This recipe is so good and very easy. I really like it for this time of year because cold weather equals crock pot time around here! And the pork chops are so tender and delicious. The BBQ sauce gives it a heartiness that is perfect for fall and winter.
You can use bottled BBQ sauce. Or you can go over to Stolen Moments and make this sauce. (Which is what I did this time) It’s really good and very easy to make. Or if you’re feeling really adventurous, you can make the sauce below. It comes from the Susan Branch Summer book and let me tell you, it is really good!
Kitchen Sink BBQ Sauce
2 T. olive oil
1 med. onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
14 oz. ketchup
1/4 C. worcestershire sauce (or Woozy, as we call it in our house because we can’t pronounce worcestershire)
1/4 C. soy sauce
1/4 C. beer
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. cider vinegar
1/2 t. dry mustard
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. tobasco
Saute onion & garlic in sauce pan til limp
Add rest of ingredients, stir & bring to boil
Simmer 15 minutes
Store in fridge
Now for the easy peasy pork chop recipe:
However many pork chops you want (I used 4)
1 onion, sliced
1 C. BBQ sauce
1/3 C. honey
Put pork chops in crock (mine were frozen)
Pour BBQ sauce over chops
And because Brian’s grandma gave us a bunch of green peppers, I’m gonna chop some of those up and throw them in towards the end. Yum!
I had fully planned on making baked mac & cheese and potato wedges to go with this. (We really love our carbs around here!) However, a friend dropped by and I ended up sitting on the porch for close to an hour talking to her, so I just threw some taters in the microwave and we had baked potatoes. That’s another great thing about this being a crockpot recipe. I had the luxury of just being able to sit and chat instead of rushing her off so I could tend to dinner.
I do realize that almost every time I put a picture of something I made on here it ends up looking rather gross, but I promise you, these chops are good! The BBQ sauce has a tendency to darken and thicken in the crockpot. But the pork chops are fall-apart tender and really yummy.
