Brown Sugar Pork Chops Recipe

brown sugar pork chops
If you are looking for a delicious baked pork chops recipe this might be perfect for you. What is great about these brown sugar pork chops is how easy they are to prepare. The pork chops are rubbed with garlic and brown sugar, drizzled with butter, sprinkled with paprika and then are baked. Once the pork chops are almost finished in the oven, they are topped off with shredded Colby-jack cheese. The baking time only takes about 20-25 minutes so these pork chops can be ready in no time at all! I like to serve this dish with wild rice and/or a salad. Enjoy.

Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Yield: 4 Servings


  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 4 garlic cloves (finely chopped)

  2. Place into the oven and bake at 350 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature has reached (145 degrees F.).
  3. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the Colby-jack cheese over the tops of the pork chops. Return to the oven and bake for another 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.

    This was the first dish I made after I was engaged and it continues to be my husband’s favorite. Though I have never made it with the cheese on top. Will have to try that next time!

    This turned out horrible. Too garlicky for my taste.

    Sorry you did not enjoy the recipe. Perhaps you could try adding less garlic next time or leaving it out and see if you have better results.
