Pork is fairly easy to make in the oven. Meals like Pork Tenderloin with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Capers and Pork over Warm Kale and Asparagus Salad take less than 30 minutes to make. They are great options for busy workdays.

These smoky bacon baked pork chops are another quick dinner you can wrap up after work. It requires no marinating and very minimum prep work. To make it even faster, cook the bacon beforehand.

To make a full meal out of it, any vegetable slaw will pair well with the pork chops. I served them with Thai vegetable salad. You can just open up a salad kit and toss things together to save more time.

By the way, these baked pork chops are gluten-free and low in carbs.  Super duper yummy and healthy!

  1. Why do 99% of the people always make comments about how good it looks or sounds instead of waiting until they have actually tried it and then leaving a comment. It takes forever to find any comments about how it really taste or tips and tricks to making it.
    1. Hi, what tips and tricks are you looking for? If you have any questions about this recipe, I'd be happy to answer them. And I agree - it'd be great to see comments from those who actually made this recipe. But sometimes people just don't write comments.
  2. I've never cooked pork chops much, but this recipe makes me want to try again. It's probably been a year or two since they've been on my table. Yum!
  3. These look simply delicious, although as an English person living in France I have no idea what mesquite seasoning is or what I could replace it with ?
    1. Hi Tricia, mesquite seasoning is a seasoning mix that's usually used for grilling meat. You can make your own though. Here are the ingredients: 1 1/2 tablespoons paprika, 1 teaspoon ground cumin, 1 teaspoon brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon onion flakes, 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/2 teaspoon marjoram, 1/4 teaspoon sage, 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard seed, 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder. Just combine everything and season the pork. Hope that's helpful. :)
