Sauce for Ribs or Pork Chops

on November 18, 2013

Today’s recipe says Dressing for Ribs or Pork Chops but it should say something more like Sauce for Ribs or Pork Chops.

Nobody uses the term “dressing” anymore unless it’s for salads or stuffing a turkey.

So I changed it.

When I read the recipe for the first time, I thought it sounded like a BBQ type sauce.

It’s not really a BBQ type sauce – more like a marinade.

Dressing for Pork Chops

It only took me 5 minutes to get this into the oven.

I made this with pork chops and they were delicious!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Sauce for Ribs or Pork Chops

1/2 cup ketchup

1 Tablespoon minced dried onion

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon hot sauce

1/4 teaspoon chili powder

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

2 Tablespoons brown sugar

Cover with foil and bake at 325 degrees for 2 hours, uncovering for the last 1/2 hour.


The sauce is actually quite watery and I thought maybe this one wouldn’t be such a great recipe.


I was wrong again – never doubt Grandma’s recipes.


The pork chops were tender and moist and had a great flavor.

Another very quick and easy recipe made to get dinner on the table with very little fuss.

This would be great for holiday company.

    Carla…did you marinade the pork chops in this first or just pour it over the pork chops right before you put it in the oven?
