Cee's Cajun BBQ pork
Another wonderful recipe from my great friend, Cee.
PAN BBQ PORK CHOPS
1 1/2 T. butter
1 1/2 T. olive oil
1 lg. yellow onion, sliced
4 center-cut boneless pork chops (about 1 1/4 lb. total)
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper (I probably use more salt and pepper than this)
1 T. Louisiana Hot Sauce
4 T. bottled BBQ sauce (we like Sweet Baby Ray's)
1/2 T. dried oregano
(I add in 1 t. Cajun seasoning, too)
Heat butter and oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and saute until tender. Meanwhile, season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper.
Push onions to side of skillet. Increase heat to medium-high. Add pork chops; cook 1 minute on each side. Turn heat to lowest setting.
Mix hot sauce, BBQ sauce, oregano, salt and pepper (and Cajun seasoning) together and dribble onto pork chops. Cover and cook 5 minutes. Turn chops over and cook, covered, for 5 more minutes or until cooked through.
Arrange chops on serving platter. Increase heat to high under skillet. Cook and stir until onion mixture is reduced and slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Spoon sauce over the pork chops.
My note: I make a double batch of sauce because I usually serve it with fried potatoes or baked potatoes or mashed/garlic mashed potatoes and the barbecue-y onions are SOOOO yummy!
