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. 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. 🙂

  1. 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!

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. I just happened upon your blog looking for a glazed pork chop recipe (picked up thin pork chops at Aldi) a few hours ago and needed a quick one here in Massachusetts.. I also saw your Mongolian Beef recipe that I plan to make next week, as my daughter loves that dish after spending her mission trip time in Mongolia. I sent both recipes to my sister. The family here loved the pork chops and my sister in Illinois already texted a pic of the Mongolian Beef she has in her crock pot. It sounds like it’s not too spicy for our Littles! I’m grateful to you for the great recipes and plan to try more!

  5. If I have dark brown sugar can I just add 1/8 cup dark brown sugar and 1/8 cup white sugar? Because brown sugar is just white sugar with molasses and dark brown just has more molasses….

  6. This was so easy, really juicy and delicious
    I put a slice of vidalia onion on top of each chop which browned nicely when I turned chops over, and I usually cover them if they are extra thick. This is definitely one of my favorite recipes

  7. Just had this for dinner tonight and I’m already excited for leftovers tomorrow! It was so quick and easy to make, super juicy and great flavour!
