Easy Pork Chop and Onion Bake

This recipe is so easy, yet so tasty and full of flavor, nobody but you will know how easy it was. It's one of my favorite way to do pork chops because it produces a wonderfully tender and delicious chop. I like to do this low and slow in the oven, but you can also finish it on the stovetop on a low simmer if you prefer. Just follow the recipe all the way to deglazing the pan, and then return the chops to the skillet, cover and simmer on low until done.

Recipe: Easy Pork Chop and Onion Bake

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 15 min |Cook time: 40 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 6 bone-in pork chops
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Kosher salt, fresh cracked black pepper and Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama), to taste
  • 1 Vidalia or yellow onion, sliced into rings
  • 1-1/2 cups of beef stock or broth
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme, crushed
Instructions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Heat canola oil in a large lidded stainless skillet. Dry the chops well and add to skillet, sprinkling the top side with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning; brown. Turn, sprinkle the other side with seasonings, brown; remove to a baking dish.

In the same skillet, break the onion into rings and saute in the pan drippings until lightly caramelized. Add the broth to the skillet and deglaze. Pour the entire contents of the skillet over the chops, spreading the onions evenly over the top of the chops; sprinkle with the thyme.

Cover and bake at 325 degrees for about 40 minutes or until tender and cooked through. Spoon pan sauce over individual servings.


Pork Chop and Potatoes Variation: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Butter a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish. Season and brown pork chops in a skillet as above; set aside. Add onions and caramelize. Increase broth to 2 full cups and deglaze the skillet with the broth. Whisk 2 tablespoons of all purpose flour in with the broth until well blended. Peel and rinse 4 medium sized potatoes and slice fairly thin. To the buttered casserole dish add a layer of half of the potatoes and top with 1/3 of the broth and onion mixture; repeat layers. Place chops on top. Pour remaining broth and onion on top. Cover tightly with a double layer of aluminum foil and bake at 325 degrees F for about 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Time will depend on how thick you cut the potatoes.

  3. Mary, although my seasoning may be different from yours, the browning and putting in the oven to become fork tender and the seasoning to ooze down into the meat has been a favorite of mine for many years. Will be trying yours very soon.

    I do have a recipe I believe you would like and would be glad to email it to you.

    Yes, I can pass the test. I am a southern girl myself.

  7. I like pork chops smoked, grilled, fried, etc, but my favorite may be the nearly fall apart tender you get from slowly baking them and yours look and sound outstanding.

  13. Hi Mary, how do you think these would be in the crock pot? I'm looking for a good pork chop crock pot recipe.

  14. I think it would work great for the CP! I'd still sear the chops and caramelize the onion myself, throw the chops in and top with the onion and I'd say take it about 4 to 5 hours on low for 1/2 inch chops. I'll have to give it a run myself to be sure, but that ought to do it!

  15. Tried these for dinner tonight. One addition for me,,, I'm a single man, and I don't feel like I've eaten without meat and potatos, so I threw in a few small red potatos to the mix.. WONDERFUL

  16. Excellent dish. Made it for dinner tonight. Hubby and I enjoyed. I substituted garlic powder in the place of the salt. Only because Slap Ya Mama has various seasonings plus I am a garlic LOVER. This was so easy and doesnt require much time.

  17. Made this tonight Mary. Served it with white rice and green beans. We had some thin, boneless chops that I used. Due to that, I cut down the bake time to 25 mins. Wish I would have cooked them a little longer so they would have gotten more tender.

    When I pulled them out of the oven, I drain the beef broth into a pot, added a little corn starch and turned it into a gravy,

    It was really good. Wife and I had it for dinner and I am thinking those two pieces left over are going to make a great sandwich (pork dip?) for lunch tomorrow...
