The Best Way To Make Pork Cops With Homemade BBQ Sauce
You KNOW it’s a good week when I’m talking about meatloaf and pork chops all within the same week! And, it is just going to get better because, Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce and pineapples. On top of chops.
Hello, internet besties! What is happening? How’s life? Where did the time GO?! Someone mentioned a high school reunion that we’re supposed to have this year and I was all like in denial and stuff?? How is it NOT 1998?! SO weird. I mean, there’s Z. Cavarricci’s still hanging in my closet, for Pete’s sake! Also, I think I might still have Netscape on my desktop. And a Nirvana CD!!! in the disk case.
Okay okay. I’ll shuddup about the 90s. The best decade of forever and ever.
BUT but but, speaking OF the 90s. That’s when I learned about sweet, pulled pork! I had no idea what it was. For one, I didn’t grow up in the South, and two, I grew up on Macedonian food/cuisine. I didn’t even know what a classic casserole was until I entered college. Heck, I was a junior in high school when I first tried a Grilled Cheese Sandwich!
But no, I was not deprived of anything. I just had Turli Tava and Moussaka to look forward to every week.
Anyway. So, like, many moons ago I had a friend give me a recipe for pulled pork because she knew I loved to cook. At the time, I had never heard of it, and fruit over meat was totally NOT my thang. No way. NO no no!

And it was a HECK NO until I tried it.
OH.Em.Gee… Holy mother of Mary! I prayed I wouldn’t finish the entire pork shoulder all on my own. It was da bomb. LOVE was staring me in the face.
Best part of that recipe was that she only made it with about 3 ingredients! I’ll make sure to share what she gave me one of these days, but for now we’re going to focus on these pork chops which are based off that recipe, but not quite the same.
What Kind Of BBQ Sauce Do You Use For This Recipe?
Made with my favorite Homemade Honey Barbecue Sauce, I think you will love how easy this is to make, and it’s downright delicious. The meat is tender and wonderful, and the entire thing is drenched in a little barbecue sauce glazy glaze. Yesssss. SO GOOD!
Favorite thing about this? I drop it all in the crock pot, at the same time, and forgedaboutit.
Oh hi, perfection. Can’t wait to hang out with you again, soon.
