Cheesy Brown Sugar Pork Chops!

 
 
These "Cheesy Brown Sugar Pork Chops" are something different to do with boneless chops and they are scrumptious, which is like delicious plus some!!!   The flavors just really go well together and takes no time to do!  These make it look like you went to a lot of trouble, but really didn't!  They are special enough for company or a special dinner and will probably become a much request main course!    Here is what you will need:
 
5-6 boneless pork loin chops, cut about 1/2 inch thick
1/4 cup Teriyaki or soy sauce (I used Kikkoman Teriyaki)
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 Tbs. butter
1 cup shredded Cheddar Monterrey Jack cheese blend
 
Place the pork chops on a baking sheet with a lip on it that has been sprayed with nonstick spray or I lined mine with nonstick Reynolds Wrap, which worked great!   This tends get a little sticky so you must do one other the other. Evenly sprinkle the Teriyaki or Soy Sauce over each pork chop, then sprinkle evenly with the Seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne if using it.  I like the little kick it gives them, but if you don't like spicy, leave it out.
 
Sprinkle each pork chop evenly with the brown sugar.  You will need to sort of press in on the top so it stays in place.  Drizzle each one with the melted butter.   Boneless pork chops are very lean nowadays, so this little bit of butter really moistens these up and adds flavor.  Place in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes.  Remove from the oven and spoon some of the juices back over the pork chops.  They will render some juices as they cook.  Now evenly divide the cheese and place on each chop. 
 
Place back in the oven on the highest rack for about 5- 7 minutes or until the cheese is just nice and melted.
 
Plate and serve immediately!  These are really very easy, but it looks like you fussed!
