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. 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. 🙂

  2. 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!

    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. 🙂

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