A very quick, easy Italian-inspired pork chop. Great if you're just looking for something a little different. This is just a little something that I threw together and it turned out fantastic! Now it is one of my husband's favorites! Eat and enjoy!

  • Whisk basil, onion powder, and seasoned salt together in a bowl.

  • Drizzle half of the balsamic vinegar over pork chops and spread to evenly coat; top with half of the basil mixture. Flip pork chops and coat with remaining balsamic vinegar and basil mixture. Place 1 tomato slice on top of each pork chop and let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pork chops are cooked through, 35 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C). Remove baking dish from oven and allow pork chops to sit in the dish for 10 minutes.

This is a very simple dish using food you would most likely have available in your pantry. I was curious about what the balsamic vinegar would do. It seemed like a lot of seasonings so I just sprinkled them lightly over the chops after coating them with the vinegar. My pieces were not really thick so that's why I adjusted the amount. These turned out tender not dry and very tasty. I will probably make these again. Read More

I tried it as in the recipe tonight but found the basil too strong. I also didn't care for the tomatoes - but then I don't care for baked tomatoes. I will probably make this again because I like balsamic vinegar and pork and it is super easy to make but maybe use a mixed Italian herb seasoning instead of basil. Be warned this is pretty salty although this was fine for my husband! Read More

These pork chops were easy and delicious. My husband raved about them. I used small steaks with the recipe too and they were just as good. Read More

This was a wonderful change from our typical rotation of BBQ and breaded pork chops. Presentation aroma texture and taste are all very appetizing. Because of another review I hesitated to use all of the herb mix on the chops but I used at least half of it. I did not have tomatoes so I placed 2 slices Italian Stewed Tomatoes on each chop (no extra liquid.) Read More

I prepared half the recipe for just the two of us. It was easy but I've tasted many pork chop recipes I liked better. I probably won't be making the recipe again. Read More

I liked the hot spicy taste but it may not be for everyone. The pork chops had an "Italian" taste to them though. This recipe is a great alternative to serving pork chops using either BBQ sauce or mushroom soup. The young grandkids found it too spicy so next time I will go much lighter or even leave off the spice mix on a few of the chops destined for them. Read More

This was so tasty! My kids loved it too... I just cooked one with no tomato for the child who doesn't like tomatoes. Very easy to make. Definitely will be making this again! Read More
