1 1/2-1 3/4 lbs
( bone in, 3/4-inch thick rib chops, trimmed of fat)
canola oil, divided
garlic clove, minced
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Using 2 t. oil, brown the pork chops until beginning to brown, about 1-2 minute per side. Transfer to a plate.
- Using last teaspoons of oil, cook onion until softened (3-4 minutes). Add garlic; cook about 30 seconds more. Add juice and cook until it's nearly evaporated, 30-60 seconds. Stir in bbq sauce. Return chops to pan, turning several times to coat with sauce.
- Transfer pan to the oven and bake until done. Recipe says 145 degrees on instant read thermometer, 6-10 min, barely pink. (I don't want any pink in my chops. Bleck.) Turn them over, only once, during cooking time to produce more tender chops.
