Tangy Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe

“This tasty pork dish makes a great entree and has become a family favorite over the years.” It’s lower in carbs, and the sweet, tangy sauce is fantastic served over chicken, too. Make extra if you’re having mashed potatoes. Nella Parker - Hersey, Michigan

"Very tasty and tender. Didn't change a thing about the recipe, but I baked at 325 instead of 350 only because I had other things in the oven. Will definitely make again."

"Great, simple recipe using all ingredients that I had on hand! I made the sauce early in the day (only used 1/4 tsp of Liquid Smoke) and kept it in the fridge to speed up dinner time. Worked out perfect! Also used boneless loin chops (about 1/2" thick) since that's what I had on hand. Moist, flavorful, and delicious!"
