Easy Pork Chop Dinner
Serve alongside creamy, mashed potatoes or on a fresh bed of salad to balance out the plate. You can just let the pork simmer in the liquid to absorb more flavor. Once the pork is cooked, the meat will come out melt-in-your-mouth tender. Remember that since pork chops are a lean meat cut, they could be prone to overcooking. So always watch out how long you’ll brown the meat. You wouldn’t want to serve it dry so make sure to check on each side of the meat every 3 minutes.

Glazed Brown Sugar And Garlic Pork Chops Recipe
Got a weekend potluck coming up? Well, there’s no better way than to go with the easiest dish on the menu — pork chops. Our one-pot recipe makes it quick and easy but still full of that mouthwatering bite your guests can’t resist. The brown sugar glaze and the garlic seasonings bring a savory zest to the meat from the outside all the way to the inside. To avoid getting dry and tough-meat pork chops, you need to let the meat marinate for a bit so that it absorbs the flavoring. Not only that but using a tenderizing marinate — like this brown sugar glaze, helps to penetrate through the meat so that you can slice through it like a hot knife through butter.
BBQ Pork Chops and Rice Recipe
This dish can be made with center cut pork chops or pork tenderloin. It’s easy to put together and a breeze to cook with no hassle. The BBQ marinade is simply divine. You can even make your own version of the BBQ marinate to your preference. Since BBQ sauce is a staple condiment in the United States, it’s no surprise that the smokey-peppery flavoring can also have different variations. Feel free to mix in some mustard, ketchup, honey, or even molasses to give the meat a sweet and savory touch. Just make sure to grill the meat for a good 8 to 10 minutes so it doesn’t dry out. Good for any time of the year – it is a light and satisfying dish. You can opt to serve the pork with some simple blanched vegetables or in a sandwich.
