Less than 30-minute, easy to prepare, darn delicious Pan Fried Barbecue Pork Chops. A ‘one-pan’ dish that is perfect for any time of the year!
Valentine’s Day will be celebrated a few days from now in the United States… and I will be serving one of my husband’s favorite dishes: these super flavorful Pan Fried Barbecue Pork Chops.
Yep, it works well as a “guy dish” — on account of the meat (although I am also a huge fan — and my daughters as well!)
How to Make Pan Fried Barbecue Pork Chops
These quick Pan Fried Pork Chops are easily prepared by seasoning both sides of the chops with salt and pepper.
Then, the pork chops are place into a hot pan with oil and browned for about 2-3 minutes per side.
Next, a mixture of barbecue sauce, ketchup, spices, vinegar, brown sugar, and mustard is pour over the chops, brought to a boil, and left to simmer together for about 5 minutes.
There you have it, my friend! A dish fit for a king, ready to be devoured down to the very last bite.
Simple, right? Oh… and quick, too, because the entire dish takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. A real present for both the cook and eater!!! 😉
Serve our Barbecue Pork Chops with a side of steamed, baked or roasted baby potatoes or sweet potatoes, and a fresh salad or steamed vegetables… and just wait and see how your honey will look at you.
Our Barbecue Pork Chops also work great as a ‘one-pan’, no-fussy weeknight meal.
I kept the recipe easy and delish, hearty, and desirable to a man’s eyes. 😉 After all, my honey deserves this type of TLC and way more.
But that’s not all! We are serving a Nutella Tart for dessert… Yaasss!!!!! Pure indulgence is the order of the day here.
Well, Happy V-Day to my hubby as well as to each one of you. Enjoy your day!!!
