Lemon Pork Chops - BeMyOwnChef Recipes

This is an easy tasting way to prepare boneless pork chops. The sauce is wonderful over pasta or rice. For chicken lovers, you may use chicken thigh instead of pork chops. This dish makes great for a family dinner or an elegant company entree.


6 (4 ounce) pork chops, about ½ inch thick each. (You may use debone chicken thigh if you like)
1 lemon
3/4 cup tomato ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar


1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees C.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown pork chops on both sides. Remove chops and place them in an oven tray or shallow baking dish.

3. Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, and wine vinegar. Pour mixture over pork chops, spreading to cover evenly. Cut 6 thin slices from the lemon, and lay one slice on top of each pork chop. Squeeze the juice from the remaining portion of lemon over the chops.

4. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes at 170 degrees C, then uncover and bake for another 15 minutes more. Serve 4 - 6 person

I am intrigued by your sauce. It looks really good, and I could see myself making it with pork chops or chicken. Yummy. Good job!
