Contest-Winning Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe

Contest-Winning Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe

Sherry, honey, barbecue and steak sauces combine to give these chops from LaJuana Holland in Amarillo, Texas, a beautiful glaze and dressed-up flavor. The sauce works well on chicken breasts, too, and couldn't be much easier to put together.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup hickory smoke-flavored barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup A.1. steak sauce
  • 1/2 cup sherry or unsweetened apple juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 6 bone-in pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 8 ounces each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, steak sauce, sherry or apple juice and honey. Transfer 1/3 cup sauce to another bowl; set aside for serving.
  • 2. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill pork chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°), basting frequently with remaining sauce. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with reserved sauce. Yield: 6 servings.
