No fancy seasoning. And no searing.

A guide on how to prep, season and bake pork chops.

These baked pork chops are served with a side of baked green beans, but any vegetable of your choice can be added instead of green beans.

It is not a secret that I use pork in my recipes quite often, I cook with it at least once a week.

Most cuts of pork, like these bone-in pork chops cook fast, combine well with various seasonings and sides and also taste delicious.

What ingredients do I need to make baked bone-in pork chops?

  • bone-in pork chops (about 1 inch or less thickness)
  • salt for seasoning, may need more than the recommended amount in the recipe
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • paprika
  • oil

How long does it take to bake pork chops?

This Oven Baked Bone-In Pork Chops Recipe is ready in 30 minutes total, including preparation, baking and resting time.

So easy to make, with minimal prep work and minimal ingredients.

Serve these chops with a side salad, mashed potatoes or roasted vegetables.

I personally love the combination of green beans and pork, so I baked some green beans in the oven together with the pork chops.

This created the perfect sheet pan dinner for any day of the week.

Can you grill pork steaks with bones?

I chose to bake these pork chops, but you can also grill them.

It is still quite cold around here, this is why I have not started grilling yet.

Grill pork chops on medium-high for 4-5 minutes per side, until the internal temperature is 145 F.

What seasoning to use for pork chops?

You can marinade or dry rub the chops.

Since I’m usually busy, have limited time and often times I don’t even realize that it is 5 o’clock already, so I have to quickly make dinner, I just use olive (or vegetable) oil and dry spices.

I used:

  • salt
  • pepper
  • onion powder
  • and paprika (a mix of smoked and regular paprika tastes delicious!)

You can also add cumin, oregano, dried parsley, some garlic, cayenne pepper or any other seasoning of your choice.

I brush the pork chops with oil, then add the seasoning on both sides and bake.

How to cook these?

How do you make tender pork chops?

I personally prefer the oven baked method, but you can also grill or pan fry them.

Time for cooking depends on the thickness and method of cooking you choose.

Pork chops are considered safe for consumption if the internal temperature of the meat has reached 145 F.

Marinating Pork 

These baked bone in pork chops are quickly seasoned and baked, but if you’d like to take the extra step, you can marinate them.

For thinner cuts of pork that also contain the bone, I rarely marinate.

I like this technique for thicker cut, boneless pork chops, because they generally lack the flavor bone-in pork chops do.

For the marinade, you can use:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika (or smoked paprika)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley (optional)

Why do I prefer to cook these chops in the oven?

Because they cook quickly and stay juicy.

With grilling and pan frying you have the risk of the meat drying and turning into something very hard to chew.

How long do you bake pork chops in the oven for?

It depends on the kind of oven and pan used, but also the thickness of the meat, but I usually bake pork chops at 400 F for 15-20 minutes.

You can turn them once half way through, but you can also let them roast without turning.

What temperature should I cook pork chops to?

The internal temperature of the meat should be 145F and you need to let the chops rest for 3 minutes, before serving.

What to serve these with?

For the baked green beans – I used frozen (defrosted ) green beans, that I seasoned with salt and pepper and baked in the oven at the same time with the meat.

The only thing is that you do need to keep an eye on the green beans and remove them from the oven if they are done before the chops.

I usually remove them at the same time, but in some cases the beans may cook faster than the meat.

  1. My husband is always requesting more pork recipes, especially pork chops, so I’ve got to try this! I love how easy this is to prepare. And those beans sound like the perfect side! Pinned!

    1. Yes Gayle, they are super easy and quick to make! Hope you get to try them! The most important is not to over cook them 🙂

  2. We love pork chops and I don’t make them enough! Bone-in is the way to go to keep them from overcooking so fast. These look amazing Mira!

  3. made this for lunch just now, perfect timing + temp for the chop, it came out so juicy. I had it with brussels sprouts and potatoes, cause it’s what I had. Also, I added some gochugaru, a Korean spice, to give the meat a little kick. Thanks for the post and recipe!

    1. Is the olive oil important to keep them juicy and not dry. I forgot to put the olive oil on before I put on my seasoning hoping they’ll turn out okay without it.

      1. They should still be juicy without the olive oil, it is more to make them more brown on the outside and help the seasoning to stick to them.
