I think it's the hours of marinating in olive oil, but something makes these chops incredibly juicy and savory.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. combine all ingredients in a large tupperware container and refrigerate for AT LEAST 8 hours, or overnight, if you can wait that long.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Heat a frying pan on high heat, waiting until it sizzles when you drip oil on it.
  4. Sear each chop for about 30 seconds per side, or long enough to get a nice brown appearance.
  5. Arrange the browned chops in a large glass casserole dish and pour the olive oil mixture over them.
  6. There should be enough oil to keep them moist but not drown them completely.
  7. Bake for about 30 minutes, flipping them at the halfway mark.
  8. Serve with a nice, light salad and use the olive oil mix for dressing and as a sauce for the chops.

This was very good, I enjoyed the flavor. I also, went ahead and baked them and did not fry them at all. They turned out well, thanks for the recipe.

i loved this new recipe for chops- i used boneless, which tend to dry out, but this recipe kept them moist and delicious. i roasted potatoes and drizzled some of the oil from the pan over them- very good!

I used the marinade, but then cooked my pork chops the way I normally do as I did not have the time to bake them. The flavor was very good.
