Grilled pork chops are basted with a sauce made with apple juice, brown sugar, and ginger.
These Saucy Brown Sugar Baked Pork Chops have convinced me to make them in the oven more often. They are tender, moist, succulent and perfectly delicious tender morsels of pork and that brown sugar sauce? Divine!
Oven baked pork chops are fast and easy, you simply pop them in and let them cook while you prep the rest of the dinner. This is my favorite pork recipe! (of course, because it’s sweet with garlic, how can you lose?)The time has come my friends, to enjoy pork chops like they have always been meant to enjoy. Tender. Juicy. Succulent. Does this sound like the pork chops that you ate growing up? Of course it doesn’t! Our parents had to cook the ever living heck out of pork and we ate shoe leather as children. Mr Magpie actually wouldn’t eat pork chops until the new recommended pork cooking temps came out. We honestly didn’t eat much pork the first ten years of our marriage!
