These are the best pork chops. My family just loves them. The best part is, the marinade only has 2 ingredients. They are great from the skillet, oven, or off the grill. I like to make these with extra-virgin olive oil, but not needed.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix teriyaki sauce and molasses in a bowl until well combined and place pork chops in the mixture; turn chops to coat with marinade. Allow to stand at least 30 minutes (longer for better flavor).

    Advertisement
  • Spray a skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Cook the pork chops until the juices run clear and the chops are browned and no longer pink inside, about 10 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

If you are going to prepare them in the oven, grease a casserole dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

This was one of the first ways I ever cooked pork. The teriyaki sauce and the molasses work perfectly together. The longer you marinate the pork the better it will taste. I like to serve this with lap salad or vegetable fried rice. Read More

My husband said these were the best pork chops I've ever made! I marinated for 4 hours and cooked on a grill pan 10 mins per side was perfect. Thanks for a keeper! Read More

Loved the flavor from the molasses/teriyaki sauce...such a simple idea that turned out great! I cooked them on my charcoal grill basting with the sauce they were marinated in (for 1 hour). This one is definitely a keeper...simple and delish! Served with the Parmesan Roasted Grilled Corn and Simple Grilled Vegetables both from this site... Read More

Good recipe period. Loved this and will make again. You can add and subtract from this recipe like adding orange zest ect. But the basic works. Marinate longer than 30 mins. Overnight would work. Read More

I've never cooked with meat other than chicken so this was a nice easy simple-looking option for me to ease in on. It turned out exactly as easy and simple as it looked and came out pretty darn good too! The marinade only made enough for me to coat the three chops I had so I might increase the amount next time but the proportion was lovely. Read More
