Easy Oven Baked Pork Chops (with Slow Cooker Option!)

Easy Oven Baked Pork Chops (with Slow Cooker Option!)

I always buy pork chops or pork loin and never know what to do with them. I love breaded, pan fried pork chops, but it’s hard to pan fry them lately with a 2 year-old running into the kitchen every 5 minutes while I’m cooking hurling Hot Wheels cars across the floor. I mainly use this recipe as a dry rub for any kind of pork I prepare. Although this recipe is meant for baked pork chops, it’s also great on a pork loin in the Crock Pot for 8 hours on low. If you decide to use the slow cooker version, add around a cup of chicken broth to the Crock Pot.

This recipe was adapted from an Easy Oven Baked Pork Chops recipe from Lemon Blossoms.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning or dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, mix the dry rub ingredients.
  3. Rub the pork chops with the olive oil and season them with the dry rub. Make sure to coat all sides of the pork chops.
  4. Place the pork chops onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until the pork is thoroughly cooked.
  6. Remove from the oven and let rest 5 to 10 minutes, tented with aluminum foil. Serve and enjoy!
