No-Fuss Pork Chops Recipe

These tender, mouthwatering chops taste a bit like sweet-and-sour pork but require little attention or time. I prepare them year-round whenever I'm on a tight schedule but still would like something scrumptious.—Sally Jones, Lancaster, New Hampshire
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (5 ounces each)
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • Hot cooked noodles, optional


  • 1. Mix first four ingredients. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat; brown pork chops on both sides. Remove from pan.
  • 2. In same pan, saute onions in remaining oil over medium heat until tender. Add juice mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Add pork chops; cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 2-3 minutes. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes before serving. If desired, serve over noodles. Yield: 4 servings.

"Very yummy. I doubled the recipe for the sauce and thickened it with cornstarch and served it as a gravy. The pork chops were tender and had a nice flavor."

"5 stars.. (the "star" rate isn't working). Added some green pepper, used only a couple of thin slices of onion (recipes call for way too much for us) and had mashed potatoes on the side. We both loved it! Added to my recipe box and will definitely make it again."

"My husband isn't usually a pork chop fan, but he loved this recipe. All of my kids really liked it too. I used white rice since I was out of egg noodles, but it worked."

"EXCELLENT and easy!!! I served them over brown rice with broccoli. I only cooked 3 pork chops and the extra onions and sauce tasted really good over the broccoli florets, too!"

"This was an easy and delicious meal. I had all the ingrediants at home -- just had to buy the pork chops. I placed mine on a bed of rice which was excellent with the taste & flavor of the sauce that was poured over. Even my husband who doesn't like onions was a fan!"
