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!
Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops
- 4-5 pork chops boneless
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
- Rub your sugar/spice mix on both sides of each pork chop, using all of the spice mix.
- Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium/high heat.
- After the oil is hot, cook the pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Enjoy!

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!
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
Best porkchops ever!!!! The spice mix was amazing!
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….
I loved this tasty and simple recipe. It is definitely a keeper and one that I will go back to again and again!
Cast iron or non-stick skillet?
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!
I made them but I don’t see an option to post a pic. Rave reviews.
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.
I am going to try this in the crock pot. wish me luck. being a college student that’s all I am allowed.
Let me know how it turns out! I have an awesome slow cooker pork chop recipe here:https://therecipecritic.com/slow-cooker-creamy-ranch-pork-chops/
Have you tried making these ahead of time and freezing? Would that work out?
Delicious….and froze them. Still delicious thawed
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. 🙂
What temp how long. Thanks
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!
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. 🙂
Made these tonight and they were awesome!
Excellent recipe! Chops were so glazed perfect outside and super moist inside.
These were delicious! As well as super fast and easy too!
Love this recipe! Made it once already.
But I was wondering, would this recipe work if I were to grill it on a grill,?
holy crap we are on the same wavelength!! Brown sugar everything today!
