Marinated BBQ Pork Chops

I hope you all had a good weekend and enjoyed the warm weather like we did.  Our yard is now being blanketed with leaves and we've been having exceptionally nice weather for the last week ~ weather like we should’ve had in June!  It’s absolutely gorgeous out there this fall with all the different colors of leaves on the trees.

But now for the reason of this post:  saucy pork chops.  We really like pork chops and I prefer mine thick and juicy; saucy and tender.  

Pork is leaner and healthier than it used to be but may not contain enough fat to remain succulent ~ this is when marinating comes to the rescue.  This is a simple marinade that is not too sweet.  It’s easy to make with ingredients you most likely have on hand.    

This BBQ marinade makes some sticky and delicious chops.  I bet your palate will fall in love with these saucy chops!

Marinated BBQ Pork Chops 


2 tablespoons olive oil
½ cup cider vinegar
½ cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon seasoned pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon celery seed
4 (6-ounce) pork chops

Stir together first 10 ingredients and mix well.
Place pork chops in a plastic bag and spread sauce over all sides.
Marinate in refrigerator for1 hour or overnight.
Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Drain and reserve marinade.
Place chops in skillet and brown on both sides.
Add reserved marinade.
Cover pan and simmer on low heat until chops are cooked through, about 30 minutes.

  9. Did someone say saucy??? :) I'm in!!!

  10. I know this is good! Almost my mom's recipe that she made so many years ago. I still make it and my boys now make them in their home. Really good Pam!!!

  11. We are big pork fans at our house and I usually brine my before baking. This marinade would sure add a lot of flavor.

  12. I know this post is about the great pork chops but those mashed potatoes stole the show for me! Great plate of food, Pam!

  13. Pork and BBQ are a wonderful pair! This sounds delicious.

  14. Hi Pam,
    I will be trying this this weekend, I wanted something different to try while the kitchen is a mess with canning apple butter. I always want something easy when canning.
    Your recipes always look and sound so good.

  15. Hi Pam, sorry I've been doing slow lately. I am surely will try this out on my chicken this weekend. Can't wait till then.
    Have a great day, dear.

  16. Darn, We just put chops on the grill and I bet this sauce would have been great. Great idea. Next time, Pam.

  17. Oh, Pam, your chops look fabulous! I almost always marinate them before grilling...and your recipe would be a family pleaser :)

  18. I have some pork chops in the refrigerator and I was looking for some new recipe to prepare them. I mostly marinate pork chops in a olive oil-garlic-rosemary marinade but I want something new - I just found. Thanks

The pie I threw at Mark made a terrific mess, but a blueberry pie would have been even better, since it would have permanently ruined his new blazer, the one he bought with Thelma. But Betty said bring a key lime pie, so I did."
