Oven Baked Pork Chops with Potatoes – RecipeTin Eats
One of my favorite pork chop recipes! These baked pork chops are a great way to cook pork chops in the oven. It is spread in a country-style sauce and then baked until caramelized on the outside and juicy on the inside.
So quick and easy to prepare, you can do this tonight!
Baked pork chop recipe I have no idea what to call the sauce I use for these pork
. I think it sounds nice to say “country style rubbing”, so that’s what I’m going with! (Although from a practical perspective, the ingredients are similar to the ones I use to make country-style ribs.)
It is salty with a touch of sweetness, balanced with a little acidity. Make your baked pork chops golden and sticky.
And I’m not kidding, I bet you have all the ingredients in your pantry to do this right now!
“This sauce is a secret weapon for making really tasty pork chops in the oven. Usually, baked pork chop recipes lack caramelization. With this sauce, your chops will come out golden and sticky!”

Frosting for pork chops So here’s what you need
for this magical pork
chop glaze . These are all pantry staples in my world, and I hope they’re in yours too!
I use pretty much the same ingredients for my favorite grilled sticky chicken recipes and also baked sticky chicken. It’s an excellent all-rounder!
No need to marinate! The sauce is loaded with flavor and you end up with juices on the tray to use as a sauce, so there’s a lot of flavor even without marinating.”
key to making really great pork chops in the oven is: the
right sauce, one that caramelizes well
Start in the oven; and
finish with under the grill for really cool caramelization. Otherwise, the pork cops come out of the oven without color, and we all know that caramelization = taste!
pork chops are as simple as this:
mix the country-style magic
on both sides and then bake for 15 minutes;
flip, spread with the remaining sauce and then grill/roast for 5 to 10 minutes until well cooked and beautifully caramelized. There will be enough juices on the tray to sprinkle and sprinkle on the serving chops.
How do you know when
pork chops are made?
When the internal temperature of pork chops is 145F/63C.
Optional – add potatoes! There’s room on the tray and I love the way the potatoes are crispy on top, and the bottom absorbs the flavor and ends up almost glazed.
See? Glazed potatoes.
And they taste even better than they seem!
I use this same sauce to roast and cook chops on the stove, but actually, my favorite way is to bake. There aren’t many sauces/rubs you can put on baked pork chops where they come out looking and tasting so good. They usually lack color and therefore flavor.
So this sauce (rub/glaze, whatever you want to call it) is made for baked pork chops.
For a really quick salad, try a Rocket Parmesan salad, pictured above. Simply take a handful of arugula lettuce (arugula), mix with balsamic dressing and garnish with parmesan shavings. Some other easy green options that I think would go very well are German cucumber salad, magic broccoli, white bean tabbouleh, or garlic-sautéed spinach. – Nagi x
