I like to make these pork chops because they’re fast and really easy. The homemade sauce gives the pork a smoky, slightly spicy and sweet flavor, that beats anything out of a bottle. They’re perfect for a quick weeknight family meal. In my house, pork chops are always served with a side of apple sauce for dipping, which perfectly complements the complex flavors of the saucy pork. If apple sauce isn’t your thing and you have time, top these chops with peeled apple slices that have been sautéed in butter.
Saucy Roasted Pork Chops
- 1 tbsp. chipotle in adobo sauce (taken from a can of chipotles in adobo)
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp. steak sauce (such as A1)
- 3 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Kosher salt
- 4 pork chops, about 3/4 inch thick, bone-in
- Whisk first five ingredients together in a bowl until well combined and sugar is dissolved.
- Pour marinade into a Ziploc type bag.
- Season both sides of pork with salt and pepper.
- Add pork and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up 12 hours.
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Remove pork from marinade and pour extra marinade into a bowl.
- Place chops on a foiled lined, lightly greased roasting pan.
- Brush both sides of pork with reserved marinade.
- Roast for 10 – 15 minutes, until cooked throughout, brushing pork with marinade once or twice during the cooking process. An internal temperature of 150 degrees will give you juicy chops.
- Remove pork from oven and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
