Paula Deen’s BBQ Style Pork Chops

Paula Deen's Barbecue style pork chops

This time, I followed a recipe exactly.  Shocking, I know.   The only thing I’d change if I make it again is the baking time.  My chops were a bit dry ~  but very tasty!  It is a good, quick recipe that can be thrown together and tossed in the oven so you can focus on other things.

My husband, the purist, requested less topping.  He prefers little or no sauce.  My son, the Thinker, thought he was about to bite into salsa topped pork.  His reaction was priceless.  The sweet tang of this barbecue inspired sauce is a far cry from any Southwest spice.  Paula Deen's bbq style Pork Chops

  1. >I agree with Belinda… however, can I just say… OHMYGAWHD! Those look so good. You know… Salem is not too far from Salem Oregon. I could be there in like 5 hours… save one for me.

  2. >This looks really good– at what temperature for 45 minutes? Thanks as always for all the great recipes–I have especially enjoyed the make-your-owns! (Now I just have to get around to making more of them… 🙂

  4. >oh boy these sound great…

    chops are tough because recipes never talk about thickness. a 1/2 inch chop vrs a 2 inch chop has to cook different. If you have a remote prob thermometer, cook by internal temp will fix the problem of dried out.

  5. >I am impressed it's a Paula Deen recipe but doesn't have any butter! I have a hard time with pork chops too, I tend to overcook everything. They look great though, thanks!

  6. >Sometimes the trick with pork is the thickness of the chops. It also helps to brine them for an hour or so before baking or frying them. Having said all that, your chops look and sound wonderful. Anything that looks that good is almost always delicious. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings…Mary

  7. >I never have good luck with pork chops but your picture is motivating me to give it another try. Looks great!
