These oven barbecued pork chops are easy to prepare and make a tasty everyday family meal. The pork chops are baked with a simple homemade barbecue sauce. The sauce will reduce and thicken as it bakes. It's an excellent alternative to grilled chops on a rainy day.

Serve these flavorful pork chops with coleslaw, beans, and roasted potatoes.

If you're pressed for time or don't have all of the ingredients, feel free to use a purchased barbecue sauce instead of the homemade sauce mixture.
