Dr. Pepper Pork Chops

I forgot to mention this a few posts ago, but I have officially hit the 500 post mark! This is post number 504, so I am a little late. Happy Belated 500th blog posts to me! :)

Ok. Now onto the reason for my 504th post.

Dr. Pepper pork chops.

Yes. You read correctly. I am about to share with you my mother in law's recipe for Dr. Pepper pork chops. It is SUPER easy and oh so yummy. Lets dive in, shall we?

You need a whopping three ingredients. Pork chops, ketchup and Dr. Pepper (duh). Easy peasy.

Place your pork chops in a skillet. And make sure to coat it with cooking spray first. You don't want them to stick!

(Side note: Normally I would be able to get 4-6 pork chops in the skillet. But Daniel was in charge of the meat on grocery night and got the wrong one. So I was stuck with these whoppers. They tasted fabulous, but just bigger than what I was used to.)

Lightly sear the chops until they turn white, then flip them over and sear the other side.

See? Nice and pretty. :)

Now, take one cup of ketchup...

and one cup of Dr. Pepper...

and combine them together in a bowl.

Then pour the mixture over the seared pork chops.

Don't be afraid. Drown the pork chops in this stuff. It is definitely worth it.

Now, cover your skillet and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour. I usually let them simmer for closer to an hour. I really like it when the meat just falls apart on your fork.

And that is it folks! I would have one last picture showing you the finished product, but my husband and son inhaled these things as soon as they were done. So here I am with no picture. Its a rough life I live.
