Gordon Ramsay’s Baked Pork Chops
Mar 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.
