Yield: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. boneless pork chops (about 1/2″ thick)
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 c. barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

 

Directions:

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil.  Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper.  Add pork chops to the skillet in a single layer and cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  2. Meanwhile, make the “Crack Sauce”: In a medium bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, brown sugar, lime juice and garlic powder.
  3. When the pork chops are golden, add the” Crack Sauce” to the pan.  Bring sauce to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium, cover the skillet with a tight-fitting lid and simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes more.
  4. Garnish with parsley.  Serve immediately.
