Oven Baked Pork Chops - The Southern Lady Cooks

These oven baked pork chops are tender with a flavor you and your family or guests will enjoy.  The sweetness of the molasses combined with the brown sugar and spicy mustard make the perfect flavor combination.  Serve these to family for an easy weeknight dinner or to guests for a main dish company meal.  These baked pork chops go with just about any vegetable side dish.  I love serving my recipe for sweet cornbread mini muffins with these baked chops because they go so well with most pork dishes.  I am a big fan of any kind of pork and we have lots of recipes on the site.  Just type what you are looking for in the search box on any page and they should come up for you and Enjoy!

Oven Baked Pork Chops simple ingredients:

Boneless pork chops

Brown sugar

Dijon mustard

Worcestershire sauce


Minced garlic




Bread crumbs of your choice or all-purpose flour

I always like to cook my pork on 350 degrees and I do 30 minutes per pound, or until the center reaches 145 degrees. I test my meat with a meat thermometer. Pork cooks pretty quickly so it’s good to take it out and test it at around 25 minutes.

Each time we post this recipe we receive comments asking if you can replace the molasses with honey, maple syrup or corn syrup. You can always give it a try. We only make the recipes the way we share them. You can always try substitutions.

I have used stone ground mustard in place of the Dijion mustard and they were delicious!
