Savory Baked Pork Chops

Pork Chops that are savory, tender, smothered in onions and baked in a foil pouch. If you don’t like onions, just leave them out.

Heat oil in a large skillet

over medium heat.

Sprinkle a light coating of the

paprika, sage and thyme on one

side of each pork chop and rub it in.

Slice the onion in half and then in

1/4” thick strips, separate the strips.

Place the pork chops, herb side

down, into the hot skillet.

Salt and pepper the top, to taste, then

place the onions around the pork chops.

Cook just until the pork chops

are a golden brown, then turn

them over and brown the other side.

You are not cooking them, just

browning them.

Remove the pork chops and

place each one on a large sheet

of heavy-duty foil. Each one

will have it’s own pouch. Continue

cooking the onions until tender.

Divide the cooked onions between the

pork chops and place them on

top of each one.

Seal the foil into a pouch so liquid

won’t seep out. Place the pouches

on a baking sheet, seam side up.

Place in a preheated 400 degrees

oven for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and carefully open

the foil pouch, it will be hot and

steam may come out.

Enjoy!

  • 1″ thick pork chops, boneless 
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • medium onions (1/2 onion per pork chop) 
  • dried sage
  • paprika
  • dried thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

I did not put a quantity for the seasonings, I just lightly sprinkled them on one side of each pork chop

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, add the oil.
  3. Sprinkle a light coating of sage, paprika and thyme on one side of each pork chop then rub it in.
  4. Slice each onion in half and then into 1/4″ strips, separate the strips.
  5. Place the pork chops, herb side down, into the hot skillet.
  6. Salt and pepper the top unseasoned side.
  7. Place the onions around the pork chops.
  8. Cook just until the pork chops are a golden brown. Turn them over and brown the other side. You are not cooking them, just browning them.
  9. Remove the pork chops, only, from the skillet and place each one on its own sheet of heavy-duty foil.
  10. Continue cooking the onions until tender. Place the cooked onions on top of each pork chop.
  11. Seal the foil into a pouch with the seam at the top so no liquid escapes. Place the pouches on a baking sheet.

  1. YES, I will love this pork chop … and I’m sure you know what’s happening in our kitchen … it’s now the 2nd time this week that we are preparing almost the same dishes 😁. We have just made an onion and curry sauce for our pork chops – they are now in the fridge for 24 hours before we put them on the fire for a good old South African braai!

  2. You always make pork chops look delicious! Sometimes the ones I buy are tough. Perhaps I am not cooking them right. Thankfully, I have your delicious recipes to try!

    • I usually don’t buy regular pork chops. I like to buy a pork loin when it goes on sale. Then I slice it into 1” thick pieces and freeze them 2 in a bag. I actually pay less that way because the pork loin is on sale. I get a lot of meals out of one pork loin. Thank you for your kind words Betty and have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I love pork chops, and yours couldn’t be more delicious looking! You use a method that’s unfamiliar to me, and that’s always a plus. I love hearing about new ways of doing things.

  5. I’ve made the observation, and pointed it out to my husband, that whenever we have onions with a meal, he says, “This is a good meal.” Without fail. So one time he noticed me cooking onions, quite possibly to go with pork chops, and said, “This is going to be a good meal. I can tell.” 😛

  6. Another simple but delicious recipe Diane. I love porkchops and dislike when they dry out. This sounds like a great way to cook them and maintain that all important moisture.
