Do you ever get tired of the same ol’ dinners week after week. Different ways of serving chicken for dinner tend to be our go-to meals a couple of times each week, but mixing up our routine with thick pork chops makes our whole week feel fresh again! It’s such an easy recipe that feeds the whole family. I also really appreciate that it’s a lean meat and this recipe calls for simple ingredients I always have on hand.
We like to serve tender pork chops with a fruity side, like this 3-ingredient peach cobbler or homemade applesauce is always a winner! We love veggie side dishes, too, like green beans, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, or asparagus.
Easy Baked Pork Chops
How to Make Pork Chops:
You will start by combining your spice mix of garlic powder, mushrooms, kosher salt, black pepper, oregano, and thyme with a little bit of butter in a large skillet. You can substitute with olive oil, in a pinch, but butter really is best!
Pat your chops with paper towels so you have slightly dry pork chops to better absorb the flavor.
When the butter is melted, toss in your pork chops and sear each side of your chops for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. You want a good sear on each side.
That’s all the prep you will need!
Now, bake your 1-inch thick pork chops on a for 35 minutes or until they are cooked through in your preheated oven. If your skillet is oven safe, just stick the whole skillet pan right into the oven. Otherwise, transfer all your ingredients onto a baking dish or an oven safe pan.
We love this oven-safe skillet as it can be used up to a high temperature of 550 degrees Fahrenheit and is even freezer safe!
When they are done, be sure to check the internal temperature of the pork chops with a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the chop. Remove the skillet from the oven and go ahead and set your pork chops on their plates to give them time to rest while you finish making your sauce.
Whisk in flour and milk in with your seasoning/butter mix stirring until all lumps are removed. The final cooking time just needs a quick 3-4 minute simmer of the mixture. Serve your butter garlic sauce over the tops of your flavorful pork chops and enjoy!
One thing I love about this recipe is there is no dishes to clean up! No large bowl, piles of pans, excess kitchen tools – literally I cook it all right in the skillet from stove top to oven and back again for the roux.
