How to Roast a Pork Chop

Updated February 21, 2017

One or more pork chops can be roasted in the oven in less than 45 minutes. Because of the relatively fast cooking time, the pork chops won't brown by roasting alone and should be browned first. Pork chops can be cooked alone in a casserole dish or on top a bed of stuffing mix. If cooked with stuffing, the juice from the pork will add flavour to the stuffing and the meat will be moister.

Preheat the oven to 177 degrees Celsius.

Heat 2 tbsp of vegetable oil in a skillet.

Brown the chop on both sides in the skillet, at a medium-high to high temperature. Lightly salt and pepper to season.

Butter the bottom of the casserole dish and add the pork chop.

Cover and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the chop is cooked through.
