Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • In a 9x13 inch baking dish, toss tomatoes, mushrooms, garlic, and olive oil with salt and pepper to taste. Mix lightly with hands to coat all ingredients with oil, and spread the tomato-mushroom mixture to the edges of the dish, leaving the center free for the pork chops.

  • Combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, cumin, ground coriander, oregano, marjoram, thyme, rosemary, sage, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, ground paprika, sugar, and crushed red pepper in a bowl to make a spice rub.

  • Sprinkle the pork chops with the spice rub, working the rub well into both sides of the meat. Place pork chops in the center of the baking dish, surrounded by the tomato and mushroom mixture.

  • Roast in preheated oven until the pork is no longer pink in the center and mushrooms are tender, about 45 to 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a chop should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Transfer pork chops to a serving dish and top with roasted tomato-mushroom mixture and all pan juices to serve.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning combined with 1 1/2 teaspoon of Soul Seasoning for the individual herbs and spices in the rub. These blends are often available at warehouse, grocery, and dollar stores.

Fabulous recipe! I used the Italian Herb and Soul Seasoning blends instead of mixing my own as the cook's note suggests. I also added red onion as suggested by another reviewer. My own twist came with adding chunks of summer squash to the vegetables. My absolute favorite part of the dish was the flavor of the roasted veggies. This is definitely a keeper! Read More

although this recipe was not bad I felt the "sauce" was very watery and sis not taste much like garlic. Also my pork cjops were very very dry. The veggies did turn out good though. Read More

Very good flavor but a bit runny. I did add cream of chicken soup to thicken a bit. Other additions were zucchini wine and onion. Read More

AWESOME! Thank you for another way to get some vegetables into my husband and he LOVED it. My modifications: 1 lb of boneless chops 2 zucchini 1 pkg mushrooms and 1 big tomato. Chopped up all the veggies put them in a bowl together and tossed them with olive oil salt pepper and Italian seasoning. Put them around the outside of the pan. Seasoned the chops with seasoning salt Italian seasoning and Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb. This combo covered most of the seasonings except the red pepper which we didn't want anyway. Because I had much less meat I cooked mine at 350 for the first 30 minutes and 425 for the last 15 to keep from overcooking. It was perfect. Served it over brown rice with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese over the top. My veggie averse husband asked me to put it in our regular rotation. Leftovers today were even better! Read More

Very good. I used thin cut pork chops so I would use thicker ones in the future. I would also like to try different vegetables since my fiance isn't a big tomato or mushroom fan. Read More
