My husband loves pork chops again. He didnt like pork chops because they were always served to him dry and tough. That is until he got to sample mine. They always come out moist and tender. We have these at least two or three times a month.

Ingredients

  • 4
    boneless, pork chops - ~1 inch thick
  • 1/2 tsp
    black pepper
  • 1 tsp
    seasoning salt
  • 1 tsp
    garlic powder
  • 1 tsp
    onion powder
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp
    olive oil
  • 1/2 to 1 c
    water

How to Make Moist and Tender Baked Pork Chops

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Mix together black pepper, seasoning salt, garlic & onion powder. Rub evenly all over each pork chop. (Season to your taste. My husband doesnt like his as salt so I season his less.)
  3. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over med-high heat. Lay pork chops on pan and allow to sear for 2 minutes without moving them. Flip the pork chops over and allow to sear for 1 minute longer.
  4. Remove pork chops and place in an oven safe baking dish. I use a 19 x 13 pyrex baking dish.
  5. Pour in the water. You will want the water to come about 1/3 the way up the pork chop.
  6. Cover baking dish tightly. I use tinfoil and seal the sides very tight. Place in preheated oven.
  7. Bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Your pork should be at 160 degrees when done. I would not check until at least an 1 1/2 hours have past. You will let out all the steam that is keeping the chops moist.
  8. The juices in the baking dish make a wonderful gravy.
