Barbecued Pork Chops on a Stick

Makes: 12 servings
Barbecued Pork Chops on a Stick
  • 1 1/4  cups  cider vinegar
  • 3/4  cup  ketchup
  • 3/4  cup  chopped red onion (1 large)
  • 3/4  cup  dried tart cherries
  • 1/3  cup  honey
  • 2  dried ancho chile peppers, stemmed, seeded, and cut up
  • 2  cloves garlic, slivered
  • 3/4  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1/8  teaspoon  ground cloves
  • 12 6  ounces  boneless pork loin chops, cut 1 inch thick
  • 12  8x1/4-inch-thick wooden skewers, dowels, or bamboo chopsticks*
  •  salt and black pepper

1. In a large saucepan combine vinegar, ketchup, onion, dried cherries, honey, chile peppers, garlic, coriander, and cloves. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 20 minutes or until dried cherries and chile pepper are softened and mixture is slightly thickened. Cool slightly. Transfer mixture to a blender or food processor. Cover and blend until nearly smooth; set aside.

2. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper as desired. Insert a wooden skewer into a short side of each chop.

3. For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 7 to 9 minutes or until chops are slightly pink in center and juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill/ Reduce heat to medium. Place chops on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) Brush sauce over chops during the last 5 minutes of grilling. If desired, reheat and serve additional sauce on the side.

From the Test Kitchen
  • To prevent wooden skewers, dowels, or chopsticks from burning while grilling chops, soak them in water for 30 minutes before inserting into chops.
