Moms’ Glazed Pork Chops

Recently there was a recipe on a blog I love, What’s for Dinner Moms? and I just had to try it. It makes me laugh that her kids call her “Moms” instead of just “Mom!” Now I usually play more with recipes but this one was so close to what I would have done myself I decided to make it with only one minor change. Next time I’ve decided to do a couple of things a bit differently but I’m so glad I decided to try this recipe! The pork chops were yummy and I’ll definitely be making them again! They are Moms’ Glazed Pork Chops.

The recipe as posted is exactly the same as what I used except I used a generous 1/2 teaspoon of salt in the brown sugar/spice mix. I really think salt helps bring out the flavor in food so I use it in most of my cooking. Heck, even sweet baked goods usually have salt! But if you’re watching your sodium intake just use “Moms’” recipe as written.

I couldn’t believe how few ingredients were needed to make the pork chops! The picture on Moms’ blog was so gorgeous I thought it would be a complicated recipe. It’s not! You need the pork chops, of course. She had 4 thick chops while I had thin cut ones but the only difference that would make is the cooking time required.

Some brown sugar, cayenne pepper, paprika, pepper, and garlic powder were all she used. I added, as I said, the salt.

I patted the chops dry and laid them on a baking sheet. This was just to make coating them easier for me. I sprinkled coating on one side and patted it in then turned the pork over and sprinkled the other side, patting the coating in. I also patted coating all over the edges of the pork chops.

I heated a large skillet over medium low heat until it was nicely heated. I didn’t want to crowd the chops. Then I poured in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. I thought about using less because my chops were thin but realized the surface area would be the same thin or thick.

I gently laid the pork chops in the skillet, making sure they weren’t crowded. Because my chops were thin they didn’t take long to cook. In fact, I think thicker pork chops are definitely the way to go for this recipe so the coating has more time to get that gorgeous, dark brown color of Moms’.

Mr. Comfortable was really in the mood for cheesy sides so I made Au Gratin potatoes (I admit, from a box because I was tired) and broccoli and cheese. Altogether it was a really wonderful dinner and Mr. C has requested it on the rotation!

The only changes I would make would be to make a little more of the coating so I get a thicker layer, use a tiny bit more cayenne since we like it spicy, and, as I said, I’d use the thick chops. Other than that, you can’t go wrong with this recipe!
