Recipe by Loretta in Louisiana
This recipe is in "The Best of Country Cooking 2000" from Karen Collins, Wauseon, Ohio. This is her description: "The best compliment a cook can receive is to be asked for the recipe of a dish she's served. That's happened almost every time I've made these pork chops. The sauce gives them a great barbecue flavor." Preparation time does not include marinating time:
- 2 cups soy sauce
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tablespoon dark molasses
- 6 pork chops, 1 to 1-1/2 in. thick
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup chili sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground mustard
