Brown Sugar Glazed Pork Chops

Tender and juicy bone-in pork chops are smothered in a delicious marinade and cooked to perfection.


  • 4 thick cut bone-in pork chops
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter divided
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme, optional


Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Season pork chops with salt and pepper, to taste.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add pork chops, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side; set aside.

Melt remaining tablespoon butter in the skillet. Add garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and add to oven-safe baking dish.

In warm skillet add brown sugar, honey, oregano, thyme and basil until well combined. Pour over pork chops.

Place pork chops into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 145 degrees F, about 20-30minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with thyme, if desired.
