Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Try an elegant dish with a down-home ingredient: ketchup! Combined with brown sugar, white wine vinegar and the juice of a lemon, it makes an piquant sauce that's sure to delight your guests. Slices of lemon over the chops make a flavorful decoration.

INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, brown pork chops on both sides. Remove chops and place them in a shallow baking dish.
  • Combine the ketchup, brown sugar, and vinegar. Pour mixture over chops, spreading to cover evenly. Cut 6 slices from the lemon, and lay one slice on top of each chop. Squeeze the juice from the remaining portion of lemon over the chops.
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Uncover and bake for 10 minutes more.
