This is my daughter DeLena's recipe. She normally does hers in the microwave, but I love them in the oven. It adds something to the barbecue flavor if you use the oven.

Ingredients

4
thick pork chops, about 5-6 oz each
3/4 c
cider vinegar
1 c
bottled barbecue sauce
1/4 c
brown sugar (if you like a sweet sauce - optional)
2 Tbsp
minced onion
2 tsp
minced garlic
2 tsp
fresh ground black pepper
a little salt

Step-By-Step

1Season the chops with salt and 1 teaspoon of the pepper. Place them in a shallow baking dish. Preheat oven to 350°.
2Stir together the vinegar, barbecue sauce, (brown sugar if used), onion, garlic, and the remaining black pepper. Pour over and around the chops.
3Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove foil and continue baking for an additional 20 minutes, basting occasionally with the pan sauce, until chops reach an internal temperature of 160° or they are no longer pink inside.
4To cook them in the microwave: Use a microwave-safe baking dish. Follow directions as above, but do not cover with foil. Cover with waxed paper or a microwavable vented lid. Microwave about 3 minutes at a time, basting with the pan sauce after each 3 minutes. This usually takes about 12 minutes, or 3 minutes per chop. Check frequently to see if pink is gone inside, and do not cook too long or they will get tough.
