Pork Chops

Gayle over at is hosting a Friday Recipe Swap. Here's a recipe my sister came up with. It is really good!!

Pork Chops
2 - 2 1/2 cups honey
1/3 - 1/2 cup lemon juice
3/4 - 1 cup mustard
1/2 tsp. liquid smoke
12 - 16 pork chops

In skillet, lightly brown pork chops on both sides in bacon grease. Salt both sides reasonably well.

Mix rest of ingredients. Place porkchops in pan, pour sauce over top. Cover and let simmer over low-med/low for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or more.

I come from a pretty large family, so feel free to cut the recipe down to size. I realize that pork chops aren't the cheapest meat, but sometimes you can find them on markdown or a good sale.

I also freeze and reuse the juice at least one more time. I know some of you might not like that idea, but that's what I do rather than just throw it away, and I've never had a problem doing it. I try to freeze it right away after we're done eating and it's cooled down a bit, so it really doesn't sit out any, either before or after the cooking.

These sound good, I bet the liquid smoke give it a great flavor!

Thanks for sharing.

Those sound yummy. I just cleaned out my spice cupboard, and found a bottle of liquid smoke, and was wondering what I'd ever make with it, and voila! I find your recipe! LOL! Thanks for sharing!
