Tangy Barbecued Pork Chops

Tangy Barbecued Pork Chops



My very first job was at a Carl’s Jr. fast food restaurant in Huntington Beach, California during my senior year of high school.  I got out of school early enough that year to start work at noon, and since I was entitled to a 50% discount on the food immediately before and after my shift, my mother suggested I eat my lunches at Carl’s.  I gladly took her suggestion—especially since she was paying for it—and I had a Carl’s Famous Star with cheese every day before I worked my shift.  The problem was that the managers started doing a tally each week to see how much money the employees were spending at Carl’s using their employee discount.  They even posted a sign in the break room that said “PIG OF THE WEEK” with the top three spenders listed below it.  The people who came  in second and third changed on a regular basis, but the honor of first place ALWAYS went to the SAME person.  And I’m not even one bit ashamed.  In fact, I’m kinda proud of it, and in honor of my “Pig of the Week” accomplishments, I’m serving up pork!  To make these Tangy Barbecued Pork Chops, you’ll need apple cider vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, an onion, crushed rosemary, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and 6 thinly-cut pork chops.


In a small saucepan, mix all of the ingredients except the pork.  Cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.  Remove from the stove and let cool.

Pour over the pork and marinate at least 5 or 6 hours in the refrigerator, turning the meat after about 3 hours to ensure it is evenly coated.

Cook on the grill, and ENJOY!
