Skillet bbq pork chops recipe
Oh pork chops… oh how I love you. BBQ Pork chops… oh I love you more. 🙂 I don’t know any one who doesn’t love BBQ, and my love for BBQ just got better with this easy recipe.
I used to be nervous cooking with pork and for some reason it always intimidated me. I’m not sure why, but pork chops screamed “I’m too hard to cook” when I was younger. Anyone else?
Now I know better. Pork chops are so easy to make and they are such a fun and easy weeknight meal.
Now I love my crock pot pork chops with sauce and my italian crock pot pork chops, but I honestly prefer this easy Skillet BBQ pork chops recipe over all my other recipes.
Dinner is ready in 20 minutes… yep 20 minutes! Plus, the flavor is amazing and the skillet makes it so quick.
Skillet bbq pork chops taste amazing!
The pork is moist and tender with hardly any work at all. You can make this on busy school nights. It really is that easy!
Now for this recipe, you are going to need bbq sauce, but not just any sauce – KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce. You can use any flavor, but we really enjoyed the hickory brown sugar one.
It has a sweet and smokey flavor that pairs nicely with the pork. I promise, you are going to love it.
By the way, did you know that all KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce and marinade varieties are gluten free, except for Caribbean Jerk marinade and Honey Teriyaki marinade? How awesome is that?
