Oven-Barbecued Pork Chops

Need a little summertime flavor? Try this swift recipe and enjoy a "barbecue" indoors. Make it a meal: Serve with coleslaw and cornbread.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds bone-in, 3/4-inch-thick pork rib chops, trimmed of fat
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

Step 3

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add orange juice and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir in barbecue sauce. Return the pork chops to the pan, turning several times to coat with the sauce.

Step 4

Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the pork chops are barely pink in the middle and an instant-read thermometer registers 145°F, 6 to 10 minutes. Serve the sauce over the pork chops.
