My family's favorite pork chop recipe with a barbecue sauce containing chili sauce. Good served with roasted potatoes and carrots.
- 6 pork chops, 1 inch thick
- cornstarch or flour
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 4 medium onions, chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup chili sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1⁄8 teaspoon celery salt or 1⁄8 teaspoon curry powder
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Have a baking dish ready that is large enough to hold the pork chops in a single layer.
- Trim fat from chops and slash edges to keep them from curling during browning.
- Dust chops with a little cornstarch or flour (or shake in plastic bag with a little flour or cornstarch; shake off excess).
- Brown chops in oil in a large skillet or electric fry pan.
- As they are browned, place chops in a single layer in the baking dish.
- Drain excess fat from skillet, leaving about 2 tablespoons.
- Add the chopped onions and brown.
- Add the rest of the sauce ingredients and blend together.
- Stir and scrape bottom of pan to get browned bits.
- Pour sauce over chops.
- Cover and bake for one hour, or until chops are tender when pierced with a fork. Adjust cooking time if using thinner pork chops.
- Remove cover for last 15 to 20 minutes to thicken the sauce.
- Baste occasionally.
The barbecue sauce tasted awesome and was very simple to make. I halved the recipe and added 2 cloves minced garlic into the sauce ingredients. My chops were thin so I only had to bake 30 minutes. My BF and I really enjoyed this and I will definately make again!
These are really good. The meat just falls apart because they are so tender. The sauce is on the sweet side but we enjoyed the flavor. Thanks for posting. :)
