Easy Marinated Baked Pork Chops: Recipe


Alright, fellow easy meal makers the recipe to the delicious - no one died- pork chops I wrote about on Monday is finally here.

Now head on into your pantry & grab these everyday ingredients (what, you don't douse your food in soy sauce everyday? Yeah right.) and put this together asap...your family will thank you. If you're lucky their thanks will come in the form of money or gifts but if they don't (the economy's pretty bad right now, remember?) just be nice & accept their hugs instead.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

3 tsp - Soy Sauce
3 tsp - Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp - Vegetable Oil (I used corn oil)
3 tsp - Ketchup
2 tsp - Lemon juice (fresh squeezed or store bought)
4 tsp - Brown Sugar (I used cane sugar but it doesn't really matter)
Salt
Pepper
6 - pork chops, trimmed (bone in or boneless I prefer boneless)
9 x 13 inch baking dish

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

- In a mixing bowl (I used measuring bowl), thoroughly blend soy sauce, vegetable oil, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, and ketchup to make marinade. Should be about 1/2 cup.

- Rinse pork chops, cut off any excess fat, dab dry with paper towel.

- Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper as you place them in the baking dish. (I fit all 6, it's OK if they touch)

- Spread 1/2 of your marinade mix onto the top of pork chops. Cover baking dish loosely with foil.

- Bake pork chops for 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Turn over pork chops & spread remaining 1/2 of marinade on top of them.

- Cover & continue baking for 30 minutes or until internal temperature of pork chops reaches 160 degrees (70 degrees C). Let cool or serve right away, either way don't forget to top with extra pork chop juice/marinade for added flavor.

*Note: I used the same amount of of tsp's of ingredients for the 2 pork chops as I did for the 6 I made on Monday night, I just had more juice left over...which was totally OK with me ;)

Easy peasy I tell ya! The pork chops come out moist and delicious and the hot pork chop juice/marinade can be used to top mashed potatoes & any other side. <-- Did it & it was amazing

Not only was this a no hassle meal but because pork is so cheap it only costed me about $10 to make since I had almost all ingredients in my kitchen...$6.95 for 8 pork chops, $2.50 for soy sauce. Epic kitchen win up in here!

  4. ooooo nice! anything with worchesthire (spelling!) sauce my husband LOVES! I will have to make those for sure! also I dont get to cook much but when I do cook its ALWAYS in the oven. I am a huge fan of anything I can stick in the oven then sit on my butt for an hour while it cooks lol. pretty much all of our meat is baked and our veggies steamed....not for health reasons but because we are lazy cookers haha!
