Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Garlic Pork Chops


It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is GARLIC PORK CHOPS!

Yes, you have to turn on the oven so this might be better served when the weather is cooler. However, 25 minutes shouldn’t heat up your house too much if you’ve got a hankering for something different and EASY. Serve with cheesy, garlic mashed potatoes or a spinach salad. I keep several packages of this soup mix in the cupboard. This one’s great for throwing together at the last minute, even if it means you throw frozen chops into water to quick thaw. No, ahem, I’ve never done this before. 😉

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

  1. Love quick and easy. Sounds so good. Wonder if it would work with boneless chops since my husband won’t eat anything off a bone lol. Thanks for the recipe.
