Fancy Baked Pork Chops in a Deep Covered Baker

Barbara is always on the lookout for baked pork chop recipes to fix in her Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker. Lo and behold, she found the perfect one in her trusty Pot O’Gold cookbook. Big shout out to Dorothy Maher for this delicious baked pork chop recipe.

If you don’t have a deep covered baker, use your favorite baking dish.  Just be sure to cover the dish tightly with foil before baking the southern pork chops.

Pork chops can be tricky. Baking them low and slow is a great way to ensure a moist pork chop. This is the basis of many of our favorite baked pork chop recipes.

Using a lower oven temperature as this recipe calls for or a slow cooker are two great methods for baking pork chops.

How do you know if your pork chops are done?

The easiest way to judge whether your pork chops are cooked thoroughly is with a meat thermometer.  The USDA recommends cooking pork to 145 degrees F as an internal temperature.  Using a meat thermometer will ensure you don’t cook too long creating a dry, tough pork chop.

As a rule of thumb, meat continues to cook when it comes out of the oven. Try cooking your pork chops to 140 degrees F, and then let the pork chop rest at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes. Allowing this rest time ensures the pork will reach 145 degrees F and that the juice will stay in the meat when cut.

My pork chops are slightly pink in the middle. Are they ok to eat?

Yes, pork chops tend to be a little pink if cooked correctly.  Use your meat thermometer to judge the doneness, not the color of the pork.

What vegetable goes with pork chops?

Pork chops are the perfect entrée to serve up practically any vegetable side dish.  Here’s 20 easy vegetable side dishes to serve with pork chops.

Notes About Tender Oven Baked Pork Chops:

  • We used center cut pork chops that were 3/4-inch thick.
  • Salt and pepper them generously before adding them to the baking dish.  Be sure to include the thinly-sliced onion in this dish.
  • If you have picky eaters, you can definitely serve the pork chops without the onions but they add so much flavor that you don’t want to leave them out totally.
  • The sauce over these 4 ingredient oven baked pork chops is super simple. Just mix together a can of cream of chicken soup, some ketchup and Worcestershire sauce and pour over the pork chops and onions.
  • If you don’t have a Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker, no big deal. Just use a glass baking dish and cover with foil while baking.

We like serving these with Rice Pilaf or French Onion Rice Casserole but you could do mashed potatoes instead.
