  • 1 1/2-1 3/4 pounds bone-in, 3/4-inch-thick pork rib chops, trimmed of fat

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 

  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/3 cup orange juice 

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce 



  • Preheat the oven to 400�F.

  • Sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 teaspoons of canola oil in a large ovenproof skillet over high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until beginning to brown, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  • Add the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan. Add the onion, and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add the orange juice, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir in the barbecue sauce. Return the pork chops to the pan, turning several times to coat with the sauce.

  • Transfer the pan to the oven and bake until the pork chops are barely pink in the middle and an instant-read thermometer registers 145�F, 6-10 minutes. Serve the sauce over the pork chops.
