Chili Barbecue Chops Recipe

Chili Barbecue Chops Recipe

In her West Monroe, Louisiana kitchen, Tonya Fitzgerald jazzes up store-bought Italian salad dressing with barbecue sauce and chili powder to make the easy marinade for these pork chops. They're simmered on the stove-top for just a few minutes, so they're on the table in no time.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Cook: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (3/4 inch thick and 7 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing, barbecue sauce and chili powder. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork chops. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, brown chops on both sides over medium heat; drain. Add reserved marinade. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5-7 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches 160°. Yield: 4 servings.
