I made 1/2 the recipe using sweet red onion following the rest of the directions. I found this should be made yes in a shallow pan also the chops should fit in the pan tight. For when you add the water and it`s a large pan you have an excess amount of liquid at the end result. Where if I had time I would have reduced stove top or added a roux to thicken and serve with the chops. Apple juice would be a delish substitute for the water. This recipe did have lots of sweet tangy flavor. Do baste a few times to keep the onions moist. Easy and very good!
The family liked this a lot. I used half beef broth and half chicken broth instead of water and I didn't have to baste as I filled the liquids to just cover the onions and lemon. I used BBQ sauce sparingly instead of ketchup. I took member -RITA-'s suggestion and made a roux to thicken the remaining liquids into a delicious gravy. The family asked me to make this very simple and easy entree dish again.
We enjoyed this dish. It was simple, smelled great while it was cooking, tasted great, and was a nice presentation. Thanks echo echo.
This recipe was really good! I made as posted except I left off the lemon slices (I didn't have any). The chops had very good flavor and smelled wonderful as they were baking. Next time I think I will brown the chops a little before putting in the baking pan ~ just personal preference. Thanks for another winner, eebrag!
