Gordon Ramsay’s Baked Pork Chops
March 23rd, 2009 by Foodie

These Pork Chops are tasty and go well with bread. Easy to cook and ready in under 30 minutes if you know your way around the kitchen.

This recipe comes from Gordon Ramsay’s Fast Food and can also be seen on youtube. I’ve added the youtube video to the end of the article for your convenience. Thanks to TheTimesOnline for posting the video!

Ingredients for pork chops:

  • 4 pork chops, about 9oz each
  • a little olive oil
  • few thyme sprigs
  • few rosemary sprigs (leaves only)
  • 1/2 head of garlic separated into cloves (unpeeled)
  • sea salt and black pepper

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion (peeled and minced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (seeded and minced)
  • 1 red chili (seeded and minced)
  • 7oz cremini mushrooms (trimmed and finely sliced)
  • 14oz can chopped tomatoes
  • sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp sugar



Heat your oven to 400 F. Place the pork chops in a large, lightly oiled baking dish and scatter the thyme sprigs, rosemary leaves, garlic cloves, and salt over the top. Drizzle with a little olive oil and bake for 20 minutes or until pork chops are cooked through. Make the sauce while your waiting.


Heat the olive oil in a wide pan and add the onion, red bell pepper, chile, and mushrooms. Stir over high heat for 3-4 minutes until the vegetables begin to soften. Tip in the tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper and add the sugar and a splash of water. Simmer for 10-12 minutes until the onions are tender and the tomato sauce has thickened. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

Putting it all together:

Take the pork chops out of the oven and let rest in a warm place for 5 minutes. Pour any pan juices into the sauce and reheat. Ladle a generous amount of sauce over the chops to serve.

Done and done! Under 30 minutes? Only if you’re fast.

    My family who are very selective on what they eat. They almost never try anything new. I made this Pork dinner of yours and they loved it! Thank you Gorden Ramsey for adding flavor once again back into our happy little home. Much success to you & your family.

    My wife doesn’t usually doesn’t care for my cooking, but tonight she is sick so I checked out what recipes were here for pork chops and headed for the kitchen. It is a hit, my first attempt at a Gordon Ramsay recipe and the wife loves it. Thanks Gordon.

    Just wanted to say this was my first time using a Gordon Ramsay recipe and it turned out great. In the video Ramsay describes the sauce as hot, I would recommend using two chilies to add some bite. Some other notes, I only used about half to 3/4 of the onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms as described in the recipe. Great recipe!

    I made this one as a special dinner for my husbands homecoming so I wouldn’t have to spend to much time in the kitchen instead of with him and I had all the ingredients. It was perfect!! So easy and delicious!

    I had a lot of left over sauce, because I made a double batch. The next night I used it for some baked fish. Also amazing!!

    Horrible camera work. I’d like to be able to see him doing the work, instead of the camera panning in and out, sometimes just showing him cut off at the waste, etc.

    should have watched video first; I just chucked everything in pan and didn’t put garlic under chops; was still nice even though my sauce was runnier than Gordons

    That’s why I created this site. The videos are pretty hard to follow, but the food is delicious. Someone had to make the recipes more accessible, and since no one else was doing it, I figured I was the perfect person for the job. :)

    I can’t wait to make this tonight. I have not missed a Ramsey show and have all his cookbooks. I borrowed one to a friend and am now regretting it, :( This meal looks fantastic and I know my family will be pleased. My husband loves coming home to a Ramsey dish. Thank you chef Ramsey! You’re truly my cooking inspiration.

    200 Celsius, 400 Fahrenheit. It’s actually 392 degrees Fahrenheit, but people were complaining about the wonky temperature, so I just rounded it up to 400.
