Glazed Pork Chops

"Easy to make tender oven baked pork chops. My family likes these chops with fresh steamed buttered green beans, or frozen peas mixed with fresh mushrooms sliced and sauteed lightly, and mashed potatoes.Tip: Fill a clean empty spice bottle (one with large holes in the shaker top) with cornstarch to use for dusting any meat before browning - a great tenderizer."

    We made this tonight for the two of us. We used two porkchops and cut the sauce in half. We served with squash which we threw in the oven first and then worked on the chops which we threw in the oven. It did not take a whole hour and this was very tender.

    These were good and my family enjoyed them. They were a little bit too lemony for us and a little too much ketchup as well. I think next time I will use even smaller lemon slices and reduce the amount of ketchup, too. Overall, a great dinner.

    I used to make this and loved it. I lost the recipe - I've been looking for it for the longest time so I thank you for posting it. As I remember, I did not bake it but cooked it in the pan over low heat. Can't wait to try it!

    My mother-in-law used to make this very same dish, the recipe for which she clipped out of the National Enquirer. When she passed, I looked through her things to see if I could find it but no luck. I'm so glad you posted this so that I can make this myself!

    Easy and good. My family enjoyed them and cleaned their plates tonight. I think these could be made on the stovetop, too. My glaze could have thickened a little more but was good with the rice I served with it.


<p>My favorite thing to do is to spend time with family and friends,&nbsp;especially my two grandsons. Cooking, collecting recipe books and tried and true recipes from family and friends, and all the wonderful cooks here at, is what I enjoy too.</p> <p>My favorite sayings are: &nbsp;Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, and Today is a gift; that is why it is called the 'present'. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp; and&nbsp;&nbsp;Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today. <img title=Smile src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif border=0 alt=Smile />&nbsp;</p> <p>My favorite poem is: <br /><span>Common Things <br /></span>The things I prize of greatest worth, <br />Are just the common things of earth; <br />the rain, the sun, the grass, the trees; <br />The flowers, the birds, the glorious breeze; <br />Clouds that pass, and stars that shine, <br />Mountains, valleys, all are mine; <br />Rivers broad, and open sea <br />Are riches none can take from me. <br />Our God is here on every hand, <br />Upon the sea, upon the land! <br />And day by day my thanks I give <br />That with these common things I live. <br />....Praying Hands</p> <p>My pet peeve is people who spit gum on the sidewalk even if there is a trash bin a few feet away!! I have stepped in 'fresh' gum a couple of times!!&nbsp;</p> <p><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
