Baked Pork Chops

Another one of mom’s favs! Takes some time to put together and bake, but still on the easy side of the scale. Start with your basic pork chops. Thick or thin, doesn’t matter. I do, however, recommend bone on. It has a better flavor.

Baked Pork Chops

Ingredients

  • Oil (for frying – I use olive oil)
  • Flour (for dredging)
  • Seasoning (I use a local specialty mix, Barnyard seasoning)
  • Pork broth, if available (Chicken broth, otherwise)
  • Bone-in pork chops
  • Chopped onion (these are dehydrated - instructions say to rehydrate before using - I don't)

Directions

Season liberally with your favorite BBQ-style seasoning, dry rub, or what have you.

Dredge lightly in flour.

Saute lightly on both sides. We’re not worried about cooking them through at this point. They are going to be baked.

Saute in batches if necessary. If you’re making more than 3, it will be necessary. Cover the bottom of the baking pan with the chopped onion. Place the sauteed chops in a casserole. This is one of my favorites. Its 9 x 9 but 6 inches deep. Room for lots of chops. Add liquid. Pork broth is best (not ham broth). If you can’t find pork broth (its not always easy), use chicken broth and maybe a little white wine. You can add a little white wine with the pork broth, too. Dealer’s choice.

Add more chopped onions over the top and around the sides. The extra flavor is wonderful. Cover (I use foil) and bake at 350 F for about 1 1/2 hours or until fork tender. They will fall off the bone. Enjoy!
