Barbecue Skillet Pork Chops

"I found this recipe in our local newspaper, and tweaked it just a bit to fit my tastes. It is a fantastic, easy, no-sweat dish to make in the summer because it doesn't require heating the oven up. We ate it over cooked egg noodles, with a side of cooked broccoli, and a salad. The sauce is just divine!! The leftovers are also good cold for a quick lunch. Yummy!!:)"

    You are so right, Manda - the sauce is DIVINE! I plan to make up a batch by itself and freeze for use in other recipes and on the grill. And the chops turned out very juicy and tender. Instead of noodles or mashed potatoes, I served the chops and sauce with red beans and rice (1 box of Zatarain's - makes up in the microwave in 25 mins). The sauce ran over into the red beans & rice and it was sooooo YUMMY! I've definitely added this one to my cookbook.

    This was the best pork chop recipe ever! It was so easy and the pork chops came out so tender and tasty. The sauce was great over egg noodles.

I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
