Glazed Pork Chops

I know, I know. I am behind. It isn't that I am not cooking. I am just not posting.  (Ironically, I do have about five posts started, just not completed)

But this is a recipe I do want to remember. I found it here.  I have made it twice now and have loved it both times. Plus it is easy and fairly quick. My favorite combination.

  • Pork Chops (originally recipe called for 4 thick cut; we typically get 6 thinner chops due to family size)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (depending on how many pork chops you use)
  • 1/2 tsp of the following:  garlic powder, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Mix brown sugar and spices/seasonings.  Rub the sugar mixture into the pork chops. I just put the mixture into a bowl then kind of "dredge" the chops in it.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet at medium/high heat.  I use a cast iron skillet because it can go into the oven.
  • Once the oil is hot add the pork chops to the skillet. Cook about 5 minutes on each side until they are browned.
  • Place in the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes (if you are NOT using a cast iron skillet, transfer to something oven safe) to thoroughly cook the pork chops.
  • Enjoy!
Note:  I don't do paprika or cayenne due to food issues for one of my kiddos. So I just add a little of my own choices like a little onion powder and white pepper).

We ate this meal with half baked potatoes (completely baked but halved :) ) and French bread.  It is quite simple, quite good!

More soon.  Really. :)
