Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust

Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust – what can I sayI love pork! It is such a versatile meat that can be nice and lean and make nice change from the chicken. Did you know that you can eat every part of a pig? I know, I’m digressing slightly here. Back to the subject now.

This Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust is one of our family favourites. It’s one of the dishes I used to watch my mum make for us. It later became firm part of my own family kitchen. One of the great things about this dish is that once assembled, it pretty much takes care of itself. I like to make it for Sunday lunch when I don’t fancy spending a lot of time in the kitchen. It is also great when it’s too hot to cook anything on the top of the stove but you fancy “proper” cooked dinner. We are this sort of family who eat roast dinners in the Summer almost as often as in Winter so you get what I’m on about 😉 but again digressing… 😉

Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust

The important thing to remember when making this dish is to tenderise the meat (give it good old bash so to speak). 🙂 This makes all the difference when it comes to your final product as meat will be gorgeously tender and succulent plus it will cook quicker too! I suggest covering your meat with cling film for the tenderising to avoid bits of meat splattering everywhere.

You might find it a bit odd using mayonnaise in baked dish but I promise you, it will not disappoint. Mayo together with natural meat juices will create the most wonderful and scrummy sauce, you won’t be able to get enough of. Trust me! 🙂

We like to serve this Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust with simple buttered jacket potatoes and green veg but it goes really nicely with rice or mash too. The choice is yours.

Baked Pork Loin Chops with Carrots & Cheesy Crust

Yield: 4


  • 4 pork loin chops
  • 4 carrots (peeled and thinly sliced)
  • 1 onion (peeled and thinly sliced )
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika powder
  • 1 tsp mixed herbs
  • 4 heaped Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 100g grated cheese (mature cheddar works well here)
  • Spring onions to garnish
  • salt, pepper


  1. Prepare large ovenproof dish (roughly 34x24cm) by lightly oiling it.
  2. Spread sliced carrots evenly at the bottom of the dish.
  3. Follow by layer of thinly sliced onions.
  4. Sprinkle the veg with paprika and mixed herbs.
  5. Trim the fat of pork loin chops if you wish and give every slice a good bash with rolling pin or meat tenderiser to make it nice and thin. Season each slice with salt and pepper.
  6. Place seasoned steaks over the vegetables.
  7. Spread mayonnaise over the meat in thick and even layer.
  8. Sprinkle grated cheese.
  9. Cover with aluminium foil and bake at 180°C for about 1 hour after which take the foil off and bake for another 15 min for the cheese to create nice, brown crust.
  10. Sprinkle with spring onions and serve with baked potatoes or rice and veg.

    This looks tasty I am not a fan of baked beans if I’m honest I always say it’s because my mum fed me so many when I was a child but looking at your photos may just entice me into giving them another try#brilliantblogs@_karendennis

    Oh I am such a fan of meals you can pop in the oven and leave to take care of themselves – bliss!! I must say I am intrigued by the mayonnaise idea…but I can well believe it works. And hey, I’m such a mayo fan, I’d happily put it in anything!! 😀 Thanks for linking up to #CookBlogShare! Eb x

      Thanks Eb! I love one pot, cook yourself without much bother type of dinners especially when the weather is so much nicer! I’m a bit of a mayo fiend myself 🙂 and here it works so beautifully creating this rather lush sauce so I think you wouldn’t be disappointed 🙂 xx

    It sounds delicious! I think I’ve come across another recipe with mayonnaise in in the past but I’d forgotten about it completely. This definitely makes me want to have a go at something like this as I’m sure the sauce in it is amazing. Thank you so much for sharing with #CookOnceEatTwice x

    I am always on the lookout for simple recipes for the family. I love that this a one dish meal that comes together with little effort. The use of mayo is a great idea, not only to create juices but to keep the pork moist.

      Thank you Thao! I’m the same, always on the lookout for easy family dinners. 🙂 The pork ends up beautifully moist and tender here and I do agree it is thanks to top layer of mayo. I hope you enjoy it if you decide to make it. 🙂
