A simple yet powerful recipe for delicious and juicy oven baked bone-in pork chops.
Preheat your oven to 160-180 degrees Celsius (320-350) degrees Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes (depending on thickness of pork chops).
Rinse the pork chops and dry them with a paper towel and place them in the pan.
Sprinkle the raw sugar and black pepper (and the optional salt) evenly over both sides of the pork chops, followed by the paprika.
Place the pork chops in the oven and let them bake for 15 minutes. Then turn them over and bake for another 15 minutes. Make sure you don’t go over the 15 minutes time-frame because pork chops easily dry out when left in the oven for too long.
When both sides are evenly cooked with a light brown color, take the pork chops out of the oven and let them sit for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Cover the pork chops with aluminum foil while resting.
Try to find pork chops that are about the same size. This is important just so that they can be baked evenly in the same amount of time.
Please note that you can vary the amounts of the different ingredients. If you like things sweet, add a bit more sugar. Or if you like a salty flavor, simply add a bit more salt. Keep in mind though that the soy sauce also creates a bit of saltiness and it's best to not overdo it.
I would recommend to start this recipe as stated above and apply changes when you try this recipe a second time.
