Based on "New Mexican Pork Chops" from "The Complete Round the World Meat Cookbook" by Myra Waldo.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim the fat from the chops and pound slightly to flatten.
  2. Mix the salt, pepper, ginger and flour. Dip the flattened chops, both sides, into the mixture.
  3. Heat the oil in a deep skillet (with an oven-proof handle) and brown the chops on both sides. I find a 12-inch seasoned cast-iron skillet works best.
  4. Add the onions and garlic, and cook 5 minutes. If you want to, pour off any remaining fat.
  5. Mix together the salsa, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, sugar and water; add to the skillet.
  6. Cover and bake in a 375 degree oven 50 minutes, removing the cover for the last 10 minutes.
