Baked Asian Style Pork Chops

Here’s an easy pork chop bake that is perfect for weeknights!  I love when a recipe calls for ingredients that I already have on hand.  This sauce is very flavorful and also works well on chicken.  I serve it over brown rice with steamed broccoli on the side.

Prep Ahead Plan:  Mix up the sauce and marinate the pork overnight.  Bake it when you get home from work the next day! 

I love a recipe that doesn't require dirtying ANY dishes other than the one you're baking it in!!!

Baked Asian Style Pork Chops

2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons lemon juice
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup ketchup
5-6 center cut pork chops, trimmed (I use thinly sliced pork chops)

1.     Spray a 9 X 13 baking dish with cooking spray. Mix soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, brown sugar, and ketchup right in the baking dish.
2.     Place pork chops in the baking dish and turn them to coat in the sauce.  Cover and refrigerate overnight OR bake immediately at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.*
*We like our pork chops very thinly sliced.  If your pork chops are thicker, bake them for a longer time.  Usually 40-45 minutes works best but make sure the internal temperature is 160 degrees.
