogspot.com

    1. I agree, Mae! Too bad for the workers, and all the others too with not being able to work. Our governor will not let up, in lock-down until he sees the numbers go down or there's a vaccine. Just don't bake them for very long if they're thin-cut. 😉 Take care

  10. My MIL used to make the most tender pork chops and somehow I've never been able to duplicate that so I tend to use port tenderloin instead. I have to try your recipe!
