Brown Sugar and Garlic Pork Chops


This is my new favorite way to prepare pork chops. Slightly sweet, and plenty savory. Delicious!

  • 4 pork chops (I prefer bone-in, but any kind will work)
  • 1 tsp. (at least) Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Brown Sugar
  • 2-4 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup water

Rinse the pork chops and place in a baking pan.


Sprinkle with Salt and pepper. Sprinkle with a small amount of cinnamon. Mince up the garlic cloves and place on top of the chops. Next, mound approximately 2 Tbs. of brown sugar on top of each chop.


Pour in the water around the pork chops.

Bake at 400 until the chops test done. (the length of cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chop and whether they are boneless or bone-in. Mine were a thicker, bone-in chop, and I baked about 40 minutes.- Always test to be sure the juices run clear- especially near the bone.

I covered mine for the first 20 minutes- and then uncovered for the final 15-20 minutes.


We like to dip these in brown mustard.
