Saucy Pork Chop for One (Or More)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

Living single makes it hard for those of us who are used to cooking for a family of four. I invested in a new magazine called Cooking for 2 and LOVE IT! The recipes are for one or two folks and no leftovers to crowd my fridge. I like this one because the pork chop is not rubbery or tough to eat and the sauce can be easily multiplied to serve several people.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Season chop with pepper; place in a small nonstick skillet.
  2. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except 1 tablespoons water and cornstarch. Pour over pork. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20-25 minute or until meat thermometer reads 160 degrees. Remove pork chop and keep warm.
  3. Stir together cornstarch and 1 tablespoons water and stir into the pan juices. Bring to a boil and cook 1 minute or until thickened. Pour over pork.

Definitely tasty! Made for a nice moist pork chop, and easy on the ingredients list. I added garlic powder and fresh sage, mmm nom nom. I did have to keep a sharp eye on the liquid level. Added a few teaspoons of water as necessary. Quite tasty!

I thought this was pretty good but was missing something, perhaps just a dash of pineapple juice and an extra spice or two. My husband suggested adding some liquid smoke to it (after we'd already eaten it). So, I played with the leftover sauce after supper, adding some liquid smoke, a tiny bit of chicken bouillon granules, and some cayenne pepper. Once I was done with it, it kind of tasted like KFC's honey BBQ wings sauce. So, I think next time I make it, I'll add some liquid smoke, cayenne pepper, and a little bit of beef bouillon.

Another winner from Amy~~made exactly as listed except doubled for my mom and me. Tasty and easy, the perfect combination! I must add to this review that we enjoyed this so much I've made it two more times while I have been here! This will get added to the regular rotation!
