If you like pork, you have GOT to try these pork chops. I am NOT a pork lover (except for bacon, of course) but I LOVED these chops. It does take some time to make the barbecue sauce. I made the sauce the day before, put the chops in to marinate the next day. They came out so tender and delicious. The Neeley’s have a winner here!
The Neeley’s Barbecued Pork Chops
4 center cut pork chops (not thin sliced or the super thick ones)
Neeley’s seasoning, recipe below
Neeley’s barbecue sauce, recipe below
Rub the seasoning into the chops on both sides. Put the chops in a ziplock bag and add two cups of the barbecue sauce. Marinate in the fridge all day. Grill until chops arae cooked through ~ we grill ours for about 30 minutes on medium. If you want more saucy chops, reapply the sauce after cooking and before serving. The sauce recipe makes enough for the marinating and a little extra to apply before eating. The seasoning makes quite a bit so I put the extra in the freezer.
1 cup paprika (two bottles of paprika is a little more than 1 cup ~ I used it all)
3 1/2 tbsps sugar
1/2 tsp onion powder
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. I put all the extra in a ziplock and put it in the freezer for next time.
Neeley’s Barbecue Sauce
2 cups ketchup
1 cup water
6 tbsps brown sugar
5 tbsps white sugar
1 1/2 tsps black pepper
1 1/2 tsps onion powder
1 1/2 tsps dry mustard
1 1/2 tsps paprika
1/2 of a fresh lemon, juiced
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp light corn syrup
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to prevent sticking. After sauce comes to a boil, reduce heat to low and let it simmer, uncovered, for at least two hours.
Makes 4 pork chops.
