After making Butter Baked Chicken a few days ago, I decided to try a slightly different version with some thin cut pork chops and make Garlic Butter Baked Pork Chops. Oh my gosh, y’all! My family devoured them and wanted more!
My very picky 8 yr old ate 2 pork chops! Two!! This is unheard of! These Garlic Butter Baked Pork Chops are a a definite keeper in our meal rotations.
I’m not a big fan of pork, but the rest of my family enjoys it. After my Butter Baked Chicken was a huge hit, I decided to try it with a variety of meats. The first one was a twist using thin cut pork chops. I swapped out cream of chicken for cream of mushroom. And, I decided to make it garlic butter melting the pan instead of just plain ol’ butter.
I saw a funny meme on Facebook the other day:
You don’t let a recipe tell you how much garlic to add. You measure that with your heart.
If you only knew how true this was for me. HA!
These pork chops were fantastic! They were fork tender. Plus, if you make mashed potatoes, the gravy created on top is just perfect to put over the mashed potatoes.
After making these a few times, I think the thinner the pork chops, the better this dish is. I tried it with thicker pork chops, and it just isn’t as tender. Now when I make this recipe, I always make sure to look for the thinnest pork chops I can find.Print
