BBQ BAKED PORK CHOPS 

One of my most popular recipes on my site is this post that talks about How to Bake Pork Chops in the Oven.

Pork chops are an affordable, protein-packed easy meal that you can feed your family and the Ohio Pork Council and I are excited to add this to your meal rotation.

Today’s recipe for BBQ Baked Pork Chops is a quick and easy recipe that uses a homemade bbq sauce or your favorite store-bought sauce to create that barbecue flavor we all love.

My family went crazy for these, especially my husband. I like to pair them with these Simple Garlic Parmesan Green Beans and Gouda Mashed Potatoes.

I baked these pork chops in the oven but you can also grill them similar to in these Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops.

You might remember my posts showing you How to Make Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker and How to Make Pork Loin in the Slow Cooker as well as this Slow Cooker Pork Shoulder Roast Recipe.

All three of these recipes show you ways to make other cuts of pork. I like rotating the cut of pork I use depending on what my family is craving. 

WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE IN THESE BBQ BAKED PORK CHOPS?

PORK CHOPS: When I make this I like to use boneless pork chops but you can use bone-in. This recipe uses 4 pork chops that are 7-8 ounces.

SPICES: These pork chops are rubbed with a spice mixture of paprika and garlic powder before adding the BBQ sauce on them.

If you have a BBQ rub on hand you can use that instead to rub on both sides of the pork chops. This helps create that extra layer of flavor.

BBQ SAUCE: I like to make a homemade BBQ sauce when I make these pork chops. If you have a favorite store-bought BBQ sauce you can use that to make this recipe even easier.

HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE BARBECUE PORK CHOPS?

First, if you are making a homemade BBQ sauce you will make that. Otherwise pick out your store-bought BBQ sauce.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place pork chops on a cutting board or on a plate.

Mix the paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small mixing bowl.

Rub the spice mixture on both sides of the 4 pork chops. Use a brush to spread the BBQ sauce on both sides of the pork chops.

Place the pork chops in a large baking dish or on a baking sheet with a wire rack.

Bake the pork chops in the oven, flipping half way through and spreading more BBQ sauce on the pork chops.

This will take about 12-14 minutes for 1/2 inch/ 1 cm inch thick pork chops, or 20 to 22 minutes for 1 inch/ 2 1/2 cm thickness or until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

Remove pork chops from the oven, cover or tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Garnishes with green onions and serve warm.

WHAT TEMPERATURE SHOULD A PORK ROAST BE COOKED TO?

When cooking pork you want to see that blush of pink inside the pork or reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.

I know a lot of people still think that pork should be cooked until all of the pink is gone, but the FDA recommends a blush of pink as safe. If you overcook your pork it will be dried out and not as flavorful.

HOW DO I STORE LEFTOVERS?

You can store cooked pork chops in a shallow airtight container in the fridge.

Pork chops will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.

WHAT SHOULD I PAIR WITH THESE BBQ BAKED PORK CHOPS?

Salads are always a nice pairing to pork chops. I love this Lemon Arugula Salad with Pine Nuts, Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad, Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing or this Everyday Italian Salad

Vegetable side dishes are another nice pairing. Some of my favorites are Mediterranean Roasted Vegetables, Turmeric Cauliflower or this Simple Roasted Broccoli

We often add potatoes to our meals like these Spicy Lebanese Potatoes, Air Fryer Twice Baked Potato or Crispy Potatoes
