Absolutely delicious take on pork chops. The chops really benefit from the bacon, making them moist and flavorful. You can also do on the grill if you prefer.
- 4 boneless pork chops (about 1 inch thick)
- 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce
- 8 slices bacon
- 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- On work surface layer slices of bacon side by side. Place each chop on 2 pieces of bacon (picture 2 slices of bacon as the upright part of an H, and the pork chop as the across section). Season with salt and pepper.
- Slather the chops with barbeque sauce. Flip the chops and slather the other side as well, until barbeque sauce is used up.
- Lay a sprig of rosemary on each chop (letting the ends hang over the edge, for easy removal before serving).
- Wrap bacon slices tightly around each chop.
- Prepare broiler pan (or any roasting pan with a rack), by spraying surface with cooking spray.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest part of the meat should register about 150°F
- Turn oven to broil and broil on each side until bacon is crisp.
- Let chops rest for a few minutes. Remove rosemary sprigs before serving.
- If desired, serve with additional warmed barbeque sauce.
- Note: To cook on grill, cook over direct heat for about 5 minutes per side, then transfer to indirect heat and continue cooking until internal temperature is 150°F (about 30 minutes).
We have a winner! I am not a 'lives for bacon' gal but DH loves it so I gave this recipe a try. I used bone in chops as a personal preference and because they were about 3/4" thick I jacked the temperature to 425 for 20 minutes. Otherwise I followed the recipe. It was just perfect with the bacon nicely done but not at all burned and the pork still moist. This recipe will be made frequently. I also had a slice of onion with it. Thanks for posting!

Love this recipe! I used pork loin chops-after saucing and wrapping my husband grilled them! Really moist which almost never happens with loin chops! Fast recipe to put together-bonus! Made for CQ2014
|My dh was over the moon. He absolutely loved this recipe. I used pork tenderloin, which I flattened in this recipe, it worked great. Otherwise made exactly as written. The pork was flavorful and very tender. We had a wonderful meal along with old fashioned mashed potatoes and browned carrots, thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
