Baked BBQ Pork Chops
In Vancouver right now, and the rest of the surrounding area, we are having something that is being dubbed “The Bummer Summer.” It’s been so terrible outside, all want to do is stay in and eat comfort foods and wear a sweatshirt and curl up with tea. It’s really not been warm at all. The BBQ in my back yard is sitting with it’s cover on, teasing me, all the fantastic things that you normally eat in the Summer haven’t happened once. I haven’t the heart to go outside and turn it on, besides, it’s grey and chilly out there and I’ll get rained on. These baked BBQ pork chops are the next best thing to actually being able to BBQ them.
- 4-6 boneless Pork Chops or Pork Steaks
- 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- 1 teaspoon Black Pepper
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon Thyme Leaves
- 1 heaping teaspoon Dehydrated Onion Flakes
- 1 heaping teaspoon Paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
- 2 large Onions sliced in rounds
- 3/4 cup your favourite BBQ Sauce
- Measure out and mix all dry ingredients in a small bowl and rub Pork Steaks with them.
- In a glass or enamel baking pan. Let sit for 2-3 hours. ( If you don’t have a glass or enamel pan a foil covered pan sprayed with a non cooking spray will work. )
- Place onions evenly over the Pork Steaks and bake for 25 minutes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees.
- Remove from oven and cover the Pork Steaks and Onions with the BBQ sauce.
- Bake for another 20 minutes.
- Remove and serve immediately.
- If you’ve never cook with Cayenne Pepper before you should know that the longer it sits in a dish the hotter that it gets. If you don’t like spice very much simply remove the Cayenne, or lessen it in your rub.
- I used a bold BBQ sauce, but I think a sweeter one like Honey Garlic would really make them sing.
