A Simple Recipe Packed With Flavor

This brown sugar pork chop recipe is excellent for those of you who don't prefer to cook recipes that require ten or more ingredients. They too are full of delicious flavors. Depending on how long you cook your pork chops in the oven the brown sugar will caramelize and even form a crispy crust if you broil them in your oven for two-four minutes.

Brown Sugar Pork Chops

Ingredients

1/3 C brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
4 boneless or bone-in pork chops

1. Combine in a small mixing bowl the brown sugar, salt, and pepper.
Rub the brown sugar mixture on all sides of each pork chop. Place your pork chops on the foil or parchment lined baking sheet. Bake them for thirty-five minutes to an hour or until internal temperature reaches at least 150 degrees.

How to cut broccoli into florets 

I am going to be posting videos on how to cut or slice certain vegetables for those of you who don’t know how or not entirely comfortable working with a knife. I know that I have mentioned this several times in some of my articles I have a complete understanding of what it’s like to be fearful of using knives as I used to be scared of them myself. But I am not as fearful anymore.

My hope and prayer is that these videos will encourage you to conquer the fear of using a knife.

To begin I am teaching you my way of cutting broccoli into florets.
