Place the chops on rack in a baking tray. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover chops with onion slices. Pour water in bottom of pan, making sure it does not touch the chops. Cover the tray with aluminium foil or tight lid and roast for one hour.
Cut into one chop to check if its done to your liking. When chops are done all the way through, remove foil or lid and return to oven for 15 to 20 minutes to brown slightly. Watch they don't burn when browning.
They turned out very moist and delicious. This is the first time I've ever made thick pork chops that weren't dry. I gave the recipe 4 stars, however, because the taste is a bit bland. I will use this method for baking pork chops from now on, but plan to add more seasonings next time. My husband loved them just the way they were, but I'd prefer a little more flavour. - 29 Sep 2008

I've never been a fan of pork, because I always find it dry. However, these chops turned out very moist! I did marinade them over-night for more flavour. We'll definately use this dish for guests. - 29 Sep 2008
