If you’ve decided to read this, then you probably already know we are hog farmers. We eat the same pork we send to market, because frankly, its basically the best ever – trust me.

Followers always ask “how do you cook your pork _______” and my answer 9/10 is “grilled on the Treager.” However, I want to be able to have a delicious pork recipe to forward to them without questioning my stellar cooking skills (sense my sarcasm?).

Now, any of our pork cooked on a smoker/grill, if not over cooked, is scrumptious. But I wanted to be able to cook pork inside (especially when its 0° outside this winter) and love it as much as grilled pork. I found a pork chop recipe that is cooked in the oven and was liked by all members of our family. I wish I had taken photos of the entire process but by the time I got the pork on the table, it was chow time.

Garlic Brown Sugar Pork Chops

4 pork chops
4 garlic cloves finely chopped (OR minced garlic)
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoons butter
Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. Lightly season pork chops to liking with salt and pepper.
  2. Rub garlic and brown sugar on both sides of the chops and place into a square baking dish.
  3. Pour melted butter over top.
  4. Bake on 350 for 20-25 minutes or till internal temperature is 145 degrees.

STEP 4 is the most important part! DO NOT OVER COOK YOUR PORK. 145° is the RIGHT temperature to cook your pork chops to – purchase a meat thermometer. Once the pork has reached temperature, remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes. Serve and ENJOY!
