Moist and Tender Baked Pork Chops

Jolene Kath


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.

How to Make Moist and Tender Baked Pork Chops


  • 1Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • 2Mix 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.)
  • 3Heat 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.
  • 4Remove pork chops and place in an oven safe baking dish. I use a 19 x 13 pyrex baking dish.
  • 5Pour in the water. You will want the water to come about 1/3 the way up the pork chop.
  • 6Cover baking dish tightly. I use tinfoil and seal the sides very tight. Place in preheated oven.
  • 7Bake 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.
  • 8The juices in the baking dish make a wonderful gravy.
