This Pork Chop Recipe really is the best!
My boys love pork chops. It seems like it doesn’t matter how many I cook up, there’s never any leftovers! They always say thanks mom those were the best pork chops ever!
The last time I made them, my husband said that might have been the best pork chop I have ever had. He has ordered the pork chops at a popular steak restaurant chain and loves those. So, I was pretty surprised that he thought it was better than a $20 plate!
I only wish I made $20 a plate. 😉
The chops are so easy to make. I remember when I was single with no kids, I would grill basically every kind of meat. I was pretty good at it too. 😉
I don’t grill these chops though. Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about firing up the grill. One less thing to do!
The right pan…
We are broiling these, which means you need a broiler pan. Okay well as you can see in the pictures, I don’t exactly have a broiler pan. I think technically what I have is a cooling rack that came with a cookie sheet.
Don’t laugh, it works just fine! It is basically the same thing. Some cooling racks may not be appropriate to put in the oven so look at the instructions and make sure it is oven worthy!
As you will see in the pictures, I put the rack on top of the cookie sheet and place the chops on the cooling rack. If you have a real broiler pan, which sometimes comes with ovens then I would use that. Or you can buy one on Amazon. I have been looking at this Broiler Pan for a while.
I would love to buy it, but buying one is just not in the budget. I am often finding alternatives so that I do not need to buy something new if I do not have to. It is part of being a homesteader, a mom of three hungry boys, and a hungry husband.
Money is better spent towards food in my house, like buying more chops.

- Marinate the chops about 1.5 hours, in the fridge in your marinade.
- Set oven on Broil (Hi)
- Pull out chops and place them on the broiler pan at least an inch apart
- Broil for 5- 7 minutes.
- Turn chops over brush with more marinade, and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until the edges begin to crisp!
