One Pan Baked Pork Chops For A Busy Weeknight Dinner:

My weekdays are pretty busy.

I work from home and I like to get all work done during the week, so I have my weekends off.

Everything I cook needs to be simple and quick to prepare.

I love to cook, I just have to be organized and pick simple recipes.

This way I get to spend more time with my baby, do some work and even get to relax.

Weekdays are long and I constantly have to do a lot of things, so often times I don’t realize that it is almost 5 o’clock.

And guess what?

I need to cook dinner.

Bone-in pork chops are one of my favorite cuts of pork to cook, because they cook quickly and taste amazing.

It’s extremely easy to prepare and versatile enough for both weeknight dinners or weekend entertaining with family or friends.

What ingredients do you need to make one pan baked pork chop recipe?

  • bone in pork chops (boneless can be substituted), about 1 inch thick or a little less
  • olive or vegetable oil
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • thyme
  • mushrooms
  • onions
  • reduced balsamic vinegar

How to make One Pan Pork Chops?

 I seared pork chops in a cast iron skillet on the stove top for 4 minutes on one side, then turned them. Added mushrooms and onions to the pan and cooked everything in the oven for 6-10 more minutes.

Once the pork chops are cooked, have reached the safe temperature of 145 F (for pork)  and have turned golden, you can take them out of the oven and continue cooking the mushrooms and onions for a few more minutes if needed.

Then drizzle some reduced balsamic vinegar over the mushrooms and onions and the meat and serve.

It is that easy!

You can make your own reduced balsamic vinegar or buy it at the store.

It is thicker and sweeter than regular balsamic vinegar.

Weekday dinners shouldn’t be stressful.

All you need is high quality ingredients and easy recipes to prepare.

How long to bake Pork Chops in the oven for?

This is a great question and it depends on the type and cut of pork chops you are cooking with.

For this One Pan Pork Chops With Balsamic Mushrooms And Onions recipe I used 1/2-inch bone-in pork chops. I seared them for 1-2 minutes per side on the stove top and then finished cooking in the oven at 400 F for about 10 minutes, or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 145F (I usually cook mine to 155-160 F, because I love them well done).

If you are not searing the pork chops and just placing them in the oven to cook, bake at 400 F for 15-20 minutes, until the chops reach a temperature of 145 F.

For thicker cut pork chops, that are about twice as thick (1  to 1 1/2 inches) bake at 450 F for 20-25 minutes, until the temperature on the meat is 145 F. You can sear them for 1-2 minutes per side before cooking.

Thicker cut pork chops are a little more difficult to find, but less likely to overcook, They taste amazing! Next time I find them at the store, I’ll definitely share with you how I cook them.
