These Garlic Brown Sugar Pork Chops are full of flavor and oh so juicy. They come together super fast, which makes it perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. Sure to be a huge hit with your family.
I have never been a huge fan or pork chops in the past. Honestly I just think I have always over cooked my pork chops which left then dry and blah! Making sure you cook them to 140 degrees ensures that they are tender and juicy.
Searing the pork chops in a hot skillet first (I use a cast iron pan), not only gives it that fantastic caramelization, but adds to the savory flavor.
With just a few pantry ingredients dinner will be on the table in 30 minutes. This is sure to be a new family favorite, even the kiddos will love this one.
