Sweet-and-Sour Pork Chops

My family is one of several pork producers in this area, so I'm always looking for pork recipes. This one's easy to make because you don't have to brown the meat before baking. That's one of the reasons I like it so much.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour
  • Makes
    6 servings


  • 6 pork loin chops (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Place pork chops in a 13x9-in. baking dish. In a bowl, combine pineapple juice, ketchup, honey, vinegar, mustard and salt. Pour over the chops. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake about 30 minutes longer or until the meat is tender. Remove chops to a serving platter and keep warm. Strain pan juices into a saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water; add to pan juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Serve immediately over chops.

    My family enjoyed this recipe. I used smoked pork chops instead of a center cut chop. The sauce kept the chops moist and delicious! When using smoked pork chops cut the cooking time to approximately 45 minutes. I will be using this recipe again!

    Easy preparation but just an average meal. Nothing to get too excited about.

    My husband didn't like it so much ... I agree with the previous reviewer that it was a little bland. Maybe pineapple chunks would have made it more interesting?
