Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops

I love quick and easy meals that turn out fantastic.  It tasted as great as ordering it from a restaurant.  The brown sugar glaze over these pork chops gave it such amazing flavor.  It has a little sweet too it but the spices in it helped to balance it to give it the perfect flavor.  This meal was definitely a win for our family and so easy to put together!

  1. holy crap we are on the same wavelength!! Brown sugar everything today!

  2. Love this recipe! Made it once already.
    But I was wondering, would this recipe work if I were to grill it on a grill,?

  3. These were delicious! As well as super fast and easy too!

  4. Excellent recipe! Chops were so glazed perfect outside and super moist inside.

  5. Made these tonight and they were awesome!

  6. Just made these but the sugar caramelized and were black. This is a recipe worth learning to make!

    • Hey, I had that happening to me, too, and I found that turning the heat down a bit (keeping it on a medium-ish), and keeping it well oiled (adding more olive oil when necessary) prevented it from going black. 🙂

  7. Delicious! If you are cooking with gas I would recommend pan frying on medium-low heat so that you don’t burn the sugar. Next time I will also add more spice into the mix to give it an extra kick!

  8. I have made these several times and they are always amazing. I pan fry mine just enough to caramelize the brown sugar then bake it in the oven to finish cooking. They turn out so tender I can never just eat one. It is just myself in the house so I use a thicker cut chop ones that are about a 1 1/2 – 2 inches thick and just use 2 just as good the next day. 🙂

  9. Have you tried making these ahead of time and freezing? Would that work out?

  10. I am going to try this in the crock pot. wish me luck. being a college student that’s all I am allowed.

  11. I made these with rice/peppers and onions. It was great. I took a little of the mixture and added in with my peppers and onions as I sautéed them.

  12. I made them but I don’t see an option to post a pic. Rave reviews.
