Oven BBQ Chops

Take it easy

Sundays are special days at least I think so. It's a day to forget the past week if things didn't go right, a day to reflect on that which did and it’s a day to forgive or rectify the things that didn't. Sundays are a day to rest if Iam tired, to play if in the mood and a day to spend quality time with those I love. It's also a day to reward.

Some days, I need quiet time in the kitchen cooking all day, and there is no greater reward. Some days I'd rather be spending the day doing something else.

The following recipe is really a good one, a reward for you and your family and it's also easy. Make a BBQ dinner without barbecuing. Purchase four thick cut pork chops, a couple of ready-made side dishes from a local caterer or the deli along with a bread choice and you're ready to go.

Oven BBQ Chops

4 thick cup pork chops
4 thin onion slices
4 thin lemon slices
4 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons ketchup
1/4 cup water
    Season the pork chops on both sides with pepper. Add a little oil to a large oven proof skillet, heat on medium high and brown the chops on both sides. Remove chops and wipe away any oil. Return the chops to the skillet. Top each with a slice of onion, the lemon slice, a tablespoon each of brown sugar and ketchup. Add the water to the pan and cover with a tight fitting lid or foil.
    Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for 1 1/2 hours.
    That's all there is to it.
