Reviews for Sweet Barbecued Pork Chops
"I have made these twice. The first time I went by the recipe and the second time I left out the brown sugar and added unsweetened applesauce. Both were delicious."
"Couldn't be much easier! Followed the recipe exactly, but cut it in half. Was worried there might not be enough sauce, but there was plenty. Great flavors. Terrific for weeknight dinners."
"Flavor was excellent.. I only gave a 4 because I did not trust the recipe (cooking pork) for the times, and overcooked them. Will definitely try again, and trust the recipe!"
"Wouldn't change a thing! My whole family loved it and I am definitely making it again."
"I use boneless pork sirloin, and they are really tender. Some pork is rather tough, and it not cooked long enough will test your dentures. I dredge the pork in flour, salute in EVOO for about 5 mins ea. side. Remove them a keep warm. Into the pan I add chopped onions and red bell pepper and sweat this down a little, add some carmelized onions and continue by adding the pork back into the mix and some veggie broth which you can make yourself with carrots and celery ahead of time.Let this come to a simmer for at least one hour, Then test the pork with a toothpick to see if it is done. Works for me....."
"Just made this using chicken. Side of fried noodles and Fridays green beans. 3 of us are 1.5 pounds of chicken. Had to make more for my daughter who comes home late from work. Fabulous!"
"I've been using this recipe ever since i got it. We absolutely love it!!! The only thing I did differently is that I baked them in the oven at 250 for an hour tightly covered after browning them in a skillet. They come out very tender where you can cut it with a fork."
"My whole family likes this recipe. The barbeque sauce is delicious. We have tried it with the pork and also chicken and it is delicious with both!"
"I have tried many recipes but this one is the best the sauce is realy good my kids loved this one i made 2 batches and it wasnt enough. I did just as recipe called but after sauce was done i poared it over the chops and baked 30 min covered to tenderize the meat and another. 30 min un covered so the sauce would thicken it was amazing i will definetly do this again"
"Fantastic barbeque recipe!"
"Absolutely awesome! Didn't have any honey, but used 1/4 molasses instead. The family loved it! Will definitely make again."
"Oh my gosh, is this good!!!! Can't wait to try it with chicken! Served it with TOH's Creamy Mac-n-cheese, and Country Baked Beans. What a lovely combination!!!"
"We really enjoyed the sauce in this recipe. I did think the pork itself needed a little seasoning like salt and pepper. I will definitely make the sauce again. I will probably try it with chicken next time. Overall very easy and tasty. I love the sweetness of the sauce."
"Excellent recipe. Sauce was delicious!"
"I just tried it !! SIX STARS !!!EASY - loved it too.CHANGES IT UP A LITTLE1 - Marinaded it in a small portion of the sauce for a half hr . Then discarded the sauce from the marinading bowl for sanitary reasons . Very little sauce was thrown away .2- Chopped onions + let it sit for 10 mins because this improves the potency in the onions + garlic when You use it in any recipe .3 - Browned it for 3 mins on each side like the recipe says in "Canola Oil " ...after this I washed out the pan and used "Olive oil " for 30 secs per side . Olive oil loses its goodness when in the pan too long and canola is generally a good + cheap cooking oil to work with .4- After all the browning was done put it on very low and let it simmer for 20 mins5 - Quickly gave the frying pan a light scrubbing + rinsing so nothing was caked on .6 I froze the remaining portionsIf YOu haven't tried this , I think You will find this very easy to prep , cook + clean after as well as a very enjoyable dishTHANKS FOR THE RECIPE !!!-Knyvet ( the ORIGINAL DUMB BATCHELOR )"
"I have used this sauce recipe for chicken for years. My family LOVES it. I never thought to use it with pork chops. You can bet I will try it tomorrow."
"Yum! The sauce was excellent and the pork chops were very tender. Will definitely make this again."
"What a hit at my dinner table last night ... absolutely delicious! Served over white rice from my rice cooker. Sauce was unbelievable simple ... center cut chops tender .... WOW! Rave reviews from my 4 guests."
"This dish was unbleepinglievable! All I had was some pork loin that I had the butcher slice into inch thick chops, so I sliced that into strips. Also, I added Vidalia onion salad dressing to the mix and an extra helping of chopped sweet onion. Then, I let it simmer on almost low for 30 minutes covered. Served over rice with a side of buttered green beans and a breadstick rolled in butter and parmesean cheese. Dessert was sliced watermelon. Thanks Taste of Home!"
"Delish!!! Had for dinner tonight w/broccoli and rice!!!"
"My family loved these. I had to make two batches, 1 to eat and 1 to freeze."
"These taste terrific and we loved these! I love that the recipe made eight servings...lots of leftovers!"
"The sauce is super yummy! We didn't have any French dressing, so I made it without and it was excellent. Next time I'm going to try to either bake the dish in the oven or try the crockpot...to see if the pork chops can absorb some of the yummy sauce."
"Wonderful sauce! Flavorful and sweet - everyone LOVED it! Would be excellent on chicken."
"This is a good recipe for my husband and I. We can eat some and freeze some for later. Very good!"
"Great tasting, fast recipe. My 2 year old even mixed the sauce!"
"Simple and tasty, just the way I like it. YUM"
"EXCELLENT! The french dressing makes it taste amazing!"
"This is my first revue. My family and I LOVED this. We changed it a little. Took out the chopped sweet onion and used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet Vidalia Onion bbq sauce and less ketchup. It was AMAZING. We are making the sauce again to cook up some chicken wings in the slow cooker. YUM!"
"This is the second time I have made this recipe although I don't use the French dressing or all the brown sugar it calls for. The chops turn out delicious! I brown them then put them in the oven to finish. It smells delicious, too.!"
"Some of my family are huge fans of barbecue while others? Not so much. However, EVERYONE loved this! Someone even commented that the sauce tastes just like the kind you get from a McRib. Personally I think it tastes even better than that. This is an AWESOME recipe I'm going to continue to make over and over again."
"Very easy and delicious! Sauce is great. Actually I used a honey barbecue sauce so I didn't have to add the honey just the brown sugar and french dressing. I browned the chops and then put them in the crockpot with the sauce over them and cooked on low for about 4-5 hours and they turned out tender and delicious! For sure a keeper..."
"These pork chops were fantastic and the sauce was awesome. I will make this again."
"My husband absolutely loved this and my 5 year old liked the flavor but she doesnt like the texture of pork chops but i think the sauce would work well with chicken too. This is a keeper!"
"Loved this! Hubby loved it. Kids didn't care for it. It's so easy, and the combination of ingredients is wonderful. I will definitely make this again. I rarely go back for seconds of pork, but I did tonight!"
"This was great. So nice to be able to freeze half and have for another meal later."
"In my opinion, porkchops just need a sauce. They tend to be BLAH without one. This had nice flavor and was VERY fast to make. All ingredients are ususally on hand so I will make this again."
"I was a little unsure of the combination of the sauce ingredients, but went ahead anway and boy, was I pleasantly surprised! The kids were hollering for seconds. Great recipe for pork!"
"I was out of sweet onion and french salad dressing so we omited them, It still turned out great and the meat was so tender. Will have to try with all the ingredients next time!"
"Wonderful! And so easy. My b/f requests this every week or so. Thanks for posting, Susan!"
"Fantastic, I followed the recipe exactly and was not disappointed. It was not too sweet and the pork melted in my mouth."
"Was very tasty! But hubby did not like it. So I probably wont make it again. He said he really like the sauce but he just doesn't really like pork all that well. And be sure to put both the honey and brown sugar in! They are BOTH necessary!"
"This recipe was delicious. I used really thin boneless pork chops and they turned out so good. I will make this again for sure!"
"i never rate ANYTHING! but i have to on this recipe :) i have a six and three old and a husband who is just as picky, but for the first time they all LOVED this dinner! my sixyear old asked me if i can make this dinner every night :) i am so happy i finally found a recipe that they all loved! if u have picky eaters this is a dinner everyone will love!"
"Like another reviewer, my loin chops weren't tender after cooking on medium heat, covered for about 25 min. It was moist, but definitely not tender - will try pork tenderloin or chicken next time. Agree that the sauce is great!"
"My bf loved it. He says it was the best pork chop he had, better than any restaurant"
"We LOVE this recipe!!! The sauce is PERFECT....I've used it on chicken as well, and it's just as delicious. :) Thanks!!"
"This recipe was a hit with my family of 5, including 3 kids ages 5, 8, & 10. I will definitely make this again as the recipe is so simple. Thanks for a great one!"
"WOW!! This is super easy to make and so very delicious!!"
"Hi, I just made this for my husband and I and we loved it.It's so easy to make and so flavorful."
"Excellent is all I can say! It was so easy but tasted like you fussed over it for hours!"
"Excellent, cut my own pork chops from a half pork loin, very simple, simmered for approximately half an hour, the chops were so moist and tender, definitely a keeper."
"I had to cook pork chops for almost 30 minutes but otherwise very good and will be making again."
"My family loves this recipe. I always keep some on hand in the freezer for when I don't feel like cooking."
"Awesome recipe! I have made this several times for my family of 9. I have done it in the oven and in the crock pot, browning the meat first, then adding the rest of the ingredients. The Sauce is JUST RIGHT!"
"This has become a standard in house that does not like pork!"
"I loved the sweet flavor of this pork chop.. Im wondering if cooking it on lower heat for a little longer would make the meat more tender? I might try this next time"
"Whole family enjoyed. Even my son who "hates" everything!!"
"I will make these over and over. They turned out perfect. It is really hard for me to not overcook pork chops so this recipe is definately for me!"
"These pork chops were fantastic. They are so fast and easy to make. I have very picky eaters and everyone when back for seconds. Love it!!!! I will repeat them ofter. Thanks they are really a 10."
