Saucy Chops

Author: Cooped Up Chick  //  Category: December 2014

Not even going to apologize. Starting to feel like ya’ll wouldn’t believe me anymore anyway. I am sooooo neglectful.

I WILL promise to try and catch up on all that I have been cooking and baking (and eating). I have been taking pictures all along the way and I have a few recipes added to my ‘Favorites’ and this is one of them.

I have had so many people ask for the recipe I felt it was my duty to share on here…and then I can just direct everyone here instead of writing it out every time. Yup. I’m just lazy. 🙂



6-8 boneless pork chops (I prefer center cut)

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup onion, chopped VERY fine or pulverized in a food processor

1/2 cup EACH: ketchup, BBq sauce, french OR catalina salad dressing, honey

bacon, chopped (or like me….cut up using kitchen scissors. SO much easier)


sprinkle of garlic powder and dried chilis (optional)



Start by bringing your chops to room temp and adding some S&P


In a large skillet (I like my cast iron) fry up bacon bits. Scoop out bacon with a slotted spoon leaving bacon fat in the skillet. Over medium heat brown pork chops in the fat (pig on pig action!), 2-3 minutes per side.


In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients and pour over chops.



Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5-8 minutes (or until a thermometer reads 145 degrees). Let stand 5 minutes before serving.



I have never tried this but the original recipe states it freezes very well. We never have leftovers to test this theory.

This has become one of our go-to recipes. I love it with creamy whipped potatoes and sugar snap peas (cooked with garlic and bacon fat) but it would be delish served on an old slipper with a side of nails.
