Brown Sugar Baked Pork Chops

Darn this nasty, dreary, non-sunny, snowy weather. It's really putting a cramp in my picture taking abilities!!! Don't base your recipe making decision on the horrendous photo above. These pork chops really were edible. I would even venture forth to say delightful and easy enough for an 8 year old to make. Yes, that's right, Miss Picky Pants can cook. She sliced the butter (without cutting any body parts off) and topped the chops with the brown sugar and then the butter slice. She's going to be quite the little cook... next I'll be testing her photography skills! Everyone enjoyed these 4 ingredient chops. They were tender, juicy and couldn't be easier. Enjoy :)

BROWN SUGAR BAKED PORK CHOPS
6 pork chops
6 tablespoons brown sugar
6 tablespoons margarine
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the chops in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Place 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on top of every chop. Place 1 tablespoon of margarine on top of the brown sugar. Sprinkle chops with soy sauce. Cover pan with foil and bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes, until browned.

*During the last 15 minutes I turned up the oven to 400 so the chops would brown better because they looked really blah*

That's funny! I just pulled out pork chops for dinner tonight. I'll try it!

I'm always looking for new ways to "dress" pork chops up and of course, it's always an added bonus when you typically have all of the ingredients on hand!

By the way...I don't think your picture looks bad at all! It is VERY hard to get good pics around dinnertime now, with the gloomy weather and the fact that it gets dark so early!

These look good! I love brown sugar on pork! And your photo looks fine! I always take photos when it's dark because that's when I'm usually cooking and baking and it definitely doesn't make for the best photos, but they will just have to do!! Can't wait until the time changes again!

I wonder if you would have broiled them for the last couple minutes under high heat if the brown sugar would carmalize?

Love how simple it is! :D

I made your Ritz Cracker Pie on New Years and loved it! I posted it on my blog. =)

Heidi, my worst blog picture is also pork chops, I think they're camera shy! The recipe sounds great though, we LOVE the combination of soy and brown sugar!

Krista said...

It's rough taking pics in the dark every night now. Hey, when it gets dark at like 4:30 and dinner isn't until 5:30 or 6, we're kinda stuck, right?

I think that these pork chops sound really good. I'd try em'.

I like the look of those chops, quite an oriental twist with the soy and sugar combination.

Norah said...

Oh goodness not only do they sound yummy but they look yummy. I think my kids would love them.
