~ Foodie Friday~ featuring ~Barbecued Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples~

Welcome to Foodie Friday hosted by our lovely Gollum @ Designs By Gollum. Please visit, as she has a host of others participants with tasty recipes for all of us to try!

My contribution for today is:

Barbecued Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples

Here I've gathered are all of my ingredients

I started with my sauce. This sauce is soooooooo good!

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

Then I seasoned my pork, and it's ready for the grill.

1teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
I used crushed red peppers, I didn't have any ground

Smokeless inside grill, always put water in the bottom to keep it smokless. When ever I cook on it, the food is always so tender. Maybe it's because the water in the bottom keeps it moist.

Almost ready for sauce and it smells delightful!

Here I have brushed on that wonderful sauce, I cheated and added a 1/8 teaspoon of dried mustard to my sauce, which made it perfect!

Here's the finish! I also had steamed cabbage, sauteed apples, purple hull peas and cornbread patties. I know a little juice from the apples is on the plate but, that's for the cornbread. YUMMY! Thanks for stopping by my first Foodie Friday, hosted by Designs By Gollum. Don't forget to stop over for a taste of the many other participant's selections. My recipe is listed below.
Barbecued Pork Chops with Sauteed Apples

Place pork chops on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray, and cook six minutes on each side, basting with 1/4 cup brown sugar sauce. Serve pork chops with Sauteed Apples and reserved 1/4 cup sauce. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.

Deb this all looks so good. I haven't had cornbread made like this since I was a child and Granny made it. That's about the only way we ever had cornbread, at her house. Good hot or cold!

bj said...

We often have fried cornbread patties...Hot Water Cornbread...
This all sounds so good....

ellen b. said...

Oh this looks fabulous Deb! Thanks for showing us how it is done!

I'm not much of a pork eater, but boy, this could change my mind! The apples sound delicious! I might be able to use my Splenda to substitute for the sugar.

I've never used an indoor grill but this looks so good...I'm tempted to try it. The recipe will work on an outside grill, too.

Bo said...

Hi Deb...first of all, I keep forgetting to tell you how cute your shelf sitter critters are in your header photo! and I have some pork chops just squealing to get out of the I think I'll try your recipe on them...yum! ;-) Bo

Amy said...

Looks wonderful and brings memories to me of my favorite Brady Bunch episode when Peter keeps saying "pork chops and applesauce!"


Mrs. B. Silly said...

OMG, that looks so tasty! I like to put the peas over my cornbread and sprinkle a little pepper sauce on them. Do you use pepper sauce in your neck of the woods? I'm referring to little peppers that are soaked in vinegar by Trappy's I think is the brand name. It's hard to come by around these parts but I brought a couple of bottles with me when I moved from Texas.

Cathy said...

Deb this looks so delicious! Do you use your indoor grill often? What brand is it? I used to have a stove-top grill, but don't have one in this house. I'm wondering about getting one like yours. Have I told you that I LOVE those farm animal shelf sitters on your header? So cute. laurie
