Barbeque Pork Chops – Quick and Easy Barbequed Pork Chops Recipe
4 pork chops, about 1 inch thick
1 cup barbecue sauce – your favorite
Juice of 2 lemons
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
Coat each pork chop with the barbecue sauce. Put them in a single layer in a large Teflon skillet. Put the skillet over the burner and bring it up to a medium-low heat.
When the bottom of the chops begins to brown, turn them over and continue cooking, turning again until each side of the chops has a crust. Pour some of the lemon juice over each side of the chops and let them absorb it.
Serve on a warmed platter with extra barbeque sauce on the side.
Food For Thought – These pork chops are also excellent broiled.
Heat the broiler to low heat and move the broiler pan as far from the heat source as possible. Just brush the barbeque sauce over the seasoned chops, rather than heavily coating them with it.
Be sure to line the broiler pan with foil to make turning them easier. Squeeze with the fresh lemon juice on both sides before serving.
Good To Know – The pork chops will stay moist if cooked over a low flame with this recipe.
A high heat would most likely burn the barbeque sauce before the meat could properly cook.
If you don’t want to pay much attention to them, add 1/4 cup of water with 2 or 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to the skillet, cover it and simmer over a low flame.
The liquid will keep the pork moist, and the excess can be boiled off when the chops are almost done.
Remove the cover and increase the heat until the liquids are reduced. Serve and enjoy.
There you have it! Quick and easy barbecue pork chops with a lemon twist that is family pleasing for a weeknight meal.
