  • 1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 7 bone-in pork loin chops (1/2 inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions
  • 4 large garlic cloves, sliced
  • 5 medium carrots, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • Optional: Hot mashed potatoes and chopped fresh thyme


  1. Combine the first 8 ingredients; rub over both sides of pork chops. In an oven-safe Dutch oven, brown chops in oil for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove and set aside. In the same pan, saute onions and garlic for 2 minutes. Add carrots and broth. Bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat; return chops to pan. Cover and bake at 325° until meat and vegetables are tender, 1-1/2 to 2 hours. If desired, thicken pan juices. Also if desired, serve with potatoes and sprinkle with fresh thyme.

Can you freeze Braised Herb Pork Chops?

Cool pork and vegetable mixture. Freeze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through slowly in a covered skillet until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, stirring occasionally.
