Sour Cream Pork Chop Recipe:

I found this baked pork chop recipe in Caterin’ to Charleston Cook Book. Underneath the recipe, it noted “Men love these.”  Well that certainly caught my attention; that and the fact that the entire recipe was only a handful of ingredients.

After eating these, I completely understand why they are such a hit.  The sauce, which is sour cream-based, has a nice little tang to it that goes great with the baked pork chops. Sour cream is a naturally acidic ingredient which helps to break down the protein in the pork chops and make it more tender.

I recommend serving it along side a rice dish like French Onion Rice Casserole or Rice Pilaf to soak up the sauce.

Baked Pork Chops are the Best

I love pork; it’s actually my favorite type of protein.  This most likely stems from growing up the daughter of a pig farmer.  Bacon, pork chops, pork burgers, pork sausage, pulled pork—I love it all.

What I do not like is a dry pork chop. YUCK! There’s nothing worse than biting into a dry piece of meat.  Have no fear, this recipe creates the opposite.  Browning and slowly baking in a covered dish results in a fork-tender pork chop.

Any time I see a new baked pork chop recipe, I mark it or save it for later.  That’s how I found my favorites which include Fancy Baked Pork Chops and Cranberry Baked Pork Chops.

How to Make Sour Cream Breaded Pork Chops:

  3. In a small saucepan, warm up water, sour cream, sugar and vinegar.
  4. Place pork in a greased baking dish; pour sauce over top.
  5. Cover and cook for 1 hour in a 400 degree F oven.

Notes About Breaded Pork Chops in Sour Cream Sauce:

  • We used a bone-in pork chop which was roughly an inch thick. You can use thinner, boneless pork chops but the cook time will be quicker. Just be sure you cook them until the internal temperature is 145 degrees F.
  • This sour cream pork chop recipe has enough sauce for 2 pork chops.  Double or triple the recipe if you are feeding a larger family.
  • A substitute for the garlic powder would be to cut a slit in the pork after browning, and insert a garlic clove into each pork chop.
  • Rice vinegar or apple cider vinegar can be substituted for the white vinegar in this breaded pork chop recipe.
  • Be sure to cover the baking dish tightly in aluminum foil before baking.
  • If desired, spoon the sour cream sauce over the pork and return covered to the oven the last ten minutes of cooking.
