  • 4 thick-cut boneless pork chops about 1-inch thick and 6 ounces each
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing I use Ken’s Steak House Lite Northern Italian with Basil and Romano
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional garnish: fresh parsley or other herbs
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a large baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel, and season on both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Place pork chops in prepared baking dish.
  4. In a large measuring cup or bowl, whisk together salad dressing, brown sugar, and Dijon mustard. Pour over pork chops.
  5. Bake uncovered until pork is slightly pink inside, reaching an internal temperature of at least 145 degrees F – about 20 minutes (use a meat thermometer to make it really easy!). I like to put the pork under the broiler for the final 3-4 minutes so that it gets a bit crispy on the top, but that step is totally optional.

  6. Loosely cover pork with foil and allow to rest for at least 5-10 minutes.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley just before serving.
Recipe Notes

Tip: This is a great freezer meal! Just place the raw pork chops in a large plastic freezer bag, pour the sauce into the bag, and freeze until ready to bake. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight, transfer pork and sauce to a baking dish, and cook according to instructions above.

Cooking Just for Two? Cut the ingredients in half (using just 2 pork chops and half of the sauce), and bake the pork in an 8-inch square dish. The rest of the cooking instructions remain the same.
