Pork chops baked in the oven is a simple way to create a meal. Unlike frying, the pork chops can be cooked with other ingredients, which makes for easy one-dish meals. Because pork chops usually are less than an inch thick, an oven meal can be prepared in less than 60 minutes. Baking also is healthier than frying, which is a wise choice for you and your family.
Simple Baked Pork Chops
Combine together in a shallow bowl, 1 egg, 1 tablespoon red wine and 2 tablespoons soy or Worcestershire sauce. In a separate shallow bowl, place dried plain or seasoned bread crumbs. Grease a shallow 9-by-13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or oil. Dip the pork chops one at a time in the egg mixture, then into the bread crumbs, making sure the pork chop is thoroughly coated. Lay the pork chops in a single layer in the baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes, then turn the chops over and cook for another 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and fork-tender.
Creamy Rice And Pork Chops
In a 9-by-13 baking dish, combine 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 cup of milk, 1/2 cup of dry onion soup mix, 3/4 cup of uncooked brown rice and 2 cups of thawed frozen broccoli or peas. Stir with a fork until combined. Lay 4 to 6 pork chops in a single layer on top of the mixture. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake at 375 degrees F for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and cook for an additional 15 minutes or until the chops are browned and fork-tender.
Pork Chops and Potatoes
Combine 1 can of cream of celery soup, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/2 cup sour cream in a 9-by-13 baking dish. Add 1 pound frozen hash browns and 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese to the mixture. In a heavy skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and brown 4 to 6 pork chops on both sides. Place the pork chops on top of the mixture and cover the pan with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 minutes, then remove the foil. Sprinkle the dish with another 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese and cook for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
