1. One Pot Southern Pork Chop Dinner
For our first pork recipe, we’ve picked something pretty straightforward. This will be a great starting point for cooking pork if you’re a beginner to the meat!
It’s a one-pot recipe as well so you know it’s going to be easy and will result in a minimal amount of washing up, which is always a bonus in our opinion.
The pork is cooked with celery, potatoes, onion, and green bell pepper and flavored with condensed tomato soup.
2. Dry-Rub Grilled Pork Chops Over Cannellini Greens
If you want your pork with a healthy dose of vegetables on the side, this is a great recipe to choose. It includes veggies such as beans, artichokes, and spinach and they’re all flavored with garlic, paprika, and pepper to give them a little extra flavor.
The pork is seasoned with Greek seasoning and grilled for around eight minutes on each side. This seasoning tastes great with pork and you’re sure to love the flavor profile!
3. Sheet-Pan Ranch Pork And Veggies
We love the colors in this dish and how great they look together when placed on the plate! If you want more than just different shades of green from your veggies then this dish will deliver.
The veggies included in this dish are yellow squash, zucchini, red bell peppers, and red onion and the different flavors and textures are perfect together.
The pork is seasoned with packet ranch mix with a little Worcestershire sauce added.
4. Sauteed Pork Chops With Apples
Apples are one of the most common flavors that are matched with pork as the sweetness of the fruit really complements the flavor of the pork perfectly.
If you’ve never tried the combination of pork and apple before, we highly recommend giving this recipe a try.
The recipe calls for a homemade sugar and spice rub to be made in order to season the pork. Both the pork and apples are cooked and served in chicken stock and white wine sauce.
5. Pork Chops In Creamy Mushroom Sauce
This is another one-pan recipe and it’s a quick one too as it can be ready and on the dinner table in around 30 minutes. There’s no marinating involved as the seasoning and sauce will give you all of the flavors you need.
The pork is seasoned with salt, pepper, and paprika before being seared in a pan.
The creamy sauce is made from mushrooms (see also “Best Morel Mushroom Recipes“), buttons, whipping cream, and chicken broth and you’ll find that the pork chops will become tender and moist thanks to the sauce.
6. Jamaican Jerk Pork Chops
Add some Caribbean flavor to your pork with this recipe for Jamaican jerk pork chops. Jerk seasoning can be used for a variety of different meats and dishes and it works just as well with pork as it does with anything else.
The seasoned pork is served with a variety of different peppers and you can add a side of rice as well if you wish. There is also a peach sauce that works wonderfully with the other flavors.
7. Pork Milanese
Unlike the other pork recipes we’ve introduced so far, this recipe calls for your pork to be breaded. We love making this recipe because it calls for the pork to be pressed thin and pounding them with a rolling pin is always fun!
Once your pork is thin enough, coat it in the breading mixture and then cook in a skillet for a couple of minutes on each side. The pork is then served with some parmesan cheese, greens, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
8. Puttanesca Pork Chops
Puttanesca is a common Italian sauce that can be used for a number of different dishes such as spaghetti. It also works great with pork and will add some Italian flavor to your meat.
The sauce is easy to make and consists of anchovies, cherry tomatoes, olives, capers, and white wine. You will need to crush the tomatoes to make the sauce but this is very easy to do.
This is a pretty quick recipe to make as it will only take you 30 minutes!
9. Crock Pot Pork Chops (With Gravy)
We’re big fans of Crockpot and slow cooker dishes! They usually require minimal prep time and their combination of low heat but longer cooking time ensures that all of the flavors are released and that any meat is made tender.
This recipe is no different as you’ll find that your pork will melt in your mouth after the Crockpot has finished working its magic. The creamy sauce is due to using both mushroom and chicken soup with a little beef broth in there too.
10. Pear ‘n’ Fennel Pork
Pear and fennel may not be the first two flavors people think about when it comes to pork but this recipe will show you that they should be (see also “15 Best Pork Steak Recipes“)!
The pear comes courtesy of pear nectar instead of the actual fruits and it’s mixed with maple syrup and nutmeg to make a delicious sauce.
The pork is sauteed in the sauce and with onion and fennel. Serve with some potatoes and more veggies for a complete dish.
11. Grilled Pork Salad With Strawberries
If you’re looking for a lighter meal that involves pork then why not a pork salad? The pork is seasoned with a mix of coriander, ginger, and brown sugar and roasted in a skillet in the same manner as many other recipes on this list.
Once cooked, slice the pork and then make the salad. This consists of strawberries, mixed greens, and cheese.
12. Maple-Mustard Pork With Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Cauliflower
Mustard is a great accompaniment to subtle meats like pork and this recipe makes great use of it by combining it with maple syrup. This combination of flavors is sure to impress anyone you serve this dish to.
You will need to marinate the pork in the maple syrup and mustard for several hours before cooking so make sure you take this into account. However, once this is done the meal is quick and easy to prepare.
13. Grilled Hawaiian Pork Chops
Pork and pineapple have long been good companions. Although debate often rages about Hawaiian pizza, it’s not because ham and pineapple are a bad match!
This recipe will remind you of exactly how good pork and pineapple are together. You will need to marinate the pork in a soy sauce and pineapple juice mix first and then grill both the pork and pineapple rings.
14. Pork Banh Mi Lettuce Wraps
Banh Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich and this recipe takes inspiration from that dish but isn’t a direct copy. There’s no bread in this version, for example, as this has been replaced by delicious lettuce wraps instead.
The filling of the wraps includes sliced pork, radishes, rice noodles, carrots, and a variety of different seasonings and sauces.
The pork needs to marinate before being cooked so remember to begin your prep early to allow the flavors to sink in.
15. Acorn Squash And Pork Chops Sheet Pan Dinner
Just look at the list of flavors in the title of this dish! Squash and cranberries make this a perfect winter dish but you can eat it at any time of the year and it will be delicious.
No marinating is required so you can have this meal on the table in 30 minutes. Load up the plates with acorn squash and enjoy!
