St. Louis style pork chops

In our house we don’t eat pork chops as often as we’d like simply because we haven’t found a lot of good recipes for it. I know that some people believe that pork chops need nothing more than a little salt and pepper to be fantastic, but since I grew up in the south, to me pork only came barbecued, so I am used to having some additional flavor.

Recently I stumbled across pork chops baked in a light homemade type of BBQ sauce using thick, bone-in chops that sounded like something good. The sauce is loosely based on the St. Louis style and has just enough of that flavor to really make the pork chops a little different than the standard fried chops.

One thing that I would change is not searing the pork quite as hard in the skillet before baking so that more of the flavor soaks into the meat. Not to say that this isn’t good. Serve it up with your favorite baked beans and you have a dinner that the entire family will be sure to love.
