If you're looking for a spicy, tomato-based BBQ sauce that goes well with pork, look no further than over the neighbor's fence. I've had this recipe for probably 25 years! The smell from the neighbor's grill caught my father's attention one day and the rest is history. This is too good not to share. Thank you, Stella!
Once the sauce comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Grill your choice of bone-in or boneless pork chops. Put the chops directly on an outdoor grill or grill indoors with a Swiss Diamond Grill Pan.
Generously apply sauce with a basting brush to both sides while cooking.
Ideally, you want to cook pork until it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. You want to make sure the meat is no longer pink inside but you also want to be careful not to overcook it so you have a moist, juicy chop inside and out.
Originally from Utica, New York I'm now a displaced Yankee living in the South. I make a lot of Sicilian dishes that were handed down from my Dad's side of the family as well as what Dad would have called "American-eesh" things. Between marrying into a Polish family and moving South my cooking has definitely evolved. Luckily my husband and son are willing participants when it comes to my kitchen experiments and will always tell me if a recipe is a "keeper."
