(1 1/4 inch) thick pork chops
packed brown sugar
not bad, but I made the mistake of baking it in a glass dish. With the aluminum foil cover, the air in the dish was not heated at all. So the first half of the baking was a complete waste.
I thought this one was ok. My hubby and nephew enjoyed it. I took the "broil at the end to brown" suggestion by another reviewer, but I found that I then overcooked them. I baked mine until they just hit 160, then I broiled them for a very short amount of time. The taste was not bad, just not very moist :( But, I'll give it a try again, without broiling! (I served it with sliced taters and onions that were fried over butter and weshtisher sauce).
Nothing was in the fridge to cook except pork chops and I was dreading it since pork chops were just comsummed for dinner a week ago. I popped onto allrecipes.com hoping to find something superb I could whip up with ingredients already in my pantry. I stumbled upon this and my family went BESERK! They loved it! I did it, moist and delicious! I omitted the ketchup but WOWOW the brown sugar was definitely a huge plus, it even made the onions sweet and tangy and good and my kids never eat the onions but they did tonight!!! Defintely a keeper in my own recipe book!
The only reason I gave 4 Stars instead of 5 is because of the appearance. They do not look very appetizing; perhaps under the broiler for browning for a couple of minutes would help. I can't tell that the ketchup added anything to the chops. Next time I will salt the chops too. I couldn't believe the taste. The chops were enhanced with the onion & brown sugar. These are excellent, and nothing could be easier. I will most definately make these again & again.
Wow thanks, I never made this in the oven, I always cook it in a frying pan. I tried it in the oven, though it didn't get brown like I was use to, the flavor was still there and probably so much healthier than frying. The only difference in my recipe is that I mix the 1/4 Cup Ketchup and 1/4 cup water (more if you want more sauce). If usually brown the chops first then put the lemon and onion slice, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and pour the sauce over it. Cover and cook for one hour. I like your recipe though, so much easier and healthier.
I have made this a few times now and i am certain that this is better with BBQ sauce instead of the ketchup and sugar. Way better. Otherwise I follow the recipe exactly.
This is an easy dish to prepare, and we liked it quite a bit. I will make it again, but I will stack it a little differently. I'll put the catsup on top of the pork chop, followed by the lemon, then the onion, and finally the brown sugar. It looks a little strange, but it has good flavor. I did brine my pork chops first using only salt, sugar, and water. My side dish was capellini made with Lemon Pasta Sauce from this site. Thanks for the recipe, Jose!
This dish was delicious!!!! I added a bit of freshly squeezed lemon juice after it was done cooking. I also substituted Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce for the ketchup. The onions and chops turned out so tender and juicy!
