Simple One Pan Pork Chops

Simple One Pan Pork Chops

If you were alive when the Brady Bunch was around, you’ll respect the meal that I’m about to show you. If not, well, I’m aging myself, and go google Brady Bunch and the “Pork chops and applesauce” episode. It’s super funny and it’s the first time I ever heard of eating pork chops with applesauce. 

My mom usually made her pork chops with cream of mushroom soup and were dry to the bone. Sorry mom. Love you.

But, as I’ve grown up from the cream of salt soups and began paying attention to ingredients that are in all the “short cut” and convenience foods, I’ve enjoyed creating healthier versions that taste WAY better than the short cuts. And don’t make you feel like crap afterwards. 

Better yet? The kids LOVE this dish! 

Check out this simple recipe that’s perfect for the busy weeknight hustle! 

The next time you’re at the store, pick up some apples and pork chops and put this combo in  yo mouth. ;)

SIMPLE ONE PAN PORK CHOPS

Serves 4

Prep time 5 minutes

Cook time 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 center cut thick bone in pork chops
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons bbq rub
  • ½ cup flour or almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon evoo
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 lemon, quartered
  • 1 pomegranate, seeds removed

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Sprinkle on bbq rub all over. Sprinkle on some flour on both sides of each pork chop. Set aside.
  2. In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, add in 1 tablespoon evoo and add in pork chops. Cook about 5 minutes, until browned, then flip to other side.
  3. Place pan with pork chops into preheated oven. Cook about 10-15 minutes, or until pork is cooked through and no longer pink. Pork should read about 145 degrees. Remove from oven, add butter to the pan and make sure it’s nice and coated in the butter. Squeeze on some fresh lemon juice and let sit 10 minutes before you start slicing it. This allows the juices to redistribute and makes for a nice, juicy pork chop.
  4. When you’re ready to serve, slice up your pork, sprinkle on some pomegranate seeds and serve with extra lemon wedges. Enjoy! 

To serve, baked sweet potatoes or roasted brussels sprouts. 

These go amazingly well with my Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce
