These baked pork chops are quickly browned in a pan, and then transferred to a baking dish to bake slow and low in the oven with a generous amount of onions and apples.

You won't need to batter these pork chops or do any frying at all, and they come out tender and delicious every single time! They also make their own sauce, and the apples and onions turn out nice and soft from being baked so long.

Baked pork chops are a great weekend or holiday dinner - they do take a little while to cook, but they're worth it. Expect to bake them about an hour minimum, but longer is excellent if you've got the time!

Step 1: Ingredients!

  • bone in pork chops - thickness and size are completely up to you - they'll be cooking so long they're going to get done
  • one apple (I like gala, pink lady, anything sweet but tart) for every two porkchops
  • one white or yellow onion for every two porkchops
  • salt
  • pepper
  • dried thyme
  • olive oil
You'll also need a large glass or metal baking pan and aluminum foil. And an oven preheated to 350 F!
<p>This recipe was a big hit. I made these tonight and after dinner was over, my son kept running into the living room giving the thumbs up and saying &quot;great dinner! The pork chops were great and the apples were fun to smush and eat&quot;. He usually says &quot;when most people cook pork it usually tastes gray&quot; (meaning it is dry and has no real flavour to it).</p><p>Thank you for a family pleasing recipe. :)</p>
<p>I made these last night and they were absolutely delicious. I added some cinnamon and brown sugar to the apples and onions. I baked the pork chops for an hour and a half and they were tender and moist. This is the first time I have commented on a recipe!!</p>
<p>I just made these. I loved this recipe. I did add a splash of white wine and two cloves of minced garlic to the onion mixture. Will make again.</p>
So glad to find a new way to bake pork chops. I used boneless chops &amp; also added frozen crinkle cut (unthawed) carrots to the apples &amp; onion mix. (I had them out &amp; plan to cook them anyway, great color). I give the dish a A. <br>
This looks really tasty! I want try this after we settled in our new place.
Do you bake them in an oven or furnace?
