I call this recipe Oven-Baked Pork Chops Fay style! It may not be a traditional Jamaican recipe, but most everything I cook has Jamaican flavour. In this case, the meat is marinated in true Jamaican fashion, overnight with seasonings – onion, garlic, salt and black pepper. Do you have to marinate the meat for hours? Of course not, but don’t expect it to taste as good to the bone as when you do. This recipe was highly requested by my nephew Carey who has been waiting patiently for it to be added to this website. Carey, this one’s for you! I hope everyone enjoys my oven-baked chops as much as you do.

    Another winning recipe! I had given up on making pork chops because mine are usually so dry and tastless. This recipe gave me juicy and tasty pork chops. Thanks Faye!

    Do you think it would taste ok if I substituted with pork ribs?

      Pork ribs take longer to cook than chops. However, I’m sure if you marinate the meat and bake covered with foil until very tender, then pour the sauce over it and bake for 5 more minutes, they’ll be delicious! Blessings

      Hi Debs,
      Usually it’s one pork chop per person. This recipe is for 5 to 6 chops.

    I tried the oxtail and peas and rice with coconut cream. Outstanding. I love your videos and seasonings. I am trying the pork chops today. Thanks for your expertise. My family is enjoying the new meals.

    Do you think i can use ribeye’s steaks. My family does not do pork. Also can you do more beef and chicken or turkey recipe’s. Do you know how to do turkey wings? Thanks Love your website. Brown stew chicken was our favorite. I visited Jamaica years ago and went to this restaurant in or on Black river or creek can’t remember but I had the best deep sea crab in my life. I stayed in Mandeville at the Pete’s residents.

    Hello Miss Fay,
    I’ve tried the Curry Chicken recipe and my family loved it, Thanks so much! Going to make the pork chops and peas & rice tonight. I was wondering how I can minimize the heat (peppersauce) without jeopardizing the flavor. I love it spicy but one of the kids doesn’t…. What should I do to make it medium heat maybe????

      Sure, boneless chops will work, but you likely will not need to bake them as long so make sure to adjust the timing.

    I ask do u think I could use ribeyes steaks before. I did them in a crockpot and OMG they were so good. The only thing is before I added the sauce I poured the juice off the steaks and added the sauce for about 30 mins, my family was looking in the crockpot for more. Thank u all I cooked the steaks on hi for about 2 1/2hrs and a lil longer. Please don’t ask me why cause I don’t know lol…….

    Mrs. Fay, Wow! These are the BEST pork chops, I have ever had the pleasure of cooking and eating! My family loves pork chops and I wanted to do something differently! They wolfed them right down! I added a dash of allspice for that jerk-flavor taste! Absolutely delicious!!
