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.

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.
