Vintage Oven-BBQ Pork Chops

If you are looking for a delicious, BBQ-y flavored pork chop that is easy on the cook, Vintage Oven BBQ Pork Chops are calling your name! This recipe requires a quick browning on the stovetop then the rest of the cooking is handled with expertise by your oven! Leaving you to relax, toss a salad, or even start that last load of laundry...


For a super easy dinner, place some potatoes in the oven to start baking before you begin browning the chops. Once the Vintage Oven BBQ Pork Chops are in the oven baking simply add a vegetable or salad, and you have dinner covered. Sometimes we like to serve these pork chops with Easy Slow Cooker Mac and Cheese, because, seriously, who doesn't like mac and cheese? 


Pork chops are one of our favorite cuts of meat. Personally, I never get tired of eating them, because they are so versatile. Pork is mild in flavor and adapts well to a wide variety of seasonings, as well as preparation methods. Pork is also a great source of B vitamins. No matter how you cook, whether plain or fancy, pork chops make a meal you will enjoy.


This recipe from Sunset Magazine originally called for a 9-inch baking pan. For as long as I have been cooking this recipe, four pork chops have never fit into a 9-inch pan! You will want an inch of room around each pork chop. If the chops are too close together, they will not bake properly. I have routinely used a 9X13 pan for baking these chops, always to perfection!  

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • pork chops
  • olive oil or bacon fat
  • onion
  • lemon
  • garlic salt & pepper
  • brown sugar, homemade brown sugar recipe found here.
  • catsup, for homemade catsup we offer our recipe here.
  • Frank's Hot Sauce
You will also need the following:
  • skillet
  • 9X13 baking dish
Now we are ready to begin.

Vintage Oven-BBQ Pork Chops, circa 1965!


Vintage Oven-BBQ Pork Chops
adapted from: The Sunset Casserole Cookbook ( circa 1965)

325-degree oven

4 loin pork chops, cut about 1 inch thick
whole wheat flour
bacon fat or oil for browning
Garlic salt
Pepper
4 thin slices of lemon
4 slices onion 1/4 inch thick - you want to use a large onion and cover the entire chop, trust me
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c catsup 
a dash of Frank's Hot Sauce if desired (I recommend!)

Sprinkle chops with whole wheat flour. 

Brown chops in a frying pan, when browned on both sides, arrange in a  square/rectangle baking pan or a casserole dish large enough to hold the chops without crowding.

Season with garlic salt and pepper.

Top each chop with a slice of onion, then a slice of lemon.

Combine remaining ingredients, stirring well, and divide evenly, spoon over the chops.

Bake 1 hour or until tender, in your oven. 

Storage options for Vintage Oven-BBQ Pork Chops. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to three days. This recipe may be frozen, however, you may find a loss of texture when thawed. Thaw completely in the refrigerator before reheating.
