i forgot my grill is broken and bought chops for sunday dinner confused

can i oven cook them? have never done anything other than grill them plain & don't really know what else there is to do with them

I'd seal them by frying first then oven. They'll probably be juicier than grilled.

Oven cooked in a marinade works quite well

lucysmam Fri 24-May-13 19:31:53

any idea what sort of marinade?

how long should i cook for?

i'm guessing somewhere around half an hour on 180º idea really though

My DM has cooked them in orange juice with sliced onions for years, think it was in a late 70s/early 80s M&S cookbook. Last weekend we had them in cider with chopped leeks and apples, yum.

Half an hour sounds good to me, DM has a habit of cooking them much longer...

I always cook pork chops in the oven.
Cook them for about half an hour on one side, then turn them over, put a spoonful of apple sauce on them and cover with grated cheese.

thanks very much for your help!
(relieved i can still do something with them) smile

Pork chops
apple sauce
stuffing mix

Put thin slices of potato in the bottom of a baking dish with salt pepper and a bit of oil to stop them sticking.

Put chops on top.

Cover the top of the chops with apple sauce.

Cover the apple sauce with stuffing made from a packet.

The apple will caramelise the potatoes.

Pork chops are really good in the oven with marmalade. Just literally cover the chops with marmalade and you're done. Gives a really nice sweet & sticky sauce.

You can't go wrong with pork and apples but this is also very good - pork chops with creme fraiche and mushrooms, Delia's recipe.

My mum used to braise pork chops in gravy with onions and chunky carrots - they were fantastic!

Dust with flour, dip in beaten egg and then roll in dry Paxo sage and onion stuffing mix and bake for about 40 mins - mmmmmm!

Noooooo! Do mine, do mine! <needy>

not sure there's enough paxo in the cupboard to do yours, sorry!!

we will try it out though, am bound to forget again before we manage to replace the cooker grin

oh singaporeswing I never heard of marmalade.. I will try that.
Just a boring one from me - I mostly make gravy and slow cook them in the oven. They are nice.
