Pan Fried Teriyaki Pork Chops

Here’s another really easy dinner recipe because LIFE. I’ve got your back mama! Teriyaki pork chops that are pan fried to a crispy brown. These are honestly so incredibly yummy. My entire family devours this meal.

Serve it on top of some rice- I’ve done white rice in the picture but you could make any kind. You could also throw in some roasted veggies too. These tender pork chops pair wonderfully with so many different side dishes.

The teriyaki sauce that these are made with is heavenly. It’s sweet and citrusy in the most amazing way. You can taste the brown sugar and soy sauce in every bite. Mmmm! I also love the orange juice flavor in the sauce. This is a solid recipe that you’ll keep coming back to and use a bunch.

How to Make Teriyaki Pork Chops

Start out by warming up a skillet on the stove. You’ll want your skillet to be HOT before putting in the pork chops. This will make that pork chop skin nice and crisp when it’s done cooking. After you’ve placed your chops in the pan, add the rest of the ingredients (except the cornstarch and water- we’ll come back to those in a minute) to the skillet. Stir it around a bit to mix all the flavors together.

Dissolve the cornstarch into ¼ cup of cold water. Then add that to the skillet to cook with everything else. This cornstarch/water mixture will add some thickness to the sauce and make it really adhere to the pork chops. If the sauce is too thick for your liking, add a little water to thin it out.

Brush or baste that sweet sauce all over the pork chops until they are cooked through. And that’s it! Seriously that easy, do you love it? I know I do!

    1. I did not sear the pork chops before adding the liquids and they came out tender. I haven’t tried searing them first in this recipe but if you do let me know how they turn out. I’d love to know! Thanks!
