PorkChops- My Way

Updated on January 4, 2012

takes some time to make but is definitely worth it!

Hey fellow Hubbers! I hope you are having a great day or night, wherever you may be in this world. I just wanted to share a pork chop recipe for you that I have made a few times now; it comes out really well.


1. Thin to medium thick lean pork chops- 4-6 in number

2. Either ketchup or spicy ketchup (Heinz Kickers is one that I have used)- about 3-4 tablespoons

3. 1 tsp of each: salt, cinnamon, cayenne/chilli pepper, ground mustard, black pepper, garlic and ginger paste.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a big bowl or plastic container, mix ketchup and spices well. Then add about 3-4 tablespoons of water and mix again. Next add pork chops and mix well to make sure marinade is on each pork chop. Then let sit for about a half an hour. After a half hour turn pork chops over and mix well to make sure marinade is on each pork chop again.

Preparation Time: About 35-40 minutes because of marination.

Transfer the pork and spices to a baking dish (either a square baking dish or a 13" by 9" dish will do), cover with aluminum foil and put in oven for about 35 minutes. Then take foil off from dish and bake uncovered for about 10-15 more minutes. Let cool in the same baking dish for about 5 minutes and enjoy.

Preparation Time: About 45-50 minutes due to baking time.

Serves: About 4-6 people

I hope these pork chops turn out well for you. I know my husband loves them, so hopefully you will too! Happy baking! As always, comments, thoughts and ideas are greatly welcomed!

      Hi rjsadowski. Yes, they are pretty tasty! You are correct in assuming the aluminum foil is for the juiciness of the pork chops. Thanks for stopping by!

      Sounds very tasty and easy to make. I assume that the aluminum foil helps to keep the pork chops juicy.
