        Yes, you do need to preheat. The original recipe calls for browning the pork chops for 5 minutes each side in a skillet and then baking in an oven at 350° for 15 minutes in the skillet if it’s oven safe or in a baking pan if not. If your skillet is Teflon coated and\or has a plastic handle it isn’t oven safe.

    I was confused too, so I clicked on the link to the “recipe adapted from” and it took me to the receipe where the rest of the instructions can be found.

    This looks yummy. In fact I might just try it tonight for supper.

    Made this tonight for dinner. Apparently Med/High is too hot on my stove. Just about the time I went to turn my pork chops, I began to smell burning sugar. Turned down the heat to cook the other side. They weren’t ruined, but I’m not sure I got the best flavor. Luckily, the juices from the cooling pork chops thinned the carmelized sugar mixture a bit, so it was easy enough to get them out of the pan and clean up. Might try again with lower heat and thinner chops, so the cooking time will be less.

    Well, as a 27 year old divorcee, I ashamed to say that I’m a terrible cook. My mother tried, but this girl here just was not into the cooking when I was a kid. Now that I’m on my own, I have to feed myself since McDonald’s is just too hard on the guts and budget. Lol

    This recipe came out wonderful for me. Easy to follow for someone uncomfortable at a stove. I also had the stove a little too high so the sugar started to burn just as I was finishing the chops, but the glaze the sugar made on them was delicious. Sweet, but not too much with the paprika and pepper.

    Thank you for sharing this. I’ll be coming back here for more easy to make and learn recipes. New start, new adventure I say!
