Baked Pepper Sage Pork Chops are an easy, delicious, savory main dish that can be served on a date night or a weeknight.
These Baked Pepper Sage Pork Chops are so easy that I made them on a weeknight with ingredients from my pantry, which means I save money and save a frustrating trip to a crowded grocery store after work.
This is a recipe that I came up with on the fly for a weeknight dinner. Yet it is impressive enough to serve for company or for that special someone on a date night.
This is a favorite recipe of ours, and I sometimes tweak it depending on what I have on hand. For example, on another weeknight I served it with sautéed onions and spinach cooked in the same skillet that I used to brown the pork chops. After baking I added them back into the skillet with the spinach and onions. If the pork chops are not thick, you could just cook in the skillet only.
And this recipe gets even better because these pork chops are low fat, low carb, and low calorie, and depending on your brand of spices, can be gluten free, which means it fits into most healthy eating plans. Serve with fresh vegetables to keep the meal low carb, or serve with your favorite potatoes or rice recipe.
If you like this recipe, be sure to follow me on:
- 2 large bone-in pork chops 1-inch thick
- freshly cracked black pepper to taste
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
- olive oil
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Season both sides of pork chops with all black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, poultry seasoning, dried sage, and cayenne. In a large skillet over medium high heat add oil. When oil is hot, add pork chops and cook on one side for about 3 - 5 minutes or until seared and browned. Turn and cook on the other side and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes until that side is browned. Place in an oven safe baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes. (Please note that cooking times can vary depending on the size and thickness of the pork chops.)
