Tangy Barbecued Pork Chops Recipe

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
