Easy Caesar Chops



I'm almost ashamed to show you this recipe today as it is such an easy one that you will probably be smacking yourself on the forehead and saying, "Why didn't I think of that!" Easy Caesar Chops. Three ingredients and about half an hours baking time, and presto!  You have delicious pork chops that your family are really going to fall in love with.


Today I used bone in chops.  You could use boneless chops, but I actually prefer the ones with the bones attached. Almost like the T-bone equivalent of a pork chop. Mine are about 1/2 inch thick.  I love that tender meat that is next to the rib bone. Its my favourite part, so filled with flavour.


I always slash the fatty edge of my chops at intervals, which helps to prevent them from curling up when you cook them.  They stay nice and flat as you can see above.   I hate it when chops curl all up. They don't look nice and I think they are tougher.


Its as simple as laying the chops out in a single layer on a baking tray. I lightly season them with sea salt and black pepper.  I line the tray with foil first, which I spritz with a low fat cooking spray. This helps prevent sticking.



I spread each chop with some creamy Caesar salad dressing. You could use more, but I find a tablespoon is just about the right amount.  You don't want it to be gloopy or overly thick. Too much would totally overpower the dish.



After that you sprinkle on some grated Parmesan cheese.  Just sprinkle it evenly over top of each chop. I like to use a coarsely grated Parmesan Cheese for this. I find that if it is too finely grated it kind of melts into the dressing and you don't get as nice a finish.


Then you just pop them into the oven and bake. I like to add some clusters of cherry tomatoes on the vine to the pan for an added extra, but you can leave them out if you wish.  I like them and think they add an extra layer of flavour, not to mention some colour.


In any case I am sure that this is bound to become a favourite in your household as it is a favourite in ours.  A favourite because it is basically no fuss, no muss, and because they are quite simply delicious!  Tender, juicy and full of flavour!



*Easy Caesar Chops*
Serves 4
 

 Delicious and tender, everyone loves these! 



4 pork loin chops, preferably with the bone in
salt and black pepper.
4 TBS creamy Caesar Salad dressing
8 TBS freshly shredded Parmesan Cheese
4 clusters of cherry tomatoes on the vine (optional)


 

 Preheat the oven to 190*C/375*F/Gas mark 5.  Line a baking tray with foil and then spritz lightly with low fat cooking spray. Slash the fatty edge of the chops at 1/2 inch intervals to help prevent them from curling up.  Place them onto the prepared baking tray. Season lightly as required. Top each with 1 TBS of the salad dressing and spread it out to cover the chop with the back of a spoon.  Sprinkle 2 TBS of the cheese evenly over top of each chop.  Place clusters of cherry tomatoes around the chops on the baking tray.


Bake in the heated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until the pork is done and nicely browned.  The juices should run clear.  Place on heated plates along with your desired accompaniments and serve!




These really are quite delicious.  I have another recipe that I use which you need to dust the chops with flour etc. first, but this cuts out that step entirely and to be honest, these are every bit as tasty!  Like I said, no fuss, no muss. I am all for that!  Bon Appetit!

  1. Tried these tonight for supper. Very nice, and probably be just as good on chicken. Pudding is your Swiss roll with jam and cream. Lovely!
