Garlicky Baked Pork Chops

Something Different

I wanted to make pork chops for dinner, but I wanted that garlicky taste to come through, which it did. If you prefer to use less garlic—or garlicky flavor that isn't quite as strong—then I suggest using less and chopping rather than grating. Grating your garlic allows you to get a stronger flavor than you would through pressing or chopping.

Personally, my family and I say, "The more garlic, the better!"

20 min

35 min

55 min

Serves 4 - 6 people

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, sliced thick
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprka
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cajun spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 3 large cloves garlic, grated
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Hellmann's mayonaise
  • 6 pork chops, 1-inch thick

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375° Fahrenheit.
  2. Cover a roasting pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  3. Place the slices of onion on the bottom of the roasting pan. An alternative is to use a rack in the pan.
  4. In a bowl large enough to coat a pork chop, put in breadcrumbs, paprika, Cajun spice, and fresh ground pepper. Mix and set aside.
  5. In a small bowl, combine the grated garlic, mayonnaise, and mustard. Mix well.
  6. Bush a pork chop with the mayonnaise mixture on both sides; then press it into the breadcrumb mixture. Place the pork chop on top of the sliced onions. Continue doing this for all chops.
  7. Bake in the oven for approximately 35 minutes or until the meat reaches 145°F.
  8. Place the pan under your oven broiler for 5 minutes to crisp them up a bit.
  9. Remove from the oven, serve, and enjoy.

Thanks, Rachelle, nice to meet you. I do garlic pork chops too :) To be honest with you I'd add garlic to chocolate cake if I could get away with it. LOL

Liz Rayen from California on February 21, 2020:

Hi Susan!

This recipe looks amazing. Because I do Keto, I would eliminate the rice (although I love wild rice) and instead of bread crumbs, I would substitute with almond flour. I can't wait to try it.. I actually got hungry reading the ingredients..ha!

Hope all is well with you!

Barbara Tremblay Cipak from Toronto, Canada on February 21, 2020:

This is right up my alley. I love pork and I adore garlic. Thanks for the recipe, Susan, and have a great weekend.
