Barbeque Pork Chops

These are some great pork chops and another great recipe from Cooking Light. The sauce is wonderful and keeps the pork very moist. In fact, this sauce would be great on chicken as well. I can’t wait to make these again.

Barbeque Pork Chops



¼ Cup packed brown sugar

¼ Cup ketchup

1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce

Remaining ingredients:

2 bone-in center-cut pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)

1 tsp dried thyme

1 tsp garlic salt

¼ tsp ground red pepper

Cooking spray


Prepare grill or broiler.

To prepare the sauce, combine the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Place 1/4 cup sauce in a small bowl, and set aside.

Combine the thyme, garlic salt, and pepper; sprinkle over pork. Place pork on a grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 6 minutes on each side, basting with remaining sauce. Serve pork chops with reserved 1/4 cup sauce.

Taco Ring

This is a recipe I found on the cooking board I frequent. I have made it several times since and have enjoyed it everytime!. This makes a lot of food and could easily be halved, but Joe likes to take the leftovers to work.

It really does make a cute little presentation and could easily be served as an appetizer or for Sunday football!

Taco Ring


2 packages of crescent rolls (I used reduced fat)

1 lb ground beef

1 small onion

Taco seasoning, to taste

1 Cup mexican cheese

1 can refried beans (I used fat free)


Brown ground beef in a skillet until cooked through. Add onion and taco seasoning sauteing until transparent. Set aside.

On a round pizza pan lay crescent rolls out with the fat ends towards the middle of the pan and the pointed ends hanging off the edge of the pan. Layer beans, beef, and cheese. Fold the overhanging, pointed edges in and slightly tuck them in.

Bake in a 375 oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve as desired with shredded lettuce, sour cream, and salsa.

Makes 16 servings
