Baked pork chops make for the easiest 4 ingredient dinner ever. A classic family recipe passed down from my grandmother and the only way I ever make pork chops. Gluten Free too. You only need pork chops, onions, mayo and sharp cheddar (regular or vegan, for a dairy free recipe).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using a meat hammer (or any other appropriate kitchen utensil) lightly pound the meat on both sides. (I place the meat between two sheets of plastic wrap).
Place meat side by side on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or a cast iron skillet.
Season meat with salt and pepper and then spread sliced onions over top of it. Spread mayonnaise over meat and onion and then top with shredded cheese.
Bake 35-45 minutes until cheese is bubbly on top and meat is cooked through.
If you do not like onions omit them. If using Daiya dairy free cheddar, at the end of cooking broiling on high for 5 minutes helps melt the cheese and get it to bubble a bit
